COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in small batches annually to commemorate Uinta’s anniversary, this soul-warming brew is now available year-round. (Uinta’s anniversary is observed and noted by the change of the roman numeral on the label.) Uinta’s award winning barley wine has a dark amber hue with a rich malty character. Serious amounts of hops are used to balance its hardy alcohol content of over 10% ABV. Originating in England in the nineteenth century, barley wines are brewed with the same traditional ingredients as beer: water, malted barley, hops and yeast. There are no grapes or fruit used in the brewing process. The name “barley wine” refers to its alcohol content being similar to that of most wines, ranging from 8.5% to 14% ABV. Unlike most beers, barley wines age remarkably well. If you have the will power, set an Anniversary Barley Wine aside for a year or more.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 Bottle... Clear ruby ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Fruity, malty nose. Well-balanced, malty flavor. Medium sweetness... toffee and caramel. Medium bitterness... pink grapefruit. Mildly tangy. Not overly boozy. Medium-bodied and lightly oily with soft carbonation. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish. Thanks to scraff for sharing!

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle. 12th Anniversary. Dark brown body, good fingers worth of luscious creamy beige head. Hoppy, tangy malt aroma is moderate. Booze emerges as the glass warms. Flavour is dominated by green vine like, not quite leafy, full hops bitterness that is not always pleasant as it lacks sufficient hop flavour to balance it. Needs more hop in the flavour or less bitterness to let the muted caramel malt shine through - needs to pick a direction. Average to medium palate. (3+) Big rough around the edges.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Twelfth Anniversary (XII) bottled 2005. Deep brown with reddish hues. An inch of rocky light tan foam. Good head retention and lacing. Sweet caramel malt and a hint of pine in the aroma. Sweet caramel malt and piney hop flavors are blended with a drier, earthy, woody, and even leathery, presence. Fullish body, moderate carbonation. Dry bitter leathery aftertaste lingers. Normally I like this, but with this beer find it oddly unpleasant. My initial reaction is that this is a little brother to Bigfoot with a long way to go to grow up. There are better barleywines.

Deep ruby color, straight up malt. mildly warming with a relativly minimual alchohol note. not as complex as I like to see in a barley wine

10th Anniv. - Clear ruby with a fine tan head. Aroma is alcohol, toffee, and caramel. The flavor is bitter hops and toffee up front with alcohol throughout. It falls flat as it seems that the beer fermebnted out too much robbing it of the necessary residual sugars to hold things together. Bitter alcoholic finish.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2004
2003 vintage, sampled draught at Stuffed Sandwich, Greater Los Angeles.
Dark brown with creamy head. Some vinous berries upo front. Sweet, buttery and very malty. Salty with loads of toffee. More of an English style barley wine, than an American hop monster variety. May I call for the substyle Utah Barley Wine ;-)

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Dark rust. Slightly oxidized, malt melded aroma with rich malt (caramel, nuts, fruit) and a bit of resin and grapefruit. Malt accented barley wine for sure with notes of red apples, plums and hops, that show a bit of spice, resin and pine. An average barley wine.
