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.

14th Anniversary Bottle: Courtesy of TBC...thanks Matt. Pours a clear, dark amber with no head. Notes of caramel, roasted malts, wheat and a hint of fruitiness...not much of a hop profile to it. Medium bodied...flavors of toasted grains, some woodsy/earthy characteristics and some hints of caramel.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is strong bready and caramel malts with floral and fruity hints. Mildly astringent. Appearance is hazy dark reddish-orange with discernible floating sediment, minimal sparkle, finger-width fluffy beige head with fair retention and nice lacing. Taste is much like aroma with front half sweet malt and second half yielding to more nuanced fruit notes and some citrus. Palate is medium bodied with thick, sticky texture, esophageal warmth and sweet, long finish. Overall, avoids being overly sweet and has a bit of hop complexity.

Subdued aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Pours a caramel Color from bottle but sits deep amber in glass with a of white didn’t head with some retention and good lacing.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a dark reddish color with an off-white head and some lacing. The aroma is boozy with hops and fruit. The taste is bitter hops, dried fruit, alcohol, and wood. The alcohol is noticeable and warming. This is a good sipping beer. It’s definitely a heavy hitter.

Deep reddish brown. Nose full of toasty malts, caramel, dark fruit, raisin, grapefruit hops and mild pine. Flavor is more of the same with toasted malt, raisin, caramel, and bitter grapefruit. No booze to be found. This was outstanding, very surprised by the other ratings.
