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.

luttonm (2568) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12oz bottle, Seattle. Dark leathery mahogany, small foam. Cherry fruitness and roasty malt aroma. Ruddy, roasty body with a hint of alcohol and bite of hops. Dark grain, smoke and leather while still remaining pretty bright. Tasty beer.

dlovell2 (950) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark brown amber color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, brown sugar, dried plums, and herbal hops. Flavor is thick sweet caramel malt, dark brown sugar, molasses, dark dried fruit flavors and a pine hoppy finish. Thick syrupy mouth feel.

RedSox2004 (1351) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Muddy reddish brown with a one-finger beige head and a thin veil of lace. Aromas is all sweet and fruity caramel with ample dried fruits and resinous hops. Big caramel and dark fruit sweetness up front with grassy and pine hop bitterness adding lots of life. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy but boozy finish.

Ron (2727) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, citrus and hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and bitter finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. The alcohol is only slightly noticeable. Maybe I’ll pickup another to cellar.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Really nice take on the barley wine style. Smooth opening with a light hop finish. Hides the double digit abv very well. --you've been Dubbed.

Erasmus_ro (1525) - Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with a decent-sized, dark beige head. Aroma is lightly tropical hoppiness on the pour. Resin, caramel, pith, pine later on, from the glass. Taste is a lot of resin and caramel, pine too. Some orange, dried fruit on the finish. Full with fairly high carbonation.

DSG (6470) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle sample at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvsn. Clear deep amber-brown with a nice stable beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, biscuits and some stale hops. Sweet flavor, malty, with caramel, cookies, stale hops and a bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Decent.

Aurelius (4445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Dark, ruddy walnut brown. Tight tan head. Bright, hoppy 2xAIPA aroma. Very nice. West coast hops, lots of darkish malting, sturdy bittering but I wouldn’t call it aggressive. A bit on the acidic side, but great balance otherwise. Maybe a little fruitiness. Tell ya what... sight unseen, I’d bet on a Uinta brew anytime based on what I have had to this point.

banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
2 year old bottle. Aroma of caramel and tobacco. Taste is medium hoppy, with notes of said caramel and tobacco, but also some tofee, bread and pine. Really, really good and balanced after 2 years.

dEnk (4068) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle @tasting. Aroma is huge fresh hops, caramel, liquorice, fruits, raisin/plums, etc etc. Promising. Flavour is liquid bitter and hoppy for a barleywine, with big caramel, liquorice and fruits. Very nice.
