COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in small batches annually to commemorate Uintas anniversary, this soul-warming brew is now available year-round. (Uintas anniversary is observed and noted by the change of the roman numeral on the label.) Uintas 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.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle from the XVII Anniversary release. A: The beer pours almost mahogany in color with a nice big off-white head and sticky lacing. S: A nice bit of citrus hop aroma, particularly grapefruit and grapefruit peel. There is a big floral note to it as well. Toffee, molasses, and brown sugar provide a nice sweetness to the beer. T: Plenty of brown sugar, molasses, and toffee sweetness to provide this beer with a nice base. The hops are a very nice accent to it all and there is a solid bitterness and perfumey hop flavor. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. Sort of creamy on the tongue. O: This was a pretty solid barleywine. Really easy to drink and a solid flavor profile.
