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.

Bottle. Clear, Mahogony color with a small tan head that disperses into a thin film, some lacing. Aroma is pine with caramel, nutty, sweet, strong alcohol aroma. Flavor is similar, nicely hopped, definite alcohol in aftertaste, peach, sugar, loads of caramel, touch of smoke. Very nice.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Aroma of caramel, dark ripe fruit, raisin, plum, licorice, toasted wood and citrus. Dark amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left ok lace. Flavor is sweet and malty with a bitter finish. Palate is medium-full body and soft with a little alcohol bite. A good one but still a little young. Another year or two and it should really come together.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Aroma - sweet caramel malts and some dough, as well as some honey. Appearance - tenne orange body, with nice nucleation. Head is off-white and starts at 1/2" and fades slowly. The head settles into a nice layer of foam. There is some dappled lacing. Taste - sweet malt, with burnt sugar, alcohol, some honey, saffron, and Columbus hops. Palate - body is closer to full than medium, the texture slightly oiled and also slick, the carbonation average, the finish has a some bitter hops and astringent alcohol.

A smooth and drinkable barleywine. The hops are well-balanced with the caramel-like malts. Alcohol not too present. Well-made and well-typed.

DenverLogan (1197) - LA, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Ive had this many times over the years, including on tap at the Toronado in San Francisco years ago when they tied for the bronze. In front of me is a 12 oz bottled that says best before 1/29/14. Pours a rich brown with large brown head and lace. Aroma of rich malts and earth. Medium carbonation and significant moughfeel. Flavors of malt balls, caramel, baking chocolate, leather, straw hops, carob. Overall big and bold with a significant smoothness through until a slightly bitter chocolate, dry finish.

JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
17th anniversary. Murky brown pour not much head that kind of looks like a thin syrup. Slight caramel and hop aroma. Taste is mild chocolate with a nice crisp hoppy clean sweet finish. I think the alcohol is very well hidden in this. Not very complex though for a barley wine.

scottw86 (1175) - Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Poured a deep reddish-copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some brown sugar and caramel. Some very good flavors. Taste also is hoppy with some resin. Very well balanced. Good caramel flavors with molasses and syrup. Alcohol is well hidden and it is very smooth. Very good!

Excellent American barleywine. Big hoppy nose, gorgeous reddish amber color; very complex, flavorful beer with a nice balance of hops and malt. Loved it.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2006
2005 bottle, 12th anniversary shared by jerc. Warm dark amber colour with a mostly diminishing frothy tan head. Fresh oranges and other citrus aroma, light caramel notes. Toffee, orange flavours with a harsh yeasty bitter finish - possibly vegemite? No hop flavour, only bitterness, plus limited sweetness, perhaps overattenuated and too dry for the bitterness. Light to medium bodied.
