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.

Aroma of malts, fruits and hops. Appearance is a somewhat darkend amber with a light foam head. Tastes of roasted nuts, big fruits and some malt. The finish leaves a spicey, fruity aftertaste. The texture is thin and crisp. Overall, This brew is a nice mixture of flavors with strong fruits and malts. Id give this an A- rating.

Fifteenth anniversary. Bottled 5-16-08. Pours a hazy, burgundy color with a small to medium, beige, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace fingers. Nose is nice, complex and rich, with lots of maple and raisins, dried orange peel, toffee, toasted caramel, light roasted wood, cinnamon, wisps of alcohol, and hops which are slowly fading to only hints at floral and grapefruit. Flavor is similar with maple and roasted maple wood, lots of dried orange peels, raisins, light toffee, some lightly roasted malts, and again floral and grapefruit hops which are back drops to the malts but still bring a moderate bitterness. Palate is round, soft, and medium; a bit thin for a BW. Finish is mildly warm, more bitter than sweet, and noting floral, maple wood, light roast, and cinnamon. After well over a year, and still doing well, but the warmth is still notable and the malt richness is only good. The palate is thin and the appearance is fair, but overall I did enjoy the beer.

Not bad. Probably one of the best, if not the best beer that is brewed in Utah. Nice dark amber colour, fairly strong alcohol flavour with nice depth. Not a fantastic barley wine, but good for Utah.

on draft: asked the guy in the booth what the abv was.....uhh, dont really know that was a bad first impression. however the barley wine wasnt all that bad. mahogony color with cascades up the nose. stones ipa has this much hop character and even more. so maybe a little thin for a barley but hey, it comes from utah.

Upper tier barleywine in my opinion. Well balanced, not overly hoppy. Also, lots of fruits, cherry, berry, grape, not just big and sweet, but with complexity. Retains a lot of drinkability for the abv. Better warm...

XIV vintage from IrishBoy via trade. Thanks again Richard! The pour was an attractive ruby and brown swirl with a nice off-white head. Spotty bits of lacing. The initial aroma was a pleasant blast of citrus hops that gave way to roasted malt, syrupy sweet sugars and rye toast. The flavor was lots of bitter hops with some milder caramel and roasted malt struggling to eke through. The mouthfeel was on the thin side and the alcohol heat was definitely present.

A decent barelywine that seems to lacking in a proper balance of flavors. The bottle I had said 10% alcohol and hid it very well. May be better with age.
