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.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown ruby red color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is malty, a bit astringent. Flavor is sweet, heavily malty, slight alcohol. Lingering nutty kick in the finish. Tasty.

Darwenus (1009) - Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a rich caramel color with a slight head that leaves some lace. The aroma isnt very strong. Theres some malt and a little honey in the smell, but it isnt overpowering with sweetness, which is something I often dislike about barley wine. Where this thing really stands out is the flavor. Huge, huge strong malt and only a slight background sweetness, and some bitter hops in the flavor. Its crisp, not syrupy like some barley wine can be. This thing might disappoint some barley wine fans, but for someone like me who isnt in love with the style, this is very good.

Flowers, hops and zinfandel all packed in a nose that accompanies a gorgeous bright red hue. Soft and velvety in the mouth...wow! 10.4 abv! Some grass accompanies barley, malt, and extremly high percentage cocao.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a rich reddish brown, slight amount of tan head. Aroma dull caramel, some resin and fresh line overtones. Body full and lively, not at all syrupy. Finish sweet and treacly, with a woody pine character. Aroma underwhelming but otherwise really nice, especially for the money.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Bottle shared by Crosling, thanks Nick. Poured a deep ruby-brown color with a thin beige head that faded to a layer. Aroma of light caramel, some earthy minerals, and light citrus. Light, sharp malt entry with some metallic mineral taste and caramel leads into a lightly bitter hop presence with some undertones of citrus. Moderate fullness on the palate, nice bite. Decent brew, but doesn’t really seem like a traditional barley wine.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Pours a clear light brown with a smallish beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, hops, caramel, and light alcohol. Taste is hoppy and fruity, with raisins and plums. Finish is bitter, boozy, and a little dry. Very nice. Body is full with some light carbonation. Pleasantly surprised to find this was made in Utah!

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
bottle, typical in your face barley wine. Pours brown/red color. Aroma of sweetness and some hints of hops. Full body, thick dark fruits and sweetness. Well balanced with a malty backbone. Surprisingly, there was little to no alcohol on the taste. Defintely well balanced. This is a classic barley wine, usually not my style. This one is not bad.

XII. This one’s been in my cellar for a while. I haven’t had a lot of luck with this brewery, I even had an employee of Uinta contact me with a very nasty e-mail about my ratings. Pours a medium bodied dark amber color with a few small bubbles but no real head. The aroma is mild plums and some earthy carmel malts. The flavors is semi-sweet caramel, a little tobacco, molasses, and a very subtle hop presence. The alcohol is pretty much non-existant in the flavor. This one is way past it’s prime but still my favorite Uinta to date. I’ll pick up a fresh bottle soon to compare.
