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.

tfontana (917) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is strong bready and caramel malts with floral and fruity hints. Mildly astringent. Appearance is hazy dark reddish-orange with discernible floating sediment, minimal sparkle, finger-width fluffy beige head with fair retention and nice lacing. Taste is much like aroma with front half sweet malt and second half yielding to more nuanced fruit notes and some citrus. Palate is medium bodied with thick, sticky texture, esophageal warmth and sweet, long finish. Overall, avoids being overly sweet and has a bit of hop complexity.

2008/xv vintage thanks to a fellow rber, thanks! actually not bad. not great. might do ok after another year or two, so give it say 5 i would say. slight notes of smooth subtle dark fruits are showing up, but theres still a hop and alcohol mask over them on your palate. still a very big hop bitterness present. drinks fairly well, but still hot in the mouth. aroma is a oot closer to what you would want, was surprised at the bitterness masking the taste, which follows suite of the aroma and almost achieves greatness in this brew.

thetmaxx (913) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty, caramel. Flavor does reflect the alcohol and is not hidden. Finishes dry. Nothing special here.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2009
[Bottle] shared by STLWill. Pours clear raisin brown with a medium to large tan head. Aroma is alcohol, sherry-like oxidation, caramel, and soap/detergent. Flavor is oddly bitter, caramel, sherry, and soap. Thin and watery.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2003
9th Anniversary: no real aroma but hops, big frothy head, black ruby color, thin and sweet with dirty feet bitterness, terribly offensive bitter finish, damn sketchy utah barleywine I should've known better

Bebum (895) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2017 Amber/pink, clear or hazy, pink foam, pretty bottle lable. Pronounced alcoholic, barnyardy and bready nose. Full body, smooth texture, foamy, intense flavor, hot mouthfeel, lingering aftertaste. Assertively bittersweet, crisp, bitter finish. Herbal, hoppier than most other barley wines, malty, fruity, pears, yeasty. Characterful, assertive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 12, 2001
Deep ruby color, straight up malt. mildly warming with a relativly minimual alchohol note. not as complex as I like to see in a barley wine

foxo82 (884) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from beersofeurope.com. Cloudy, muddy chocolate brown. Smells strongly, sickly sweet aroma of hoppy syrup. Taste is fruit cake, sultanas, with a strongly bitter malt tang finish. Warming. Strong alcohol. Perhaps too thin but very nice all the same.

10.4%, Beautiful deep dark amber brown color with small tan head and messy lacing. Aroma and flavor have strong caramel malt notes with a strong hoppy bitter finish. Pretty good overall.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Pours to a murky orange brown with thin off white head that dissipates quickly to little lacing. Nose is malty dark fruit, molasses, sugar and a hint of citrus hops. Mouthfeel is somewhat full and syrupy thick, and the taste picks up the fruits and sweet syrup of the nose, with the bite of the alcohol as the beer warms. Finish is warming and a little thick-mouthed. Not a bad beer overall.
