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

Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty, caramel. Flavor does reflect the alcohol and is not hidden. Finishes dry. Nothing special here.

2008/xv vintage thanks to a fellow rb’er, 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.

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

foxo82 (900) - 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.

3.2
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

Marstonlad (885) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2017 Bottle at Old English Pub, Jyväskylä. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized frothy head. The aroma features rich sweet maltiness, ripe fruitiness and piney hoppiness. Taste is initially sweet, later becoming more and more bitter; flavours of caramel, fudge, pine, sherry, oak. Potent but refined; not harsh or boozy. Both very malty and hoppy. The palate is medium to full bodied, low in carbonation. Quality brew.

b33r (875) - Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2014
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.

3.6
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.

3.5
Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2006
XI Bottle -- Dark brown and read body. Medium light brown head. Good malts and mollasses in the aroma, some plums and raisins. Sharp hops and carbonation in the initial taste. Some interesting citrus accents as well. Spicy initial pallet which calms down to a nice carbonated sweetness in the end.
