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.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Mahogany colored with a layer of sudsy tan foam and bubbles. Mild notes of citrus, caramel malt, dark fruits and pine resin in the aroma. Taste opens up with a fair amount of toasted malt, caramelized sugars and toffee along with some raisin and citrus rind toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a bit of creaminess and low carbonation. Definitely on the hoppier end of the spectrum for a Barley Wine.

Sampled as XI (2004), Bottle: Heavy grapefruit and citrus aroma, hints of butterscotch and pears, distinct floral hopping; thin and dry, substantially bitter and rough throughout; simple malt profile heavy on carmelized toffee and hotly alcoholic flavor (1 yr old?!?) ; harsh and unrefined.

Deep amber with medium light brown head. Aroma dark sugars, booze, faint citrus hops. Full body. Alcohol is prominent but mostly manages to stay out of the way. Just on the acceptable side of syrupy. Quite sweet at first but balances out eventually. Toffee, dates, candied citrus are there. Lots of malt. Pretty good.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
X 2003 10th anniversary bottle. Dark brown-amber, hard to see through, very nice head that dissapates and laces. Malty candy-citrus alcohol hops aroma. Begins malty, somwhat sweet and then astringent with hops alcohol in a bitter finish. Not as complex as one expects a top-notch BW to be, a good effort though.

SamTheBarrel (781) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
330ml brown bottle, with a retro looking label, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is cloudy amber with a medium size khaki colored head, when recuded left a lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and caramel. Flavours of grapefruit, resin, caramel and lemon cest. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Overall a great Barley Wine.

Another score from the state store. Yep, the best beer Ive tried from this brewer. Bottle, XII anniversary bwine. Nice translucent mahogany color....small tannish head that hung around for a bit. Classic big malty caramel nose with some piney hoppiness to boot. Big bitter hop bite at the initial taste that subsides to allow that toffee/caramel malt presence come through. Nice mouthfeel...adequate carbonation...pretty good. I couldnt find much to not like about this. Ill let some sit for another year or so and revisit.

Deep copper, clear, persistent tan head. Aroma: deep malt with toffee, toast and light raisin, piney-resiny hop with light citrus. Flavor: bready, toasty malt with toffee, firm bitterness, piney, citrusy hop flavor, bitterness lingers in finish. Full bodied, warming. Great American barleywine. This bottle was late 2011 release (after they stopped numbering the bottles) and was consumed about 2 months old.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 27, 2009
16th anniversary edition, 12 oz bottle - Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with medium sized light tan head that leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma has rich caramel, candy apples, light citrusy hops, very faint orange peel, oak, and cinnamon. Flavor is thick with chewy malts and nutty caramel, soapy hops, faint metallic notes, with a somewhat astringent bitterness. The aroma on this is pretty nice - not the best barleywine aroma Ive smelled, but pretty good. The flavor however is just not there. Some aspects might mellow with more age, but some aspects just seem like fermentation issues, IMO.

Bottle @ home. Clear dark red / brown and a lasting biege head. Malty sweet aroma, caramel, grainsbiscuits, wood, toffee, pine, passion fruit, dark fruits, some alcohols. Taste is similar and with lots of caramel and bittering hops hitting you instantly and a big mouth feel. Aftertaste is dry bitter and woody.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2010
14th. Bottled 1/08. Pours a dark ruby with a small off white head. Retention isnt great but it never disappears. Aroma shows intense caramel maltiness. Graham cracker. A floral spiciness is also evident along with an almost pepper component. Im really liking the aroma on this. Flavor is similar. A moderately strong hop flavor is present, surprising given its age. Nutty, caramel, somewhat bitter. Slightly sweet. Somewhat intense. I would say this has held up very well. Ive never had this before so I dont know how it compares at different ages but at the 2.5 year mark its a solid barleywine.
