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.

Frothmeister (809) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed garnet with a tan head. On the nose, resinous hops, dark dried fruits, faint molasses, and a very light note of cocoa. Taste wise, sweet and full bodied with a load of resinous hops, lots of sticky dried fruit notes, and light hints of dark coffee that head into toffee, a big whack of resinous hops, faint earthy notes with some molasses, and some mineral bitterness in the long malty resinous finish. In the world of barley wines, this isn’t terribly complex, but it’s SO goddamn tasty, so right now, who cares about complexity!

Marstonlad (905) - 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.
