look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- poured a clear deep ruby-tinted brown. Creamy tan head doesn't have huge retention but does linger and leave some lacing

S-minimal aroma with some mild malt notes

T- more hop-forward than traditional barley wines. Some nice malt flavors (think dark fruit) underpin the earthier hops notes. Flavor develops well as the beer warms.

M- nice and full with a bite from the hops on the finish

O- a good ale, less a traditional barley wine than just a good ale

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark red with two fingers of light tan head that is still there after five minutes and leaves rings of lacing on the glass.
Smell is figs molasses and dank hops.
Taste is molasses figs bitter hops that are pushed aside from the malty sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden by the huge sweet malts.
Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated chewy full body and a medium bitter finish.
Overall a fine beer in this style. Probably a one or two beer night due to the high abv. Enjoy!

appears a medium brown color, clear, with ruby highlights. cream colored head. rich malty aroma, smells slightly boozy. taste is malt dominate as well - but not too sweet - good level of earthy bitterness. no alcohol in the taste. medium body and carbonation.

overall it drinks easy for a big beer - nice flavor and easy to drink.

A beer to remember, I've had this before and can't wait to review it.

Pours a dark red/brown that leaves an abundance of lacing and ring around the edge.

Smell is big molasses, dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, danky hops, leather, fig, raisin, dates, lets just say alot more complexity than bigfoot.

Taste is a warming sensation of malty goodness, with dark fruit flavors, leather, caramel, figs, dates, just a really enticing selection of specialty malts. Very well balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness from the hops and malt.

Feel is good for the style, just a bit thick, and medium carbonation.

Overall I think this, just ever so slightly kicks old guardian's, and bigfoot's butt. I found this to be less hop forward than the aforementioned. Try this if you get the chance, its well worth the 3$ per 12oz price.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, bottled 3/19/13. Pours a brownish ruby with a one inch off white head, that leaves behind loads of lace. Smell is toffee, caramel, biscuit, earthy hops, and hints of fig. Taste is loaded with toffee, brown sugar, fig, and a blast of caramel hangs around in the tongue. Body is fairly large, nice carbonation, a touch dry, and easy drinking for its heft. Very nice!

4.5/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Excellent deep ruby red in color. One finger head that settles within a few minutes. Laces beautifully. Very clean clear richly colored beer.

S: Not as big of a nose as most barleywines. Some citrus and oakiness. Maybe some raisin and hints of carmel.

T: This is quite hoppy for a barleywine. Delicious, but not what I was expecting at all. Citrus, some pine then the malty flavors take over. Oak, toffee, some raisin. Very little alcohol taste.

M: Quite light for this beer style. Moderate carbonation. Very balanced and a great sipper.

O: This is an excellent beer. Quite a bit hoppier than I was expecting but it balanced nicely. This is a big beer at 10.4% but drinks quite a bit lighter. If I had bought the 4 pack, I could see these being dangerous.

Possibly my favorite new barley wine. Suberb lacing that clings to my glass like a net. Murky, nut-brown appearance with gold around the edges. Aroma is equally malts and hops; sweet leather, prunes, blackberries, a brandy-like alcoholic hotness in the nose. First sip is equal parts piney, resiny hop bitterness, and syrupy sweet alcohol warmth. Characteristics of an Arrogant Bastard distilled to 10.4% ABV, meaning I taste a similar hop profile (Chinook).Warms down the throat all the way to the belly. Thick and viscous in the mouth with a mild carbonic bite. Truly outstanding and worth trying if you see it.

Oh yes, Utah steps up and smacks one over the fence. A delicious surprise after so many expensive disappointments.

I've got one in front of me right now, let's dance...

ST: Poured out of a 12oz bottle (actually 1 and a half bottles) into an oversized Duvel tulip that's been beat down, chipped and filed smooth at the base several times. This ones seen three years of quality beers. My favorite chalice for sure.

A: Viscous when tilted sideways, tan moderate head bubbling down the sides, beautiful ruby color on the ends going mahogany towards the middle, pretty cool to marvel at and take a long exhale.

S: Deceivingly sweet, a malty Godzilla for sure.

T: Mmm... Roasty up front, backed off sweetness (comparatively), molasses nuance in the middle with rum raisin and black pepper on the back end. Woodiness starting to accumulate after a couple of sips... Nice.

M: Springy carbonation when freshly poured then dissipating somewhat shortly thereafter. A medium body, molten malty yumminess, but not one of those creamy ones. Slightly dry.

O: So nice to pick a winner with limited dollars. A vote of confidence for exploring the rest of the Uinta menu. Good job, brewers.

BEST BEFORE 03/19/14

A: Pours a deep ruby/mahogany color with a little over a fingers worth of head that sticks around forever. Leaves some nice sticky lacing behind as well

S: On the hoppier side. Get some citrus zest, some earthiness, and light spearmint. Malt is also very present, and lends some woodiness and caramel sweetness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a wave of bitter citrus rind and some fruitiness with the woodiness and caramel in tow. Bitterness is quite present throughout and well into the finish. Alcohol provides a nice warmth and compliments the woody notes

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Hop bitterness is littered throughout this barleywine. Even though the malts keep right up with the hops, the bitterness winds out in the end. So, if you enjoy a hop-forward American barleywine, this one could definitely fit the bill

3.46/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours up a slight amount of head which appears to have some retention. The head is a light to medium beige while the body is a deep maroon with hints of garnet that appears as mix between a light orangish-crimson and a dark amber when held up to the light. A tiny bit of sheeting extends from the surface of the beer. Leaves a good amount of lacing after I drink more.

Nose- Fairly muted for a barleywine. There is the obligatory caramel followed by light hints of brown sugar and molasses but not much else. Aroma from the glass is practically non-existent. Maybe some raisin. Swirling shows a sour, akin to rye, quality.

Taste- Caramel (as in the aroma) is the dominant characteristic here. However, there is also a lot of oakiness with a lot of present which would usually be a big negative for me but it seems well rounded and well countered by the hints of brown sugar. The alcohol is apparent but not grating. The notes of caramel, oak, and brown sugar are pretty big and gives this beer a lot of presence. However, this seems to be all there is to this beer. Good presence, good balance, but lacking in what also defines most good barleywines- complexity. The caramel and brown sugar seem a little burnt in the middle and give rise to a blend of weak sourness and slight raisin. I would prefer this fresh barleywine to be messier as that would portend a brighter future. It does not appear that will be the case and I would not suggest aging- unless you want a really boring barleywine. But don't get me wrong. This is a highly accessible, high gravity beer and would be an easy introduction for the novice.

Mouthfeel- Pretty much medium bodied with a good deal of carbonation for a barleywine. Too much for me anyway.

Drinkability- If this beer were more interesting, it would be scary. But it's not. I would rather get some Bigfoot.

Overall- Above average to almost good. A boring barleywine but still pretty tasty. Worth a try. You might find you like this low-key, high alcohol offering.

4.73/5  rDev +23.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from bottle into snifter glass

A- Beautiful dark ruby red liquid, clear with no floatys. Nice tight bubbly head that sticks around for about a minute before falling down to just a clumpy bubbly pool in the middle of the beer and around the edges of the glass. Nice lacing.

S- Smells of sweet floral candied hops, fermented raisons and brown sugar. I can pick up the alcohol but it is masked nicely through the other pleasant aromas.

T- Taste is much like the smell, although the hops aren't too bittering on the palette. Some rich creamy malt. The alcohol like the scent is also hidden quite nicely. It is sweet but not too sweet and bitter but not too bitter. Overall, for a fresh American style barley wine, this is balanced quite nicely.

M- Mouthfeel is rich, creamy and smooth. This is quite nice as it is a little chewy and thick, but this is a big beer. Some carbonation adds to the texture. The lightness of the bubbles add to the creamy texture, but as it's not too prickly, it goes down well. It's very drinkable.

O- Overall this is an excellent representation of the style. In addition, the price is right. It seems to be readily available at the moment as well. I would like to lay down a few four packs of this and see how it matures. Since there is some bitterness and a lot of complexity, I think this would be a great candidate for a couple years of aging. Cheers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark cherry wood with a very appealing garnet quality. Poured in snifter with very slight head.

S: Fresh bread aroma with a good deal of yeast on the nose, similar to a hefeweizen or similar wheat beer. Slight boozy aroma in the tail end.

T: Caramel, sweet butter scotch, bready character initially. Quite a sweet barley wine. The back-end has a boozy, hoppy bitterness to counteract the sweetness. Leaves a molasses like after taste.

M: The first few sips are fairly heavy, but alleviates halfway through the glass. Not too thick, but pleasantly hefty.

O: Another fine offering from Uinta. This beer isn't too complex or wild, but very enjoyable. This is my first barley wine so I do not have anything to compare it to, but as an introduction to the style I like it a lot.

Although I like Uinta, I was a bit disappointed with this barleywine. I held on to it for a few months (probably should have been more), but I expected to like it more than I did. It seemed to be lacking in most areas--a bit thin, average taste, not as much complexity as I'd hoped. Even the alcohol didn't seem to be too present. It seemed to be lacking something, and that's sad. I'll revisit this some day, but it won't be on my regular rotation of barleywines, like Insanity, JW Lees Harvest Ale, Solstice d'hiver, and Lower de Boom.

Served in an Olde Hickory glass.

A: Poured clear mohogany with a slight head.

S: Sort of a fruit - malt symphony. None really stuck out.

T: Melted "Astro-Pop", grains (only a bit), and quite a bit of sugar.

M: Low carbonation, slight lacing, and a good bit of sweetness. Honestly, I wish it were more hoppy.

O: Really nice entry, especially considering the 4-pk was only $9.99.

Deep, ruby red body with a thick, foamy head. Toasted grains and caramel dominate the aroma. Boozy, malty flavors, well-tempered with hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, rich, syrupy.

Bold, boozy, malty! An eye-popper of a beer and will bring a smile of delight to big beer lovers...

In a snifter this beer was a dark brown, kind of like mahogany. There was a rim of head at the periphery of the glass. Some scant lace.

A caramel aroma. Some dark fruit. Resiny hops.

Caramel taste. Raisins. Hops late.

On the milder side, but still a tasty barleywine. Worth a try.

Had this for the first time poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter:

A - A rich, dark mahogany with 3/4" head.

S - Deep oaky and rich fruity aroma; boozy with slight nutty hints.

T - Follows well with the smell; fruity (mostly raisin) flavour with a boozy finish.

M - Not quite as thick as the colour would lead you to believe, but a nice balance of thick/creamy and light with a final bite at the end.

O - A quality beer. I've had many a barley wine, some better than this, but not many. Overall, it has everything I look for in a good barley wine with a few little surprises (Nutty hints in the smell and a very crisp finish). I recommend.

3.6/5  rDev -6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. I'd reckon the bottle is perhaps a year old.

A: Pours a dark chestnut color. About two fingers of mocha-colored head is formed, with an excellent creaminess. Retention is decent, and as the head fades, it leaves behind spotty lacing on the glass.

S: This still has some notable leafy, tobacco-esque hop touches left in it. I even notice some touches of roasted malts, to go alongside the (mild) caramel. There's also a touch of must. I'm not blown away by the aroma, though I like the lack of boozy qualities.

T: There's a small touch of roasted malt to open the brew up. I'm glad the hops don't just provide a generic bitterness at its age, but also some noticeable flavors of spruce, tobacco, marijuana, and general herbs. There is a touch of earthy booze flavor on the back end - though it's not really felt - and even a bit of salty umami. The latter grows bolder as it warms up, which isn't entirely desirable. Other than that, there isn't much to fault here.

M: Medium bodied and rather creamy. The long finish does a good job of drying the palate without exposing the alcohol too severely. This is fairly easy to drink for 10.4%, also.

O: Good barleywine. Some will dislike it low sweetness, but I enjoy the fact it's not cloying. I'm not sure how much I'd like this fresh; this seems like it's at the perfect age.

3.25/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Rich deep mahogany with some gold hues. Very slight tan head that rests along the rim. Some splotchy patches of continuously bubbling carbonation. Not much lacing

Aroma: Lots of sweet caramel and (not entirely surprising) toasty barley. Some boozy fruit. Apples and figs. Thick resiny hops. Slightly earthy

Taste: Follows nose with more emphasis on the hops. Starts with a slightly syrupy barley sweetness. Buttery. Resiny earthy hops kick in around the mid palate and stick around for the duration. Faint pine. Strangely salty. Not detecting any alcohol but I'm not really enjoying this one

Mouthfeel: Starts off smooth and watery but ends up thick and syrupy and very drying with a slight burn of alcohol

Overall: Maybe I should have aged this for a bit. The taste is fairly complex but the saltiness is very offputting. Probably wouldn't revisit this

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet

A: A very nice dark brown that shows a bit of amber when put up to the light. It is barely see through and almost opaque. The lacing is ok as well.

S: There is big sweet malty smell with a tinge of hops that come through to complement it. The hop smell is very piney and full of resin but barely comes through the sweet malt base.

T: The sweetness is masked very well and barely there. I get barely any malt, it is completely melded with the hops and is quite piney, a lot like an IPA. The closest IPA would either be a black or rye IPA. The aftertaste is a bit weird, it is bitter but like a messed up IPA aftertaste. You get the bitterness but there is something else there that makes it more pronounced and strong, but not in a good way.

M: The carbonation is quite minimal but you can feel a slight fuzziness throughout with only a touch of crispness as it touches your lips and at the finish.

O: It is a weird barleywine. It is heavily hopped and tastes like a weird IPA, but the barleywine comes through a little bit and kind of ruins it. The malty sweetness backbone tastes really odd and kind of ruins it. I would say it tastes like a bad Bigfoot. The aftertaste is no good.

4.39/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured a DARK red wine color accompanied by a creamy brown head that left such a beautiful, fine lace.

Smell: A grainy/biscuity smell comes through with strong malt aromas. Also, a delicately sweet, fruity wine floats in the scent.

Taste: The beginning opens up with some sweet fruit and nut flavors; the middle drags the flavor down into a bitter range, bringing out more of the hops but still balanced with some tasty malt flavors; the end finishes with a strong bitterness along with hints of toffee, coffee, and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: It was almost chewy. Excellent carbonation, just enough, sparse. It was creamy overall and left a very nice heat after a half minute on a sip.

Overall: I celebrate the anniversary of Uinta by letting them know this was a spot on brew. I'm not even finished with it and I feel a bit toasty. After trying this and Stone's barley wine brew, I have discovered that I'm fond of this style; complexly flavored and unique. Cheers.

Got a 4-pack of this recently at Ayotte's ($9.99). Have opted to quaff a bottle or 2 today out in the 'Zebo....

Into a small tulip, it is a fairly clear brew. Color is a deep chestnut, with a short, rocky, tannish-hued head. Carbo is sparse, but the lacing is decent. The nose has some burnt caramel and a bit of florality; more malty than hoppy. Body is a basic medium, with a fairly smooth feel.

Flavor has more caramel, with some more burnt, caramelized notes. A touch of molasses plus a hint of dark fruit mix together. The finish is a tad dry, and the floral hop aspect is more noticeable at this juncture. Reminds me of a solid English style BW, perhaps like Victory Old Ho... Prosit!!

One bottle, given to me from my good friend in Denver!

Pours a nice dirty brown/crimson. Quickly dissipating head, doesn't really seem oily or hugely viscous... but is noticeably fairly thick.

Smells strongly of piney hops. Earthy malts, a tad sweet and a tad boozey. Maybe a very small hint of burnt caramel undertone.

Taste rushes in with a lot of earthiness and booze. There is a pleasant sweetness that is just a bit sticky. Small amount of that burnt caramel taste. There is like a toasty, nuttiness to it... like strongly toasted almonds. The beer creeps away into the piney/herbal hops that have a nice subtle bitterness that lingers. It's noticeably hoppy, but doesn't cut your tongue out like Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada.

Mouthfeel, medium to heavy I would say. The grainy carbonation helps lighten it and is really well done. It remains drinkable, it has some dryness, it has a great carbonation for the style. Just all around perfected for this kind of beer. Slightly tacky/sticky. All is where it should be I feel on the mouthfeel.

Overall, I really enjoyed this. I am not a big hop fan but this is definitely one of the better hoppy barley wines I have had. Bigfoot is almost too aggressive... Nogne #100 is is hopped to the point it doesn't even seem like a barley wine anymore. But this grapples it in and fits the American bill on the style.
