drank on 3.11.09 at home.

pours a hazy brownish color with red tints, very little head, minimal lacing. decent malty nose, a bit spicey as well, slight hop aroma as well.

decent barleywine taste, big malty base with a big hopyy bitterness, alcohol is a bit hidden, good smooth taste. mouthfeel is a little puckery and pasty in the mouth, phlegmy.

Bottle shared at a tasting by zymrgy. Thanks for the opportunity to try a Utah beer.
I wasn't expecting much from this. Utah isn't really know for their craft beer.
Anyway, a 1 finger head color is brownish amber. Smell is very citrusy, some oak, brown sugar , malty.
Taste. good bitterness for a barleywine. Not cloying at all. Malty, some vanilla.
Mouthfeel: pretty light for a barleywine, although it's enjoyable.
Drinkability: A very drinkable barleywine if you like American Barleywine style. This compares favorably with the best examples of the style .

Says,"earh, wind, and beer" under the cap. I'm not sure if that's a Earth Wind and Fire or Captain Planet referance.

Pours a dark caramel color with ruby highlights. Medium beige head with good retention and minimal lace.

Smells fo sugary caramel, milk chocolate and pine and citrus hops. I also got a few whiffs of defrosted refrigerator.

Creamy caramel briefly interrupted by bitter hops before mellowing into alcoholic pine and earth hops. Mild pepper with swallow. Fusel alcohol increases as it warms. Mouthfeel is chunky albiet solvent-like. I would have liked to have seen the citrus hop carried over from smell to flavor.

This bottle courtasy of Wasatch. Thanks John!

2008 brown stuby bottle served at 45 degrees. Poured into an oversized snifter. This is probably the darkest barley wine I've seen. Its a pale dark brown with some golden murky brown glowing when held to light. No transparency. A nice off white 1 finger head forms off a semi-rigerous pour. Leaving the smallest spotty lace traceage. A little ring around the collar of bubbles and that is it for head.

The aroma is fairly sweet with unfermented brown sugar, beady sweet caramel rolls, a touch of citrussy hops and a little bit of orange juice like aroma. No hotness or any detection of alcahol at the knose. Its quite the floral hoppy pleaser, nice and inviteing sweetness.

The taste is holding some warm alcahol solvent flavors, and loads of sweet buttery bread flavors, more caramel and a nice bottled water like Affina pure water flavor. Some peppercorn taste just before the swallow. A nice bite of hops into the swallow with pine and citrussy orange peel. No zesty rind resemblence, its all fruit.
Mouthfeel is pretty thin, only gaining a little bit of creamyness from the carbonation. There is some syrupy like slickness at the swallow.
Even with that touch of solvent up front, its still a terrific beer.

Hops, bready yeast, sweet unfermented sugars and a good finish. Gotta try it atleast once.

Mahogany with 2 finger head and heavy lacing.

Burnt caramel malty sweetness with strong hoppy finish, alcohol is very well hidden in the nose.

A burnt malty sweet flavor balanced quite well by copious hopping. A little more depth would have been nice, perhaps age will meld the flavors.

A lingering bitter smoke with a big body. Still very crisp and clean despite high gravity. Excellent.

Hoppy balance makes this beer very sessionable for an American Barleywine. Definitely worth a shot overall, good brew.

12oz bottle at 52 degrees. Vintage 2008 and courtesy BA jdmek9..Thanks!

Pours sparkling ruby with a half inch beige, dense head. A slow settling of the head revealed a solid skim coat on the surface along with plenty of torn and solid lacing. A real beaut.

Aromatics lead off with a heavy dose of juicy malt, ripe fruit, and citrusy hops. Fresh figs, toffee, plums, spruce, and lush malt.
Fresh and lively.

On the full side of medium bodied with a creamy, tacky, and sticky mouthfeel. A bit chewy.

Plump, fresh malt, caramel, dark fruits, and warming alcohol start the palate. Raisins, ripe figs, and pine bark follow through. A solid but smooth bitterness sustains throughout.

Finishes with a lingering, earthy hop bite, piney undertones, and warming alcohol.

Damn tasty Barleywine. Great balance but still heavy on the hops. The alcohol is warming but not overbearing. Lucky to try such a fresh example.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with 09/08 bottled on date into an Ommegang chalice.

A--Dark ruby with chestnut browns in it. Almost no head, maybe a quarter-inch of white foam that dies almost immediately to a ring with minimal soapy dots on the glass. A finger swish brings it to life pretty easily, though.

S--Lots of Cascade hops, which to me means pine and floral, specifically rosewater type scents. This is actually a little annoying to me, not because I don't like hops, but because I expect at least some of the cloying malt to peep through on the nose. If you dig on this one and really open up the hoover nostrils you can maybe find some chicory buried in there along with a hint of almonds. But that's really pushing it.

T--Same deal as the nose. The hops are the highlight, and while I got no beef with the ingredient, I don't really need a 10 percent version of Liberty Ale. Oh well. There is a mellow pleasant alcohol warmth that makes barleywines special, and again, if you go looking for it and wait until the initial piney and floral character of the hops dies but pay attention before the resinous bitterness parches out the finish--you've got about a half second window here--then you catch a decent glimpse of more roasty nuttiness of almonds, decent chicory bitterness, and a more fully developed marriage between honeyed sweet malt and rosy hops. This is all begging to make its way to the forefront but gets squashed.

M&D--Both are fine. I think the mouthfeel may be the strongest part of this beer, as it's not heavy or fizzy, but mildly smooth and round. Drinkability would be higher but I'm not that much of a hophead.

I've never had Bigfoot, but if it's this hoppy I'm gonna be in trouble...

This brew pours a beautiful deep red with no head. A sweet smell emanates of chicory and raisins, and the taste matches, with a dry, hoppy flavor that coats the mouth and lingers. The hoppiness and heat of the alcohol takes over the mouthfeel with a bit of boldness. Nice for savoring, but it doesn't have the advantage of other barleywines in having different tones and flavors open up as the brew adjusts to room temperature. Thus, you get a straightforward brew instead of one that changes.

Currently, I am listening to Bach's Mass in B minor and sipping this liquid warmth out of a tulip glass. Bottled on 5/16/08.

A: The color is a rich and deep mahogany with blood red highlights when held up to the light. The head formation was decent, and it looks like this one will stick all over the glass. Nice carbonation!

S: Smells like a generously hopped barleywine...American west coast hops are evident. Notes of honey, maple, tea leaves, toasted oats, cherries, nougat and subtle hints of ripened banana.

T: Very well balanced! The big malty backbone that defines barleywine is met with a meaty thud of hop bitterness. Nothing sharp about this beer. I think this might be best described as a soft and rounded beer. Quite inoffensive, and yet delicious. Notes of honey and grapefruit coat the tongue.

M: The bitter hop character is carried to the roof of the mouth by the pressing carbonation, preventing the rounded balance of this beer from becoming too one-dimensional. Alcohol sort of numbs the tongue. Or is that the hops taking their toll?

D: I have to give this beer the highest rating for its drinkability. The brewers at Uinta have really made an excellent American barleywine without going over the top in either the hops or malt categories. In the right situation, like when you are trying to stay warm in your under-heated apartment, or trying to relax while listening to some great music, this beer is just the right sipper.

12 ounce bottle purchased from Stuffed Sandwich about a year ago, 10th Anniversary from 2003, have also had a very fresh bottle of this in the past, prefer it with some age behind it, consumed 1/9/09, reviewed from notes, poured into my Three Philosophers glass, color is a dark amber with a one inch off white creamy head, great carbonation for being around five years old, decent retention and light lacing, aroma is lots of bread, big caramel scent, toffee, booze, brown sugar, oranges, berries, and light milk chocolate, taste is dry at first with bread and citrus in the middle, finish is slightly warming and a little bitter, gets sweeter as time goes on, more fruit comes out along with pronounced malt, mouthfeel is sweet, dry, and hot, medium bodied, good carbonation like mentioned above, taste lingers well even for the style, could drink a few of these, alcohol could hidden better and that is my only real complaint about the drinkability, pretty smooth otherwise, only beer I have had from this brewery but it sure is a good one, a little expensive but worth it, would like to drink again, recommended

12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a DEEP clear amber that appears almost black at times until you hold it up to the light. A thin layer of tan head sits on top, retaining around the edges and leaving a solid cascade of spotty lacing when swirled. The aroma is big with oats and grains, as well as some sticky smelling notes of caramel and maple syrup. Deep citrus tang also emerges, as does spice, floral character, and some hoppy resinous notes. Nice Barleywine aroma.

The taste once again is led by that big malt backbone. Burnt grains, chocolate and caramel malts, maybe even a little bit of dark fruit in there. Luckily, there is some equally big hop character here, with sticky, resinous bitterness evening all of that chewy sweetness out. The mouthfeel is full bodied and beefy feeling, with a lower carbonation that really makes those big malts comes out. Alcohol is very nicely hid for the size. I'm getting some gentle warmth but that's about it. Nice.

Good American Barleywine here with some nice robust character and extremely good drinkibility. A solid warm up on a chiller February evening. I dug it.

Thanks to Colts9016 for this bottle.

12-oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A = Pours a clear red, dark amber with a one inch tan head consisting of foam and medium bubbles in equal measure, fair retention, leaves light lacing.

S = Smells of sweet-tart candies, light syrup (not exactly maple, though maybe ample with vanilla added or something), fresh cut wheat, light floral hints, sweet iced tea. Quite good, well balanced smells.

T = Good malt forward tastes of maple syrup, light oak, bitterness is present as a balancing feature but not overpowering like oversteeped black tea or a dark oolong, very light hints of vanilla beans, pie crust, almond, manzanilla sherry. Quite complex and well balanced.

M = Medium bodied, good mouthcoating, very nice level of carbonation feeling. Maybe a little too light bodied.

D = A good sipping beer, goes down easily.

A:Poured a very deep ruby color with some white head that quickly retreated to the rim of the snifter.

S: Nice big hop nose up front with some citrus notes. Big malt backbone is there as well. Very nice American barleywine nose. Nice touch of caramel as well.

T: Sticky hops right up front with a nice sweetness from all the malt. The hops are on the piny side. Only a slight hint of the ABV when it warms. Not that complex at all but enjoyable to drink.

M: Nice medium sticky mouthfeel.

D: A boringly good barleywine. It really does not have anything that stands out to make it remarkable. That being said it is easy drinking for the style and ABV. Glad I got to try a big beer made in Utah.

12 oz. bottle. XV anniversary edition.

Pours a slightly cloudy mahogany brown with nary a head. No lacing on the glass.

Big, rich caramel malt aroma. Slightly sweet and fruity, with a trace of herbal hops. Becomes boozy as it warms.

Caramel malty upfront quickly followed by an aggressive hop bitterness that nicely balances the malt. It unexpectedly ends on the dry side, with a rather bland, flat finish.

Full body, mild carbonation.

Decent and servicable barleywine, which was enjoyable to drink. But, in the end it doesn't quite stack up against the best in the style.

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.

I had recieved this one as an extra from a kind trader before I realzed we now carry this locally. No matter though it was a solid beer all around. Used this one as a nightcap and served it at cellar temp. Consumed on 01/17/2009.

The pour was nice. Rich caramel in color with light reddish tints to it. Small head of white rises up from the bottom to cap off the top of it rather nicely, no active carbonation that I could see either.

The aroma was very sweet, with lots of carmael and hints of bready malts. SOme light diffused hoppiness in it as well, but nothing that was terribly overpowering. Light alcohol notes were hiding underneath as well. The flavor was more of the same, light alcohol, some light piney hops and a touch of carmel and toffee. Nothing really huge here at all, but on the same token nothing really bad either. Smooth, mellow carbonation and a full body, this was a very nice above average barley wine.

Overall while I have certainly had better, I have certainly had worse as well. I would have no problem at all with putting a couple bottles down in the cellar, and at 2 bucks a bottle not bad at all.

XVth Anniversary, bottle from Bruisin' Ales, Asheville, NC. Poured into an Allagash cervoise.

Appearance: Pours a relatively dark, brownish body with lighter, dull ruby hues. The head, tan and about one-finger tall, fades relatively quickly, and though it does leave some lacing, it's runny, glittery, moist, and blotchy. I was more impressed when I began, but its impressiveness fades.

Aroma: Relatively faint, though pleasant. Dark pine, spicy and herbal, mixed with estery alcohol, brown sugar and molasses

Taste: Very similar to the nose. That is, it's pretty simplistic, with pine notes, dark malts, half toasted/half roasted, with overtones of caramel and molasses, a few lighter fruity esters that come across as apple skin like, and some mildly spicy, estery alcohol. Not too terribly much to write about - it's not bad, but it's not great either.

Mouthfeel: Relatively thick, with minimal carbonation, and a slight alcohol prickle that melds well with the pine spiciness. About what you'd expect from an American barleywine, really.

Drinkability: Something was just a little lacking with this one - maybe the hop schedule, maybe the malt bill, I'm not sure. It was just a little weak in all departments, I suppose. It's still a solid beer though, just not all that it could probably be.

Pours clear deep amber with thin dark tan head. The aroma is sweet sticky crystal malts mixed with citrus and pine hops and not much else. The taste starts pine hop bitterness that becomes piney, dark fruitiness from dates, raisins and prunes and even some more fruitiness with cherry notes. Nice tasting American style barleywine. It seems to have a smooth balance between dark fruitiness and pine hops with a background of mild malt sweetness.

Anniversary X - Bottled 2003

I have had this beer cellared for over 4 years now and decided that New Years Eve 2008/2009 would be just as good of time as any. I picked this up in Park City over labor day in 2004. This poured a very deep, burnished ruby color with 1 finger head that turned to a whispy film. The aroma on this is quite complex and deep on this well-aged barleywine. Massive toffee and butterscotch notes mesh with a dose of spices and grassy floral hops. A slight trace of diacytel is found, but with a twist-off bottle, it is to be expected after this long. The deep aromas are almost port-like in nature. The taste is fully layered with huge maltiness and subdued hop bitterness. The body is full, yet thinned by the carbonation. The balance has definitely improved since I first sampled this in 04 but still seems as though it would cellar well for many more years. I was glad to bring this out on such an occasion, but sad to see gone. A lot has happened in the times since I first purchased this in a basement alley liquor store in Park City. Have a safe and happy new year ahead!

XV bottled on 9/29/08 by way of superdave70.

pours nearly the same color as the bottle... woody brown with coppery hues. it has a minimal tannish off white head and some light spotty lacing.

the aroma is a touch resinous and hoppy along with caramel, grass, earthy spices and citrus (grapefruit and orange) in the background.

the flavor is similar... along with some floral qualities. the sweetness is subdued and there is a mildly bittered spicy finish. medium bodied with fine soft carbonation. bitterness and hoppy dryness keep it from becoming sticky. a BW i actually can drink without cringing... impressive.

incredibly well balanced, controlled and insanely drinkable if i didn't have to go to work...

Bottled 9/28/08. Pours a clear dark amber-copper color creating a thin, but tight, creamy head. Exits the bottle thick and viscous. Dominant aromas of caramel candies, toasted malts and dark brown sugar are initially noted. Although described on the label as a malty barleywine a substantial amount of citrusy and piney hop aromas make their way through in the background. Some faint distracting and somewhat unwanted aromatic medicinal and oxidation notes are noted also. For such a young bottle this is quite unusual. Palate is slick, full and oily with a very fine carbonation level. Great mouthfeel for a high ABV beer. Flavors start out on the malty side with assertive notes of burnt caramel candies, toasted malts, brown sugar, dark dried fruits and a touch of sherry. A nice balance of moderately bitter pine and grapefruit rind hop flavors slide in at the finish to cut through the sweetness. Overall a pleasant, full bodied warm sipper; perfect for a chilly winter night. At $9.99 per sixer a great value also.

14th Anniversary (2nd bottling)
BOTTLED ON: 1/14/08
CONSUMED: 12/19/08

Appearance: Deep garnet body with good clarity and a butter toffee head. Good retention and an impressive amount of lacing caked all over the sides of the glass.

Smell: Some caramel and toffee malt notes with a spicy peppery hop infusion.

Taste: I'm loving the blend of the spicy hops with the caramel and toffee malt. I think I really caught this one at a good time. The hops are softened yet bitter when playing off the malt. The alcohol has really mellowed out too, being 95% concealed which is impressive for a 10.2% brew.

Mouthfeel: A bit slick yet a touch chewy! Medium full body with a surprising amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Easy to down it for a 10.2% brew but it packs a wallop so you really shouldn't have too many.

This barley wine really retained a strong spicy hop profile even after nearly a year of age on it. I'm glad I let it age and would love to get my hands on a few more of these for the cellar.

A: Poured a dark and hazy apple coloring with supporting orange hues with a quickly dissipating fizzy head.

S: a darken but sweet caramel with an apple fruitiness and dark molassess. Noticeable alcohol fusels were present but in a very pleasant and perfumy nature. Some fresh dark ripe fruit (spicy rum raisin) complimentst and completes this fine aroma.

T: The flavor was dark, dry caramel and molasses with some spicy alcohol fusels first greeting the tongue. Some dark fruit and a dry whiskey barrel woodiness soon follows. The bitterness was dry, and earthy combined with a dry alcohol fade that rounded things out. The abv of 10.0% was noticeable at times, but never overbearing, being dry and warm with a beautiful lingering fade.

M: full bodied, smooth and eloquent on the tongue. Hardly a trace of carbonation was to be found while it left a sligthy malty residue coating behind along with a dry alcohol laced presence.

D: Nice drinkability overall per style. Big and worthy of an special anniversary labeling. A nice warm slow sipper that progressively gets better as you go along.Worthy of a recommend and very smooth and easy to drink despite its high abv nature.
