Unita Brewing Company Anniversary Barley Wine Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Unita Brewing Company Anniversary Barley Wine Ale. I picked up this bottle at Plaza Bottle Shop in San Leandro (here).
From the Unita Brewing Company website: “Rich and complex, this all malt barley wine exhibits hints of dried fruits, toffee and caramel balanced by an abundance of American hops.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany brown with a nice tight off-white head and splotchy lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, roasted and caramel malts, dark fruit, toffee and spicy hops.
Taste: Caramel, sweet and roasted malts, dried dark fruits, toffee, brown sugar and a spicy hop bitterness in the finish.
Overall: Smooth and delicious, Unita Brewing Company Anniversary Barley Wine Ale is very nice. This impressive 10.4% ABV offering is certainly worth picking up. I plan to do so again (and again).
