Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: June 4, 2013
Consumed: June 5, 2013
Misc.: Best before Oct. 17, 2013
Poured a very dark reddish brown, practically black color with two fingers of tan head. Very good thick and foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention all the way down.
Smelled chocolate, bitter coffee beans, caramel, toffee, roasty nuts and chocolate milk with a touch of skunkiness.
Tasted not quite as good as the smell, but good nonetheless. Tasted smoky woodfire, bitter coffee, chocolate, caramel, toffee and roasty nuts. Was hoping for a bit more here, but was left disappointed.
Medium-to-full body. Creamy slick texture. Average carbonation. Bitter abrupt finish. Feels a bit stronger than 4.00 percent.
Another good beer from Uinta. I’m pretty sure everything they make is above average. I’d try this again.

Pours nearly black, rubied.....with a huge, cascading dark tan head.
Aroma is malt, cola, smoky dark chocolate.
Flavour is chocolate, roast, malt.............
Needs more muscle, overall, but very tasty, just a wee bit too light and mild.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with quickly settling white head. Aroma is rasted, mildly burnt, with a malty bread background. Flavor is malty, mildly roasted up front with a caramel/toffee finish. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. An interesting dark lager, first I’ve reviewed of this style. Appreciate this beer a lot more than when I first tried it several years ago.

Draft sample at Wigwam beer fest. Very tasty schwarzbier that was actually refreshing on a warm day in Phoenix. Nice roasty notes but it maintained a lighter mouthfeel too. Very sessionable at 4BV too. I always appreciate well made lager.

355 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours dark wooden brown, almost black, with a rather small frothy brownish beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, tiny sour and malty with dark bread, bread spices, lemon zest, overripe mango, cereal, roasted malts, liquorice root, burnt cookies and hints of lemon essence and laundry detergent. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with dark bread, lemon zest, cereal, roasted malts, biscuits, liquorice root, caraway, black tea, charred wood and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with dark bread, roasted malts, liquorice root, lemon zest, wood and burnt cookies. nicely drinkable.

Bottle share from Jim thanks! Pours a clear black brown with a slight head. Not much in the scent department but I do get smoke and chocolate malts. Taste is unexpectedly refreshing... Smokey and light chocolate malts. Like a lite porter.
