Tap. Pours a weak black with a flavor to match. It had a bit of roasted malt flavor, but it just tasted thin. Flavors that work well in an imperial stout don’t work in a watery beer like this.

czar (3807) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
pours clear medium dark brown reddish with a small creamy light beige-orange head, some retention and lacing. deep roasted malts, some burnt malts, chocolate, sprucey with a hint of pine and maple, but also herbal-grassy, chalky, dry molasses - bit of residual iron. moderate carbonation, light body - doesn’t feel too watery for its abv, balanced and dry herbal-grassy-spicy-peppery finish. shy lagering notes that lie underneath burnt notes. still nice.

On tap at Anthill Pub in Irvine, CA. Definitely black with a light tan head. Good carbonation keeps it feeling fuller than the thin body would indicate. Really nice dark roasted malt flavor with a light cocoa flavor. Leaves a dry slightly woody taste behind. Very nice, very sessionable.

Just good. No reason not to make this a goto front porch sitter. Its what shiner black tried to be.

jbruner (1998) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a translucent brownish black with fluffy tan head. Aroma is done dark roast with underlying soy and fruity lager esters. Taste is a hint sweeter with a dirty back end. Meh.

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Great embossed bottle and label - stellar cap. Aroma has two distinct personalities - freshly opened and then warmed. Freshly opened, the aroma is all about toasted soy, damp dog and slight roast. Warmed, the aroma is much sweeter, and the roast comes through more with slight creosote. Mouth and flavor are extremely smooth - mouthy, frothy, good roast, lightly sweet, only roast bittering. Fine-grained carbo. Pencil shavings and roast on the backend. Haven’t had anything from Uinta yet that I didn’t want another of. ABC, Betton.

onceblind (3675) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2014
Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted black malt with a dash of earthy cocoa. Light bodied brew with a flavor of dark chocolate, and earthy burnt roast. Dry and light and not my style.

hayduke (3164) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 15, 2014
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a dark brown almost black with a good sized tan head. Moderate lacing. Nose of burnt malt with a mix of grassy and citrus hops. Medium in body. Smooth lager style mouth feel. Flavor is chocolate, and some hops shows in the taste as well. The finish is an earthy burnt bitterness with residual citrus. Decent. More hops would help.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2014
Poured from bottle. Nice molasses and burnt malt aroma. Solid black with a bit of head. I taste chocolate and roasted malt with some lager hops. Low carbonation makes this ridiculously easy to drink. Good, but could use flavor and body.

Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a dark brown/almost black color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, and caramel. Taste is on the sweet side. Roasted malt, sugar, sweet chocolate, caramel, and smoke.
