3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Really a nice bourbon, vanilla oaky, light coconut, sweet dark chocolate aroma. Initially, there’s some fruity notes that are then surpassed by dark chocolate, roasty malts, mild bourbon, light woody flavor with a bit sweet, chocolate finish. The bourbon is tame but nice. One of my favorite offerings from Uinta thus far.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle in snifter. Pours pitch black with a 1 finger tan mocha head which dissipates to a nice cap. Aroma was fairly strong with notes of vanilla, oak, brown sugar and chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, roasted malts and milk chocolate are at the front and are followed by an earthy vanilla caramel flavor. Hop presence is noticeable at the end also along with a slight alcohol bite. Creamy beer, medium body and light to medium carbonation with tight bubbles. A really enjoyable Baltic Porter, one of the best I have had, well balanced with great flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, dark chocolate and woody bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted malt, bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy bourbon sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is the good brew.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another fabulous beer from Uinta in their Crooked Line series. Poured this one at a good temperature with an enormous, foamy, thick, creamy, fluffy, tan head that settles so slowly and good lacing. Color is a barely translucent black brown. Aroma is a nice blend of roast, malt, cocoa, old leather, a small amounts of coffee, dark ripe fruit, tree bark, earth. Body is excellent but carbonation is a bit soft. Finish is like flavor, slightly boozy, easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ The Ale House in Amesbury. Pitch black with lasting tan head that laced the tulip until finish. Aroma is chocolate, oak and light coffee. Taste is chocolate, vanilla and mild espresso notes. The oak is very light and subtle in this brew. Hints of molasses and sugar. Some burnt malts. Body is more on the full side with a drier smooth semi-sweet finish. It’s really good. Just falls short of being great. Well worth a try if you ask me. I would order this again in certain circumstances.
