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.

Overpriced bottle at Freakin Frog. Slight chocolate to this porter. But aroma doesn’t give off chocolate so much as something else. Slight roast. Creamy.

On tap at Mekong. Poured black with a good very light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, faint bourbon. Flavor is chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and more woodsy bourbon notes. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. Nicely done baltic porter, and the bourbon aging gives it an interesting twist. Quite good.

Bottle sample at the Uinta tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/7/13. Darkest brown in color with a thick tan head. Aroma of brownies, roast and oak. Malty, chocolatey and roasty flavor with a bit of sourness before a roasty finish.
