3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PPD a while back, pours a deep brown with some creamy, off white head. Nose has quite a bit of caramel and brown sugar, some vanilla, molasses, burnt toast, some dark fruit notes. Flavor has just the right amount of barrel, some char and light smoke, lots of crusty burnt toast, vanilla, caramel, some dark chocolate. Full bodied, but thankfully dry. Well made.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dirt-brown stream that lands opaque black in the glass with big, fluffy khaki head. Big, predominantly malty and cereal aroma. Some truffles, morels, slight chocolate, a little smoke. Rather full bodied palate for 8%, impressive balance and complexity. The finish falls slightly short, but very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled on nov 13 - 2013.
Aged in Bourbon Barrels for nearly 12 months and then bottled conditioned until today. ABV: 8%
Very dark brown beer with a huge three finger high, beigebrown head that leaves lacing on the glass.
Nose: Vanilla, oak, bourbon, coffee, whipped cream, honey, dark bread and roasted malt. Itís a complex, beatiful nose!
Taste: Coffee, roasted malt, smoke, bourbon, dried fruit, red berries, a hint of licorice, molasses, pine and caramel.
Body: Correct me if Iím wrong but I think a Baltic Porter should have almoust a "thin" body and thatís exacly what this beer has! Medium to light body with high carbonation. Beatiful complex texture. A little smokey feeling. Long, dry aftertaste with medium bitterness that works great with the sweet, malty taste. The ABV of 8% is very well hidden.
Beatiuful, outstanding beer! Iím absolutely in love!

Bottle aged from 11/12 bought in store. Hope it holds up fine. It did. Deep opaque brown pour with beige head. A complex, multi-faceted, fairly balanced high ABV beer. Notes of molasses, chocolate, coffee grounds, vanilla, bourbon and oak.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at 33 West. I didnít have high expectations as Uinta has been pretty mediocre for me in the past, but I wanted a stout/porter and this was the most interesting option on the menu. Anyway, dark pour with a small frothy head. Chalky, milky aroma. Rich cocoa and milk flavor. Not much bourbon at all (? Which isnít necessarily a bad thing). Mild fruitiness. Lots of coffee and roast. I liked it.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Very dark brown, small beige head. Vanilla and mud cake up front. Sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Chocolate, sugar and vanilla. Bitterish finish with some heat and plenty of sugar. Too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 9-14-2013 at Fort Wayne, IN RateBeer gathering (Corked and caged bottle and bottled on 11/27/2012). The appearance is a small head with a lengthy retention, opaque dark brown body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is lightly roasted, malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and some alcohol. The flavor is dark fruits, chocolate, malt, and alcohol. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A most quaffable sipping beer that would make for a good cold weather beer. It is a beer worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An opaque dark brown with a creamy well sustaining head with good lacing. Aroma is subdued with just a bit of chocolate and roast. Mild vanilla and a nice high quality chocolate in the taste. Some roasty notes along with some wood and a smokey character. Finishes with a combination of hoppy and roasty bitterness that sort of builds. Semi creamy mouthfeel with a medium body and low carbonation. Good flavor and easy drinking. Well made.
