Poured from draft into a tall Uinta glass at Mead Hall. Deep dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Full of all kinds of delicious flavors, most noticable is the chocolate and bourbon notes but there are others in there as well. Licorice. Smoke. Dark fruits. This stuff is excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of strong oak, vanilla, cocoa and espresso. Pours black with an out of control head. Taste is waaaaay too oaky. The vanilla and coffee are there but I feel like Iím sucking it out of wood chips.

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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.75 A: Black color. Three fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is pretty good and a few whisps of lacing are left.
5.0 S: This has a world class nose. Powerful, complex, and well integrated. Moderate roastiness, but overall is quite sweet. Tons of tangy molasses with layers of chocolate and caramel. Hints of coffee and fig. I didnít list a lot of descriptors, but what I did list runs deep.
4.25 T: The taste is very good, but canít compare with the nose. Layers of chocolate and caramel, moderate roastiness. Fig and maybe some currant and prune fruitiness. Like the nose, molasses is the focus.
4.5 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Creamy with a slippery velvet texture. Super smooth.
4.5 D: Really great brew. Buy it for the taste, love it for the nose. This reminds me a good deal of Marshal Zhukov, which I adore.
