Had quite awhile back, I guess I forgot to rate it. This is a thick beer with a nice roast and bite, and not too sweet. Really quite tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Charred oak, coffee, and prune nose, with an emphasis on the latter. Black, thin tan head. Prune and charred oak flavor, maybe some fudge. Medium bodied, smooth, and drinkable.Alcohol only noticeable on the back end and not excessive. No bourbon detected, which is a plus for me. Fairly simple, but solid.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a massive light beige rocky head of considerable longevity. Aroma is cold coffee, leather, licorice, hints of freshly cut grass, dark berries and pine. Taste is coffee, pine, licorice, leather and hints of dark malts, dark berries and milk chocolate. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. Although a bit off the regular style profile for a Baltic Porter as far as Iím concerned, a pleasant porter from Uinta all in all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle - $12.99 at Bullockís Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Bottled On: 11/21/12.
Appearance: Pours an onyx black body with an initially tall, tan head, though it collapses fairly soon.
Smell: Fudge, carob chips, flecks of charred malt. Then, some vanilla and oak from the barrel. Light, leafy touch from the hops. Hint of foiled dark fruits, a bit of musty, funkiness cut from razor thin sniffs of alcohol.
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, carob, and some slightly burnt malt hinting at espresso start. Medium-light sweetness. Slight, somewhat subtle vanilla and oaken elements from the barrel treatment. Thereís a very, very light but noticeable funkiness for me, giving it a faintly sourish backing. Soiled dark fruitiness. Mild hop character, very low bitterness. Warming, chary, chocolaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation, initially. Smooth, as it glides across the tongue, but thereís ample suds all the same (initially, at least).
Overall: A decent sipper. I think I like it. I think?
