3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip at Public House in the Venetian. Pours a deep, opaque brown but I’m seeing amber spots where light hits it, so it’s not totally black. Small beige head. Aroma of citrusy hops, chocolate, pine resin, and cream- a little restrained for an imperial but balanced and smooth. Flavor of piney and citrusy hops, caramel and chocolate malts, tobacco, grapefruit peel- has the bitterness the aroma subdues. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, resinous mouthfeel.

A dark beer bursting with a variety of hops. A bit of a sharp flavor and a lingering aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours dark, dark brown, nearly black with thick tan lacing. Big dark chocolate aroma with a coffee note. Palate is big, and round with heavy malts on the mid-palate and a bitter coffee finish. Very bold; sticks with you.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Dubhe is wonderful. Has a heavy citrus aroma and is black as oil. Incredibly smooth and no alcohol detected. Hoppy, funky citrus up front and finishes smoothly into a dark chocolate roasted sweet hemp seed taste that carries deep. This shit is up there on my list.

Pours dark with a coffee colored head. Has a roasted malt coffee taste to it. I didn’t really detect the typical IPA presence in this one but very good nonetheless. Has a creamy mouthfeel.

A real good beer. Like a hoppy guinness. Good body, head, and lacing. Thick and black like a negro beer ought to be brewed. Even good at room temperature. Does not lose it’s class. The best Uinta has to offer in my opinion. Dig the hemp seed. Recommened to all. Good drinking!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Thick light brown head. Clear dark red color. Big hoppy and grassy aroma. Big assulting bitterness toghether with both much dark roasted malts and hop tastes. This is an full attack on your taste buds. No balancing sweetness and a medium body gives a unbalanced beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
About a 1 inch thick head of fine and dense bubbles. Awesome aroma with loads of citrusy hops, some pineapple and a hint of rubber upon a deep exhale. Very dark crimson brown in color. The body is kind of lifeless in the mouth. Thick and heavy and oily. Lots more citrusy flavors along with some roasted grains and herbals hops flavors. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Not sure about this one. Just seems like a lack of carbonation and mouthfeel hurt this brew considerably. Maybe just an imperfect bottle.
