Subtle hop aroma. Little too alcoholic in taste. Not a bad black IPA, but not the best

Black with brown head from a 12 oz bottle. Smokey and hoppy aroma simultaneously. Taste is as it smells, powerful hops, strong flavor, a great IPA

This was my introduction to Uinta and I’m anxious to try more. An imperial black ipa already has me highly interested, and Dubhe followed through to meet all my expectations. Big, smooth, potent and hoppy flavor, all the things you like in nontraditional brews.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is good good stuff. Aroma is nearly perfect for a black IPA. hops all over the nose, spice, pine, juniper, lemon rind. Appearance is pitch black with a thin brown head. Taste is Big roasty chocolate kisses backed by a nice smooth hop bitterness like a smooth floral dark chocolate. Palate is super thick and chewy, my favorite for this style. I’ve had the stone versions and this palate is superior. Overall I will be seeking this out again for sure. I am continually impressed with Uinta. A damned fine brew.

Pours black with a tan head that clings nicely to the glass. Hop aroma is good but not strong. Over the lips and the hop flavor is intense, biting! Minor notes of chocolate are to be found. The aftertaste is bitter and well suited for this beer!
Glad I had my blood work done this morning! Gimme another!

Bottle. Colour... very dark brown with a thick off-white head. Nose... sticky sweet hops and plenty of booze. Palate... a quick, sharp bite of hops and licorice root is followed closely by a dark malt character and a bitter yet sweet booziness that carries on into the finish.

Nice lingering bitterness. Black but not jet black. Poured with good head off tap. ABV is hidden. Well made and certainly an addition to the style.

Ruby brown with a dense tan head. Aroma is grapefruit and malt, with both edgier in the taste in terms of bitterness, and relatively mild roast comes in at the finish. $2/12oz

On tap at Wankers Corner. Big malt and hop flavors that did not quite mesh. Some bitterness throughout but not enough to call it an IPA. A bit thin. Roasted and chocolate flavors reminded me more of a stout. A good enough brew, just not the India Dark Ale I was looking for.
