3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby red, big nicotine coloured head with long retention. Aroma of fruit liqueur filled chocolate pralines. The taste is almost like an inverted chocolate praline, first comes the sweet slightly alcoholic fruity innards, then the bitter dark chocolate. After that the hops take over for a looong and very bitter finish with some roasted notes. Medium mouthfeel. The bitterness in the finish was a bit harsh for me and I think my bottle could have been fresher, but still a very rich and complex beer.

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 1 7 15. The pour is cola brown golden with a tan head. The aroma is roast, pine hop, resin and a soft vanilla. The taste is the roast malt up front, pine hop close behind, a touch of cocoa and a bit of soy. The palate is medium bodied, slick mouth feel and some heat in back. Solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nearly opaque dark reddish brown with a sizable light tan head. Aroma is a handful of hop cones. Taste is sweet roasted malt, molasses, burnt licorice and bitter dark roasted coffee beans. ABV goes unnoticed. Not the hop head I once was, but this is pretty easy drinking for 109 IBU.

Nice IPA with dark roasted malts. Good head retention and definitely a beer to be consumed after the chill of the refrigerator has worn off. Hops in this one muted in the background so the dark chocolate dominates but here are traces of the hop flavors showing here and there.

Surprisingly good beer. Dark hue. Lacy head. Hoppy and malty. The flavor seems roasted and a bit dank. But it is full-bodied so it supports the maltiness. I think if the abv was lower this beer would not work, but the booziness is what gives it its balance. Uinta can be hit or miss for me fortunately this beer is so good it makes up for their errors. Not a bad beer at all.

I like that the malt is so strong; the hops are there, but they get to share the taste sensation with the malt. Hard to believe its 270 calories though.
