sfontain (834) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Translucent black; one-finger light tan head dissipates into a medium ring. Aroma malt, nutty, a little sour, toasty, light roast and very light smoke. Flavor malty, toasty, dry finish. Medium body, lighter carbonation but pretty smooth in that department. Not my style but good for what it is.

Bottle. Pours black with white head and lacing. Nose and taste is coffee and caramel. Dry aftertaste. Nice.

Darwenus (634) - Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2015
I’m not wild about black lager and I haven’t enjoyed much organic beer, so I didn’t have high hopes for Uinta’s Baba Organic Black Lager. But Uinta is a brewer that generally pleases me more than not, so I gave gave this a try. I liked it. It pours thin with a trace of head, the aroma is a burnt malt with a charcoal character, maybe a little hop tingle in the background. The flavor was stronger than I’d expected, and slightly sweet. Something here reminded me of Dr. Pepper and coffee. Nice.

Röstiger Geruch. Wässriger Geschmack. Irgendwie langweilig. Keine Fehler, aber oberlahm.

Geruch leicht bauchig, Geschmack ist dann aber völlig in Ordnung, rauchig, schokoladig.

DMLINAZ (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2015
I’m liking this one more and more each time. Clearly the best of a Uinta variety pack (over the Hazel amber and the Wyld Extra Pale Ale). Smooth like a lager but fuller bodied. Aroma is moderate but flavor is pronounced; I get some roasted malts, licorice, some coffee.

ryanfolty (2050) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2015
May 25, 2015 - dark brown pour with nice amount of head and lacing. Aroma and taste of grain, hops, chocolate and coffee. Doesn’t happen often, but taste was better than aroma.

Pyobon (1085) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2015
(Bottle) Black with ruby hints and good off-white head. Subtle, slightly smokey aroma. Smooth with excellent carbonation both silky and bright. Great taste. A nice balance of rich dark flavours which are not laid on too heavily making it easy to drink whilst tasty. There’s some dark treacle, a little smokiness and some gentle bitterness in finish. Very pleasant. Easy drinking and interesting.

bartzluke (269) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2015
6 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Black and opaque with a moderate white head. Light bodied for a dark beer. A bit watery and fairly dry. Cereal, some toffee, a little smoke. Not bad, but not my thing. Much more taste than the abv would have suggested though.

swesson (290) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2015
From a bottle at Carmine's. Poured a blackish brown and made a nice light brown head with good lacing. Smells of cocoa and malt and coffee. Tastes of chocolate and malt and dark fruits. More like a porter than a black lager. Flavored were much more complex than I would have expected from a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
