4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black with a tan head. Aromas of iced coffee, chocolate, and crisp, clean lager yeast. Lots of roasted barley flavors with coffee and a hint of smoke. Medium-bodied with a clean finish.
The dark flavors don’t compromise the crisp characters of a schwarzbier. Really well done.

Pours a dark brown with mahogany highlights. Nice mix of dark malts and with a bitter finish. I think this is well made, but I didn’t really enjoy it.

12 oz. bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. It pours a dark cola brown color with a tan head. The aroma is pumpernickel bread with some coffee and smoke. The flavor is the same. LIght bodied with smoke, bread, coffee and light caramel. It has a bready, spicy bitter finish. Really tasty. Well done.

Bottle. Aroma roasted malts and small hint of chocolate. Taste is grainy. Roasted malts, chocolate, milk, caramel and some spice. Thin but good flavor. Smooth and light. Some cardboard taste at end. Overall decent.

Pretty solid black lager. Very malt forward with some light roast and hops present. Slightly dry with a little caramel as well. Pretty good version of a hardto nail style."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cola color with a thick beige head. Coffee nose. Seems sweet for a lager but good flavor with the coffee notes coming through and bitterness both from hops and malt. A bit chalky end but overall very good and by far my favorite from Uinta.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an espresso black with light, toffee colored head. Nose is caramel, light chocolate and malt. Enters with crispness into the palate where mild hops make their presence known alongside the more expected roasted malts.
Pleasing and clean with mild bitterness, not a favorite but tasty and interesting.
