TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
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.

12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a small, short lived, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, caramel and a slight hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate and a bitter coffee finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

weihenweizen (1630) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown squat bottle poured into a glass. Pours just translucent black with small beige head. Aroma is roasty, medium body, medium carbonation, and good really small bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, some herbal hops, and some dark chocolate. Pretty good Schwartz beer.

scarletfire65 (919) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Cola colored pour with a chunky, mocha head. Aroma is chocolate and funk. Very light bodied. Flavor is like a very light porter - woody, ash, smoke, stale coffee, and some red berries on the finish. Very clean finish, with mild hopping.

December 18th, 2012 - Uinta’s been making the rounds around Colorado, popping up most prominently in the "Build Your Own Six Pack" coolers. I tend to avoid these, because these mostly like methods by which to pad Ratebeer review counts, rather than expand my palate’s experience. But there’s also pleasure in trying out other breweries’ core lines - the Fat Tires and Boston Lagers across the United States. So, for this six-pack I chose to buff up on my Uinta brews, beginning with one sexily labeled beer I’ve generally heard good things about: the Baba Black Lager. The nose contains almond and toffee notes, with some of the body coming from what smells like crystal malt, and a sprinkling of flax - light and airy and clean. The taste is also mild, reminding me of an Irish stout without the dank grain taste of barley. The roasted malts is doing most of the work here, delivering what flavor it can on a clean light palate. The general impression is like a simpler, cleaner and less engaging Guinness, which is not my favorite style or approach, but a refreshing change of pace from San Diegan IPAs for sure.

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, earth and some funk. The taste was of roasted malts with coffee and chocolate notes and a little smokiness. Thanks Hayduke.

tom10101 (2662) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Can (12 oz). Black with a huge beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, fruity notes, toffee and light pine. Taste is soft with roasted malt, fruity notes, molasses, resinous notes and very light bitterness. Light/medium body. Medium carbonation. Smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good drinkability. Light, but quite tasty. Good balance! Nice product.

Dark cola colored beer with a white head. Aromas of peat and dark chocolate. Tastes of smoked malts, peat, some meaty flavors, earthy notes, and some dark chocolate. Bitter, smoky finish. Surprisingly smooth. This was great.
