2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sam Adams Boston glass from bottle. A: slight sweetness and slight coffee. App: extremely dark, ruby red. With a half finger ever-so-slightly, tan head. T: relatively light compared to the color. Front has mild roastyness. Back is a stronger roastyness. P: medium bubbles, very light, and smooth, lasting aftertaste of roast. Go for Kostritzer for a much better swartzbier!

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
