Aroma is a little subtle, but rings of espresso and cacao. The malt is indeed black, rendering the beer a nearly opaque color in the glass. Despite the high caramelization in the malt, the beer finishes cleanly but gives you a moment to savor the work they put into it. Definitely a beer for those who like this style, but it will even appease those with preferences for something lighter.

12 oz. bottle poured into lager glass. Deep cola color with an adequate creamy off-white head that leaves decent lacing. Pleasant, slightly smoky aroma with some earthy hoppiness. Flavor is roasted malt and coffee with a short hoppy finish. Comes across as a bit thin, but I suppose that makes it more sessionable. Overall enjoyable, but not amazing.

Uinta Baba Black Lager is drinkable and sessionable. Moderate roasted aroma coming from a dark pour and a frothy head. Taste is mild chocolate and coffee notes mixed with malt with a clean finish. Baba Black has the richness of dark beers but the lightness and drinkability of a lager. Real nice!

12-oz can. Pours black with a dense and creamy light gray head that fades quickly. Nice roasty dark malt nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Big bodied for a schwarz. Nice roasty mid palate with a light dry finish. Pretty decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #1400ish. Aroma: Light/moderate roasted coffee with a kiss of chocolate; a little earthy hop character; some chalkiness lingers as well. Appearance: Completely pitch black pour with a towering mocha head that fades into a sticky, somewhat bubbly top. Flavor: Roasted coffee malts that fade into a chalky dryness; earthy hops are subtle and easy to miss, but are more apparent upon warming. A little chocolate accompanies the coffee, but is quickly an afterthought. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Nothing too wowing here, but solid all around.
