NachlamSie (3386) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2014
6 pack of cans best before August 24, 2014. Pours a nice deep, dark hue. Pitch black is obviously an exaggeration, but its well within style. This smells like its gonna be a solid shwarzbier. Its roasty, a little nutty with mild hints at toffee and latte and a nice crispness. The mouthfeel is lighter, but Baba is still complex and flavorful. Uinta has a knack for making these 4% abv beers really satisfying. The flavor is nutty, with hints at cacao, instant coffee, wafers, toffee and an earthy, but milky finish. I poured this guy into a goblet for a better tasting experience, but I totally want to put a coozie on one of these bad boys and sip it on a warm spring day. Very drinkable, very clean. The only shortcoming here at all is that after a full glass, it does seem a little waterier than a top notch black lager. Still, theyve done a stand up job with this to comply with the crazy Utah laws.

Turboninja (685) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2017
[email protected]Haras, Tampere, Finland. Bitter, though slightly sweet aroma with berries and some coffee. Dark mahogny color with small light beige head and clear liquid. Medium, averagely balanced taste with lightly roasted malts, some butter cookies, dark chocolate. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with slightly bitter malts. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, quite tasty for percentage, especially the buttery flavor.

FatPhil (15150) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (Pien, Helsinki)
Pleasant sweetish roasty aroma, a bit of burnt toast, but saying more dunkel than schwarz. Dar red, brief tan head. Thinnish palate, some burnt dryness. Some lactic aspect, also some hop pungency, but these things are fleet, and non-reproduceable. Bit messy. Dullish cerne, Id prefer almost any czech one, but certainly drinkable. (And now I imagine Beer House Dunkles, from just round the corner, which nukes even the czech ones off the map.)

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown, chestnut color. Medium size, beige-brownish head, stays. Nutty, sweet, roast, caramel, bit buttery in aroma. Roast, old wet carpet, nutty, husky, grainy in taste. Sharp, large bubble type of carbonation. Nutty, barley roast in aftertaste. Oily / buttery mouthfeel. Solid brew.

ThirstyBird (2778) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2016
Can from my old buddy Brian. Pours a super dark cola color with a tan head. The smell is roasted dark malt, some molasses, coffee. The taste is as it smells with some dark fruit lingering as well then a dry roasty ending. The body is light with about average carbonation. Pretty decent overall and at 4% its a sessionable.

Not a big fan of dark beers. But this one was very drinkable. Lots of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking. Would recommend.
