drjay44 (3712) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
750 corked and caged bottle. Bottled on11/21/12. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained light beige head, with some lacing, over a black (SRM 40) body.....nose is coffee, lighter chocolate, cocoa, hints of Bourbon, slightest hints of vanilla.....taste is a slightly sweet brown sugar/molasses, with very light dried fruits including plum, raisin, light coffee, cocoa, light Bourbon, hints of vanilla, finishing with a mild bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, lightly astringent, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a nicely balanced beer, and in addition, the Bourbon, has been used with a relatively light hand. adding complexity without dominance. It is a bit on the dry side for a Baltic, and the dried fruit character of the malt backbone is light. The dominant aromas and flavors are of the more heavily roasted malts. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Bottle from the brewery. Pours dark brown with a bubbly, frothy beige head. Tastes like chocolate malt, burnt toast, roasted coffee, and creamy with a hint of dried fruits. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like chocolate malt, burnt toast, roasted coffee, dried fruits, and chocolate syrup.

August 25th, 2014 - Uinta’s looks like beef in a bottle. As I pour it, I accidentally utter "Oof, this looks beefy", both a comment on its muscular stature and the dark, brown color of the body and the slightly lighter color of the head. The aroma is extra creamy, giving off hints of steak sauce and soy sauce (notably, not teriyaki sauce), with hazelnut and nutella for sweetness. I go in again once the foam settles, but catch mostly the same, though richer, and clearer. I deliberately served it on the warmer side, which allows the flavor to deploy into action immediately. The alcohol burns bright, but settles once the hazelnut flavor comes into play. I also catch the flavor of virginia pipe tobacco, and in the aftertaste, a long, deep, festive flavor of roasted chestnut. It’s a heavy beer, and definitely on the boozy side, which detracts from some of the potential for complexity, but some reappears near the bottom of the glass. The aftertaste adds some licorice and anise, a nice spicy finish, and a clean way to end a powerful, potent beer.

Back Log. I couldn’t for the life of me remember what this beer was called when I drank it, but out of no where, bam Sea Legs. That’s what happens with age. Nice notes of bitter chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. A solid Baltic porter.

Top score on appearance for a very resilient beige head, pours a dark brown, almost black with mahogany edges. Nice Aroma, chocolate bars, vanilla powder, dark roast and a little booziness. Very deep in terms of flavor, heavy malts, chocolate, charred wood, hints of mint. Lasting finish. Lovely.

Could have more aroma. It’s solid on its appearance. You can taste the oak and some amount of coffee
