From bottle. Pours silky dark brown with tan head. Lacing followed the beer down. Aroma was fruity and roasted malt. Taste is chocolate and roasted malts. Slight bitter on the end. Very good beer!

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun klibbig vätska med beige skum. Stor söt citrusdoft, mycket grape och smörkola. Stor söt besk grapesmak, bra bett i beskan, smörkola, söt lakrits och smörkola. Välbalanserad, stroa smaker och riktigt god. Ett maffigt öl där humlen verkligen får stort utrymme och den rostade malten skapar runda, söt fylliga smaker i god harmoni. Lilja (3322) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Hazy dark brown with a nice dark beige head.
Aroma is full of chocolate covered citrus peels, with other spicy and slightly piney complex hop aromas, mint and some roast. Pleasing.
Dark chocolate flavors, roasted coffee, intense hop flavors (bitter citrus and earth), some chocolate covered dark cherries, ash and high bitterness.
Full body, super long complex finish, nicely carbonated and satisfying.
A nice sipper as a digestif.

Pours dark dark brown with nice tanned head with nice lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit, chocolate, a bit prunes and a sting of alcohol. Taste of chocolate and roasted malts. Oily feeling on tongue with a long bitter finish. Well balanced. User134089 (1644) - - NOV 7, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $9.99 for a 4-pack on Nov. 7, 2012). Light black (if that is a color) with two fingers of tan head. Great circular tan retention on the side and above average on the top.
Smelled toffee, caramel and dark chocolate malts up front, giving way to a hop finish. Couldn’t put my finger on the type of hops, though. Seemed pretty a heavy beer overall.
Tasted similar to the smell. Got toffee and coffee malts up front, followed by a hoppy finish. Bitter coffee beans in there, albeit light. Very good overall.
Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Bitter finish.
Really good Black IPA. Not too many negatives at all. Glad I have four of these. Uinta is just so good… CarlJonas (231) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2012
Dark ruby red, big nicotine coloured head with long retention. Aroma of fruit liqueur filled chocolate pralines. The taste is almost like an inverted chocolate praline, first comes the sweet slightly alcoholic fruity innards, then the bitter dark chocolate. After that the hops take over for a looong and very bitter finish with some roasted notes. Medium mouthfeel. The bitterness in the finish was a bit harsh for me and I think my bottle could have been fresher, but still a very rich and complex beer.
