Opaque black with mahogany red highlights, a one-finger tan head that left nice lace. Sharp piney hops aromas with a strong malt background. Flavors were similar, though there was an additional sense of roasted malts. Medium bodied, high carbonation, and a slight grapefruit finish. nimbleprop (8830) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2017
On tap at Big Hunt, pours a lightly watery dark brown with some spitty, grey head. Nose has pine, soap, toast, malt, cracked grains, lightly vegetal. Flavor follows, malty, bready, toast, some coffee grounds, then pine, soap, dried orange peel. Finishes bitter and dry. luttonm (6863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2017
Can in Seattle. Thick off white head that is chunky and lingering. Quite dark body, nearly black. Roasty body, good dark bitter malt character with lighter pine syrup notes. Nose is dark fruit, raisin and prune. Full body, similar fruit flavors with nice bittering hop. Full and fruity. Nice beer, and solid example of the style. oobawa (1804) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2017
By far the best beer I've tasted from Uinta. Pours on the dark malt goodness, heavy with chocolate and roasty java notes backed up by hints of caramel, raisin, and cherry, yet all offset by a massive swath of piney hops and a brisk, herbal juniper finish. Fades bitter with veins of pumpernickel bread and oodles of hoppy vitriol. So very tasty...Pours brown-black with a thick beige head and endless lacing. Nose seems somewhat subdued, mostly chocolate with pine underneath. Thich, rich, smooth texture makes this pint frighteningly easy to put back. Killer brew. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Can. Deep brown with one finger head. Malty body with dark chocolate roast. Rather pine forward hops. Solid bitterness. Not always my favorite style, but this is quite enjoyable.

Dark and smooooth and roasty- almost a stout- very well made ale. Uinta never disappoints... HourGlass13 (1074) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has dank pine and herbal notes. Major pine in the taste. A bit of roast as well, but pine is the major player here. Bigger body and medium carbonation. freekyp (2428) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2017
Tap version at Lowes foods Kernersville NC. Chocolate Xmas tree beer. Strong pine tilt to the hops with a bakers chocolate earthy bitter undertone. A bit of malty sweetness creeps in during the fade keeping it even. Really good. Uinta brewed a winner here. bhensonb (15861) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Can from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of evergreen - at least pine - and some dark malt. Med body or so. Flavor is dark, earthy chocolate with evergreen - which may be more than pine, but at least pine. Finishes not entirely dry and piney hoppy bitter. Not to mention chocolate tagging along. Good Black IPA. Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2017
12oz can pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice fairly tight mocha head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Pretty good looking beer. The aroma offers up chocolate malts, dark roasted malts, a sliver of earthy ashy burnt malts and then light caramel malts blended into spicy rye bread almost mineral like sensation. The taste delivers a smooth supple mouth feel that ushers in dark roasted malts to almost ashy burnt maltiness. Just beyond that lies a pleasing chocolate malt note that takes the lead in the flavor to midway. Into the finish a modestly bitter mineral like and pine like hoppiness joins in to carve out more depth to the experience. This is pretty darn nice. A great rich roasty elixir.
