12 oz can marked with a BB date of May 2015.

Huge, foamy tan head over a nearly opaque, dark brown body.
Rich, malty and complex. This drinks like an ale. Creamy smooth mouthfeel mimics a nitro tap origin. Lasting aftertaste of dark malts and earthy/herbal hops.

O: closer to a stout than any black lager I've had, this also may be the best.

Pours pitch black with a lingering head. Smell is of wonderfully charred malts. Taste is full of roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate. Hops provide just enough bitterness. Feel is absolutely velvety smooth. Light and very easy to drink. Tons of flavor for 4% ABV. One of the best black lagers currently out there IMO.

Very good. Appearance is a thick light tan, long lasting head with lots of lace and an almost opaque, but clear black brown color. Aroma is roast up front then dark leather, meat, coffee, malt. cocoa. Flavor's like nose, dryish at first, then with the other qualities including tang, there's a bit of sweet in the finish. Body is good, tho perhaps a bit thin. Very quaff-able. I'd like to have another right away.

3/19/15 (Can) - Dark black pour, roasted malt and coffee scents were very strong and desirable. Taste was even better, excellent roasted malt and chocolate. Very smooth to drink, minimal carbonation, light in both texture and ABV. Nice paring with desert. Overall very good offering!

Zomg, one of my biggest wants! And just sitting there at Fiama in Bellingham. I should qualify this, my oldest boy's fav stuffed bear is named Baba. Forgive me, I'm becoming verklempt (sp?).

Roasty dark malts, some bitter grassy hops. Looks great, tastes not too shabs.

A very mild, relaxing black lager. Easy on the bite and alcohol content, BABA goes down smooth. One minor drawback is a lack of confirmed character- nothing stands out. Black as coal, refreshing, non-bitter, and surprisingly light on the palette. Nice.
