Pickeed up a loose single at the bottle shop. Been a huge fan of Uinta recently. This beer like their others is wonderful. The flavors combine to make a nice black lager.

A- dark. Slight reddish hue, almost non transparent

S - smells like a nice cup of coffee. Hints of vanilla and hazelnut. You can smell the roasted hops.

T - none of the flavors are overwelming,but like before mentioned, blend together perfectly. Its smooth and mellow but very drinkable

M - very light here. A few flavors lingure around, but nothing is over powering. Little to know carbonation

O - an exceptional black larger in my opinion. Well balanced wiith nice roasted malts and very little hop presence. Would certainly putrchase this again.

I've seen this on the shelves here for quite awhile now, and finally picked some up last week. 12oz bottle poured into a stemmed lager glass.

Pours a deep black, like a stout. Small beige head on top that dissipates very quickly. Aroma of hot chocolate, dry husky grains, graham crackers. Easy subtle feel. Though this beer looks heavy, it is very light on the palate. Almost too easy to drink this one.

Heavy-hitting roasted chocolate flavors present. Sweet mellow flavors meld with a dry cracker finish. Cereal grains on the back end. This little beer packs on the flavor. This is organic too? Nice. A nice little beer here. This is a style that is underrated in my mind, and one I need to revisit more and more. Cool label art to boot.

Appearance: This one is a very dark amber very much near brown. On top is an off white only about a finger thick.

Aroma: Dark fruits, notes of smokiness, roasted hop, bits of rye, slight wisps of figs. Malts are very much dark roasted and bready.

Taste: Full bodied and crisp. Rasins, dark fruits, bready malts, faint plum notes in the towards the back. Dark roasted hops are well on the floral side with a nice dryness. In the end is a smokey finish to top it off.

Notes: The smokiness and the dryness makes this one a solid beer and a little bit hearty. Cheers.

12 oz bottle, expiry 12/24/14 in a chalice glass. Pitch black color, true to its name. Complex malty flavor with coffee notes. Hard to believe 4% ABV. Very drinkable.
