Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a porter/stout glass. Looks good in this style of glass, even if it might not be proper.

Sudsy oatmeal-colored head with a smattering of brown within that darkens it a bit. Lace is everywhere. Incredible persistence on the head. Pitch-black body.

Cocoa is all over this nose. I wasn't expecting that. I find most schwarzbiers to be subtler with the dark malts, but this is not at all. Very up front and almost milk chocolatey. Smells like dessert. Light floral notes are detectable but struggle to pierce the chocolate. I'm not mad at this. It smells tasty.

Roast malts take the front seat for the palate ride, as this could easily be mistaken for a stout as a porter based on the robustness of these malts. Only the grassy, earthy flavors that arrive mid-palate suggest to me this isn't a stout or porter and I'm questioning myself as I drink this, wondering if without knowing what it was, would I identify it as a schwarzbier? The cocoa flavors on the finish don't make it any easier to disabuse me of my thoughts of a darker ale.

It's quite a feat for Uinta to have squeezed so much aroma and flavor out of a beer that drinks so lightly. Carbonation tickles the tongue throughout and hops linger lightly and lend a touch of juicy sweetness before the dry cocoa finish. It's very enjoyable to drink.

This is a session beer if ever there were one. Low in ABV but big on flavor. I love it.

Very dark brown brew with a 2 finger head of off white foam sitting atop.

Bitter roasted malt in the smell with string hints of smoke. The bitter could be some hop character as well, I suppose.

Roasted malt, bitter hops, definite flavours of smoke that compliment. There's some real harmony going on with this black lager.

It has a creamy mouthfeel.

Very good brew!

Pours nearly black with a moderate head of khaki froth that settles into a veil of frogspawn. Aroma smells of roasted malt and earthy, grassy hops, along with some peat, salted caramel, and char.

The taste is mostly roasty and burnt, with a mild, earthy and noble hop presence. Some warming adds a spicier edge to the hops. Light body and mild carbonation make for an exceedingly thin mouthfeel that barely gains its footing in the finish.

Overall, this is a thin and unremarkable black lager.
