This black lager is delicious and smooth. It has great flavor and texture - it is not velvety like some other black lagers. Baba is a great session beer and my favorite black lager.

12oz cold can into tulip

Appearance - Jet black all the way through, 2 finger head was pretty dense with good retention and leaves a bit of wispy lacing

Smell - Light notes of bittersweet cocoa, hints of charcoal, smoke, and a feint vinous/raisin character

Feel/Taste - Light body with effervescent yet gentle carb comes off as smooth but watery. Taste up front is crisp but subtle bittersweet cocoa, roasted coffee, and a robust charcoal, smokey, grainy earthiness. As taste fades there is that feint raisin-fruity note, then moderate, drying bitterness from what I believe is solely roasted grain... Hops seem imperceptible, but may just be that well integrated. Finish is bone dry.

Overall - Wow, did Uinta ever fit a ton of roasty flavor into this very light beer! Unfortunately, it's body comes off as quite watery, which is probably to be expected at just 4% ABV. Also, I found the roasty charcoal aspect to be a bit much, which negatively affects the drinkability/ sessionability for me. Still, I respect what Uinta has done with this: it seems like a no-brainer session beer for a porter/stout lover.
