3.53/5 rDev -5.6%
Pours a dark ebony color with a tight, off-white head that leaves good medium sized chunks of lacing.
Smells of light roasted notes. Chocolate seems to dominate.
Tastes of the light roasted notes with a little bitterness. Notes of coffee and chocolate come through with some toasted bread. A touch of roasted bitterness combines some leafy hops to round out the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a pretty solid beer, but could definitely use some refinement.

From a 355 ml bottle (best by July 21, 2013) into a tulip.
A-This is a decent looking brew. A normal pour produces about one finger of mocha colored foam head. The head hangs around for a bit imparting a nice creamy feel. The beer is nearly black.
S-The smell is full of roasted malty flavors. Chocolate, coffee, and a milky sweetness dominate. The smell is a little one-dimensional, however, and I could have used a bit of hop bite or levity.
T-The taste has a little more balance with an earthy hop flavor coming in to balance the sweet, milky chocolate flavors from the malts. The brew packs a decent flavor punch for 4% ABV.
M-The feel is medium creamy up front with a mild, but noticeable wave of carbonation. Medium to full body for the style.
O-This is my first Uinta review and I'll say again that this beer punches above its alcohol weight. I think it is sort of rare to find a good winter session-type beer like this. That being said, the flavor is a touch earthy and dull when compared against the best examples of the style.

Pours a deep, dark brown with less than a finger of fluffy beige head. The head leaves some really nice lacing behind. There are mild roasted notes in the nose. Roasted malt flavor is upfront, but it is definitely lighter than one might expect for this style. The roasted goodness definitely increases on the finish.
I would not quite call this offering hearty, but it is certainly tasty and its designation as an organic ale is a definite bonus.

3.9/5 rDev +4.3%
pours a deep brown to black with a nicely sized light mocha head that quickly recedes, leaving behind tons of lacing.
nutty aroma with some toasted, not exactly roasted or charred malts, and thats about all. not bad, but pretty mellow.
again, nutty, but with some slight chocolate hints and some caramel/light molasses. a slight bit of herbal/earthy hops maybe and some leftover coffee from a few days prior. pretty easy-drinking, but flavorful.
light bodied with crisp, mellow carbonation that adds to the easy drinking qualities of this beer. a touch of sweetness lingers, but not a lot.
I was expecting more of a roasty schwarzbier type flavor profile, but this leans more towards a nut brown. It actually drinks pretty well and I could see myself downing a few of these in a social setting. It's tasty, but you don't have to think about it.

Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma is crisp, showing itself as a lager, with a clean roastiness that gives off some coffee and dark chocolate components, and a little bready. Flavor lacks the punch of the aroma a bit but definitely grew on me the more I drank it; sharp roastiness that is more coffee grind than chocolatey, a touch of some bread, and a nice charred and slightly bitter finish. Both the aroma and flavor comes out big time as it warms up. A crisp, light active mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice sessionable beer here. Uinta with a winner.
