The Baba Black Lager from Uinta is another solid offering. The beer pours a nearly opaque dark with slightly off-white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is malty and I get a touch of hazelnut. The taste is more of a roasty maize with a touch of peat. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good winter session brew.

Poured from a bottle into a stemless wine glass

A- pours black with a one finger tan head. Real nice looking head, almost resembles a cappucino.

S- tons of char and roasted malts. Like, I can smell it sitting up in my chair with the beer on my table. WOW!

T- nice sweetness, slight smokiness, very passing bitterness in the back-end. Interesting, complex beer

M- body is very light, which is a shocker given the color but a welcome one given the ABV. Very drinkable beer

O- this is really good, and very affordable. Uinta keeps rolling out good stuff!

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.

Appearance: Pours with a medium to heavy bodied thickness. Creamy head which was present throughout. Heavy lacing on the sides of the glass with each drink. Looks pitch black in the glass but held to light some dark brown color appears.

Smell: Chocolate malt jumps out right away. Peanut butter and caramel tones add to the dark complexity of this brew. Barley and some roasted oak character can also be found. The aroma comes off very heavy, deep and complex.

Taste: Medium bodied roasted malt jumps out. The dark tones lighten up in the middle of the brew and come off with a toffee feeling. The finish is sweet with some chalky texture.

Mouthfeel: Much lighter then I expected after the aroma.

Overall: A nice mix of regular lager tones and dark malt. Reminds me of an easy going porter. A much more solid brew then I expected.
