Uinta Brewing Company
Baba Black Lager
Style: Schwarzbier
ABV: 4.00 %

LOOK: Stubby bottle, USDA certified Organic. Pours a dark brown, just about black. Clear, with a soapy off white froth. Leaves plenty of lace on the glass.

SMELL: Chocolate like malty aroma, bringing back memories of malt chocolate Ovaltine.

TASTE: Roasted, dark malt flavor with some smoke and bakers chocolate. Mild tea like hop with a complimentary bitterness.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth, full of flavor.

OVERALL: A nice dark lager, really easy drinking. One of the better session ales Ive had. I could recommend this to anyone.

A - A finger's worth of fairly thick moderately dense light brown colored foam... Modest at best retention gives way to a full web of lacing and a fairly thick foam collar... It may be deemed a black lager, but this one is really a deep rich chocolatey brown color that allows a slight bit of light to leak in around the edges of the glass... Some quick paced carbonation streaks can be seen rising towards the top of the glass under close examination...

S - Fairly subdued and rather muted, but still quite enjoyable... Lightly roasted malts... A hint of coffee... A hint of chocolate... Perhaps some dark bread notes... Not much else... A little more umph in the category would have gone a long way...

T - Just about what I expected... Lightly roasted malts... Some faint hints of coffee and chocolate... Perhaps a bit nutty as well... The finish has a slightly burnt or charred character to it...

M - Light bodied... Light carbonation... Goes down smooth... Starts sleek and turn a slight bit chalky at the finish...

D - Quaffable and rather enjoyable... It depends how you're viewing this beer... If you look at it compared to all of beerdom, it's a fairly pedestrian average at best offering... If you look at it solely as a session brew, it's a very nice offering from Uinta... Lots of flavor and pretty decent character for a 4% ABV offering, especially for one of such dark coloring... I'm quite happy with and would seriously consider pick-up a sixer when I'm looking for an enjoyable session beer...

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is dark brown to near black, amber hues on the edge; head is light tan, presenting dense, about 1/2" thick.

Smell is light roast, clean malt, light grass.

Taste is great, very pleasant, solid roast flavor, hint of mild malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is very full, nicely carbonated and great lingering flavor; flavors bounce and fill the mouth.

Overall, very easy drinking, great tasting brew, great flavor and mouthfeel from such a low strength brew.
