Baba is a solid black lager. It looks great in the glass with a great head and lacing.

The aroma is weak but pleasant. The taste is also weak. It is somewhat roasty and somewhat hoppy, but not enough so.

The aftertaste is weak as well but nice and creamy. This is the third beer I have tried from this brewery and none of them were very impressive.

Two fingers of head on a black body.
The aroma has a light scent of roasted malt.
The taste has some burnt wood, roasted malt and a lemon bitter (mild) finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A decent black lager, though the taste was heavy on the burnt wood.

Poured into a stemmed Yuengling glass on 1/27/13

Best before: 06/21/13

In the glass this medium-dark brown beer is nearly black aside from tobacco highlights at the stem. A one finger head thins slowly. Retention is thin at the center but bunches up more around the inside of the glass. Solid swaths of lace.

Smooth aromas of roasted chocolate and dark malt with just a hint on tangy roast. Mild pine hop overtones. Solid in its simplicity. The flavor is dry roast throughout with a swell of roasty chocolate in the middle. Subtle hop profile adds a touch of earthiness. The only thing I don't care for is a papery taste that picks up in the finish after the roast flavors have subsided. Light, fairly crisp body with average carbonation. Nothing too fancy there.

Overall, I like Baba Black Lager and wouldn't mind having it again. It's the sort of beer that lends itself to drinking and not so much reviewing.

I've seen this on the shelves here for quite awhile now, and finally picked some up last week. 12oz bottle poured into a stemmed lager glass.

Pours a deep black, like a stout. Small beige head on top that dissipates very quickly. Aroma of hot chocolate, dry husky grains, graham crackers. Easy subtle feel. Though this beer looks heavy, it is very light on the palate. Almost too easy to drink this one.

Heavy-hitting roasted chocolate flavors present. Sweet mellow flavors meld with a dry cracker finish. Cereal grains on the back end. This little beer packs on the flavor. This is organic too? Nice. A nice little beer here. This is a style that is underrated in my mind, and one I need to revisit more and more. Cool label art to boot.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Nearly full on black, impressive lacing

SMELL: Soft charcoal, milk chocolate, faint oil hop, herbal, toasted bread, dried hay

TASTE: Mild roastiness, smooth, medium bodied, clean, balanced hopping, herbal, faintly salty, brown malt, toasted grapenuts, mildly roasty drying finish

A very sessionable brew, perfect for the winter and is a great substitute if you love Porters. Organic and all if you are into that, and all around great beer.
