A very good Baltic Porter. Most of Uinta Crooked is el fabulouso,, en fuego.

I think prior batches had more barrel, bourbon presence as now it is more in nose than taste. Balance, complexity, mouthfeel are great. If u think this is a stout : nope. Much lighter.

Grab The Labyrinth from Uinta for BA RIS taste explosion ....

IMHO: do not age this brew, it gains nothing and thins out after a year.

Pours the color of burnt caramel with a frothy head of khaki foam that’s creamy and lays itself on top of the beer. When the glass is not too full you can see cola colored hues and honey golds. Lace is shimmering like sea foam in the bright moonlight.

Nose is lush caramel and a fainter molasses. Coffee, chocolate and roasty malt. A sultry whiff of sweet bourbon and a bit of vanilla. The malt is earthy and fragrant. Some elusive dark fruits seem to flash and fade like twinkling stars but the one that lasts is a alight plum.

Taste is dry roasty malt with it’s sweet underpinnings. washes over the palate with a surprising milky sweetness. Strong bitter coffee, dry bittersweet chocolate, subtle vanilla and tempting bourbon. There is a wood so light on this that it seems to be afloat, weightless on the beer. A slight warmth from alcohol as this one finishes crisp, dry, thinnish to the palate but with a medium mouthfeel and with some hop bitter to linger alongside all that smooth caramel.

In a snifter from a bomber.

A- light, foamy espresso head forms into a plateau, and lace is scattered everywhere. Pitch black body with zero clarity.

S- creamy sweet malt flavor, the trade mark Uinta floral hop aroma (smells similar to Dubhe), faint chocolate, earthy notes. Caramel.

T- dark bitter chocolate, caramel, a touch of floral hops, vanilla.

M- thin and viscous with a bitter bite and some minor booziness. The finish lingers bitterlike.

O- A good beer but I remember it being close to perfection on my first try. I guess my taste has changed or evolved.

Picked up a caged and corked 750 ml bottle from Total Wine for $11.99. Bottled on 141/04/13.

Beer poured dark brown with a near perfect tan head.

Nose has hints of mocha and whiskey.

Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, and whiskey. The combo works well together.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and very smooth.

Overall this brew has some great qualities! Porters tend to be thin bodied but this one has a nice viscous feel. The whiskey barrel is subtle and well played. The vanilla and chocolate added worked out pretty well. Nice brew, glad i had the opportunity to try!
