well, it's dark looking. nice thin layer of variegated film: sudsy punctuated by a paisley of tightfoam spots. some lacing for sure

very oaky and vanilla aroma. some blackenedness, though minimal sweetness.

very oaky flavor, though not harsh. the mouthfeel is soft and airy. limited kilning astringency. hop flavor up front: woody and blackcurrant

Appearance: pitch black with a khaki head that settles nicely. A bit rocky and foamy. Lacing is nice and clings for a long time.

Nose: Dark malt, chocolate, bourbon.

Taste: Dark fruit, wood, cocoa, bourbon. Nice mouthfeel for the style Carbonation is spot on.

Notes: It hides it's alcohol extremely well.

A most interesting porter from Utah?!?! Pours from the big ol' bottle with a thick rich tan
head of foam and a luxurious dark brown to deep cola hued color. Aroma of chocolate,
coffee, light whiskey, smoke, and rich malts. Flavor is excellent with deep varying layers
of caramel malts, chocolate, and coffee on the front and sides. A mild whiskey flavor comes
through on the back with a light smoky aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, velvety yet lightly
rugged around the edges makes this an interesting brew. Very nice.

Cheers

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.
