A: Pours a dark opaque brown, with a fair amount of tan head. The foam dissipaters quickly, but leaves a solid blanket on the surface and thick streaks of lacing.

S: Sweet earthy vanilla malt, with just a light touch of hops.

T: Light leading into medium sweetness, with a small touch of hops on the finish. Heavy roasty undertone throughout.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. On the light side, but really nice.

Overall, a very drinkable and enjoyable porter. It's a nice mix of complexity and drinkability, a bit strong but also on the light side of mouthfeel. Worth trying.

A.Black with a thin dark brown head.

S.Chocolate, Coco, Oak, and a hint of Vanilla.

T.Not bad but definitely not what I was expecting. There's more coffee and hops than chocolate. Though there's vanilla this beer is far for sweet.

M.Thinner than most porters. I can use a little more smoothness.

Overall not a bad porter but has more of a stout feel to it.

750ml Corked & Caged bottle. Bottled On 12/04/12. Served in a snifter.

Pours a very dark opaque brown with two fingers of dark beige foam. Tiny dense bubbles gives a creamy look. Dissipates fairly quickly. A nice amount of lacing is left behind in the glass.

Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, molasses, birch wood, and roasted barley. Some alcohol vapors emerge as well.

Flavor starts with a mildly sweet and bitter maltiness. Middle has a dry oakiness with vinous notes. Leads to lots of roasty, charred oak bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is well blended and only emerges a tiny amount in the finish.

Medium-full bodied with very nice creamy carbonation. Very drinkable.

The 7th beer I've tried in the Uinta Crooked Line series, and possibly the best.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours dark brown with a thick cap of frothy white head.

The aroma has hints of bitter dark chocolate with some dark fruits in the background. Roasted malts on the pallet with dark bready flavors. Hints of bitter cocoa in the background.

The body is medium with soft carbonation. Overall this is a good brew; would gladly try it again.

Poured into a tulip. The color is black. There is a full fluffy tan head with lots of staying power.

Bendurgin did the pouring and I could smell the chocolatey hop aroma.

The taste is full of coffee and some chocolate vanilla notes. This is well balanced with roasted and hop bitterness cutting into the malt sweetness just enough. Oak notes are subtle, perhaps undetectable.

This is full bodied with a fluffy mouthfeel. This is super delicious. The only way it could improve is by being rarer.

My initial take was a "sweet, boozy" porter. Love at first impression...!!!

The body looked jet black, the head thick, chunky, tan and rocky. Boozy cocoa made up the aroma with additions of dark, ripe fruit. The taste and feel came across smooth, rich, chocolaty, thick and vinous.

A very well-made Baltic porter that melds well across the board of flavor, aroma, and feel. Very well-balanced, deeply complex, and goes down well while nipping at some Old Forester Signature bourbon. Yes, a nearly exceptional porter...hell, scratch that -- definitely an exceptional porter...

Poured in a wine glass (best available glass)

A- 1 inch tan head. Perfect lasting lacing. Deep dark brown almost black. 

S- black cherry, molasses, burnt sugar, roasty/toasty. Smells like a food I can't quite pinpoint.

T- complex. black cherry, dank, acidic, dark roasted coffee, strong licorice, dark malts, a bit musty, dark rye bread.

F-  thick, rich and full. 

O- Sweet and heavy. The black cherry flavors are strong. There's a bit of funky "food" smell (slight taste) that was at the tip of my tongue and couldn't quite pinpoint. I prefer the bolder flavors of imperial stouts but this was definitely sweet and interesting.

Really awesome aesthetics. Beautiful artwork of a sailor in some dark weather meeting a mermaid.

the newest in the wonderful crooked line series, and probably my favorite thing ive ever had from uinta. a oak aged Baltic porter, with all kinds of oaky and vanilla smells and flavors, but very little sweetness. its really malty and thick, less like a porter and more like a stout. the feel is amazing of this beer, not quite creamy, but definitely frothed, its light of its color and thickness, but isn't particularly carbonated. silky might be a better way to describe it. the malt flavor is crazy roasty, but without any bitterness, and the oak is fresh and clean, not charred and bourbon laced, but organic and fresh cut. the alcohol is invisible, and this to me is a sort of genre transcending brew, its absolutely fantastic. its a matted black color, mysterious and deep, and sitting in my globe next to the bottle it came from (with gorgeous artwork), with its milky foam head, its a sight to behold. as close to full marks as i usually go, this beer is just sensation, super complex, woody, and neither sweet or bitter. its a heck of a combination, and you should not let the price deter you. its magic, best beer ive had in awhile.

Part of my NC haul, wish we could get these beers here in Oklahoma...

Pours mahogany with caramel colored head. Good lacing & above average head retention

S: Mucho dark fruit, carob, fusel alcohol, woody notes, licorice & smoke

T: Follows the nose, a touch of chocolate & charred grain up front. Black currant,, charred grain, a touch of ainise & carob as this warms, plus woody dryness, plums & a touch of leafy hops, & bit of medicinal/sasparilla sweetness. Finishes with a bit of charred grain, plums, some caramel, woody dryness

MF: Slick with silky carbonation, medium bodied with sticky notes

A top notch Baltic Porter, another winner from the Crooked Stave line, this one drinks so easy, yet highly complex
