Black colored beer with a tall brown colored head, very dark for the style.

Smells strongly of patent malt with a big coffee aroma. Mild berry aroma. Fainter licorice and a slight carrot scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a bittersweet chocolate after taste with a long lasting finish. Berry flavor under all the coffee. Slight smoke this is very much a chocolate and coffee flavored beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a strong Milk Stout flavor wise. Pretty much a bittersweet ale.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: Bottled 2012-11-17
Glass: US pint glass

Unsure if this is a lager or not, but if not, Uinta has done a very remarkable job mimicking one from ale yeast. The aromas and flavors are of very tasty smoothed-out cocoa, roasted coffee beans, burnt toast, and dark caramel sweetness with minor characters of marshmallow, vanilla, oak, anise, and ethanol. I would definitely pick this one up again if seen.

Pours a 2cm tall head of dark tan to light brown foam, made up of small-sized bubbles that yield a frothy appearance, which fades in about a minute and a half to a thick ring around the perimeter of the glass. Lacing is good, with some patches of patterns and lines/dots clinging to the walls of the glass. Body is a very dark brown to black color, light bringing out no change to the hues. Carbonation not visible through the opaque body or along the sides of the glass.

Aroma of smooth, dark roasted malt yielding some coffee beans and cocoa, with vanilla, marshmallow, and slight anise to ethanol.

Flavors of oak, vanilla, moderate to mild roasted malt with some dark caramel sweetness in the background. Front of palate tastes sweet chocolate, dark roasted coffee beans, vanilla, slightly burnt toast with a heavy backing caramel sweetness, and a touch of toasted marshmallow. Mid-palate of marshmallow, smooth and sweet cocoa, roasted coffee beans, dark caramel-like sweetness, subtle charred toast, oak, vanilla, anise, and ethanol. Back of palate tastes burnt toast and grains, ethanol, smooth cocoa and dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, a touch of toasted marshmallow. Aftertaste of light roasted malt contributing a touch of smooth burnt toast, mild cocoa, burnt caramel, and modest ethanol.

Beer is medium-heavy in body, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a lightly foamy (3/10) and otherwise smooth (7/10) mouthfeel that is very soft and suitable for a higher ethanol-content beer, and within expectations for the style. Ethanol is generally well-hidden, with a subtle burn on the throat and light heat in the nostrils. Closes dry, with moderate stickiness clinging to the palate.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, bottled in November of 2013 and 8.7% ABV. Pours a very dark brown with a two inch light kaki head, that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, tobacco, leather, and a sweet smokey flavor.

Taste is all that, starts with Bourbon, dark chocolate, and smoke and finishes with a dry tobacco and vanilla finish.

Body is medium, with nice carbonation, dry, and goes down easy for a sipper.

This was nice, will stash some in the cellar and see how they develop.

Had on tap at Lures on 2/21/14

A-Pour was a deep dark brown/near black with a tan ring for a head.

S-Nice aroma with vanilla, chocolate and a very light bourbon note.

T-Taste was very good. The bourbon came out a little stronger playing well with the wood and vanilla. Roasted malt and milk chocolate were in the background. Very complex beer and not cloying or overly sweet.

M-Medium body with a creamy feel and low carbonation.

O-Was surprised to see this beer was 8%. Hides alcohol beautifully. Light carbonation round this beer. out. Even more delicious as it warms.

I am normally not a big fan of Porters but i enjoyed this porter and it was poured in a tulip glass which is the perfect glass for a porter. You can smell the aroma the coffee and mocha. Full bodied taste, definitely not a beer you chug. Very nice sipping/enjoyable brew.

I recommend it to any beer enthusiast.
