A: Black with a decent sized lightly tanned head.

S: Roast with a lot of hops upon initial smelling. Sweet caramel, coffee, herbal hops. a touch of citrus. Very dark malt in here. Very interesting smell.

T: Lots of chocolate with a big hit of roast. Very bready. Middle of the mouth it suddenly turns into an ipa. Big dry bitter finish. caramel. lots of acid intermingling with pine. There is a presence of alcohol on the end.

M: Medium bodied, like a porter. Nice dry bitter pine finish that soon turns into a coffee finish as it lingers. and trust me, it lingers!

O: A mix of a porter and an ipa. Its a very deep brew. lots going on here but it is a very enjoyable drink. /90

Uinta Dubhe

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

Appearance: Basically black ale with a nice dark brown head. Head stuck around for a minute or two, left a lacing. 4/5

Smell: Not getting a whole lot from this bottle, earthy dark malts and pine-y hops are hinted. 3.5/5

Taste: Pine-y hops mixed with a nice earthy dark ale. Pretty good, big flavor. Not too much alcohol in the flavor for the ABV. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly creamy, appropriate carbonation. 4.25/5

Tasty beer with plenty of flavor. 4/5
