This is an exceptional beer. I think the organic ingredients make a huge difference.

Planning to enjoy for the next few weeks: just put a keg in the Keggerator. It'll be gone soon after my friends find out I have it!

Very good. Appearance is a thick light tan, long lasting head with lots of lace and an almost opaque, but clear black brown color. Aroma is roast up front then dark leather, meat, coffee, malt. cocoa. Flavor's like nose, dryish at first, then with the other qualities including tang, there's a bit of sweet in the finish. Body is good, tho perhaps a bit thin. Very quaff-able. I'd like to have another right away.

Black with a nice light tan quilt. Smells malty, some coffee, some soil, some leather - all components come together nicely. I like the nose. Robust flavor with leather, cocoa, dark chocolates, coffee (espresso tradiitional), a slight earthy character. well fucking done. Medium on full bodied with moderate, but prickly carb. This is a sincerely well done beer. Absolute delight for the style. Really recommend this.

Poured from bottle (best by 06/13/14) into a tulip glass

A- pours black with one finger off white brown head, leave good lacing and a lasting cap.

S- roasted/ charred malt, semisweet chocolate that you can easily smell before you put your nose in the glass!

T/M- very light sweetness with a strong bittersweet chocolate and sharp hit of carbonation in the beginning that ends full and smooth. Yum!

O- a great sessions beer that tastes great from the first one to the last, no matter how many you have =]

This black lager is delicious and smooth. It has great flavor and texture - it is not velvety like some other black lagers. Baba is a great session beer and my favorite black lager.
