Nearly black in color with bright ruby highlights. Creamy, almost tan head on top with pretty good retention. The smell is creamy, with dark roasted malts at the forefront. Milk and chocolate malts round out the nose.

Smooth with higher carbonation like a lager, but with a a taste that is reminiscent of the stout that it looks like. Refreshingly light in body, but it still manages to support a nice combination of dark malts and some crisp and clean hops, bringing about an even-keeled balance. A small nuttiness is present in the aftertaste and linger. Some nice complexities come through this very light ABV beer, and all aspects work very well together. Maybe its because this is the first euro dark lager I've had, but I'm pleasantly surprised by this one. No off flavors at all and an excellent refreshing mouthfeel that might just be the best part of this beer. After trying three of their beers, I like Uinta so far!

A - Black as coffee, nice thick, tan head on the pour.

S - Grains, grassy, malts, bread, yeast.

T - Grassy, grain notes up front, accompanied by coffee malts...LOVE the coffee taste! Wow, the more bitter coffee malts, the better. Finishes with a nice hop note...extremely balanced profile. Very nice.

M - Plenty of effervescence, medium texture, wow...some sticky hops toward the finish? Yum.

O - This is one of the best lagers I have ever had. The balance and VARIETY in the flavor profile are simply outstanding. Outstanding session brew.
