Pours a slightly dark black with a tan head. Smells of roasted malts and non roasted malts. Tastes of lightly roasted malts and a little chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a good black lager.

L: bright dark brown under a 2" light tan foam collar with fair to good retention.

S: smooth clean dark malt and light roast smell with nothing harsh or burnt, no hop aroma and no fermentation aromas.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a dark brown almost black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated within a nice minute. Thin filmy to almost bubbly lacing glosses around the glass nicely. The aroma has some grainy breadiness riding into a sly malted spice underneath, I want to say black pepper, but somehow, that even seems like a stretch, somewhat. I want to say it comes off a lil’ bit like freshly baked bread. The flavor is grainy sweet with that spice coming back to make an effort to balance. Sly use of the bread flowing into the aftertaste and then into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium. Use of spice displays some harshness, but not overly done. Overall, schwarzbier or just regular Euro black lager. I’d like to say Euro black lager, ’cause that’s some weird German yeast if that’s what they used.

Uinta Brewing - my first offering from their stable of beers - a good first offering...

Pours a richly black color out of the can, small head but with good lacing down the pint glass. The smell was practically non-existent - try as I might, there was nothing I could really note of the brew - nothing. The feel was lightly carbonated, leaning towards being medium-bodied, and quite smooth on the tongue. Though I couldn't smell anything of consequence, the taste was uniquely malty in my opinion making it quite drinkable. Thought it might not be the best black lager I've had, it was a solid offering for the style.

L: Pitch black. Not much head was produced, but a very small head is beige, and there's rings of lacing all the way down.

S: Milk chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted barley, burnt grains, burnt toast, a little caramel.

T: Lots of milk and dark chocolate, burnt toast, a little bit of toffee, ashen coffee ground bitterness, a crisp and clean finish with faint hints of hops and a lingering roastiness.

F: Above its abv with an almost medium mouthfeel, smooth, nicely carbonated, slightly silky.

O: My first Schwarzbier. Barely seems like any sort of lager, but drinks like a very nice porter.
