Pours an almost pitch black with a moderate head that dissipates into a thin lace. Aroma is malty and coffee like; almost like a stout. Taste of toasted malts with a nice hops finish. Creamy, smooth and light feel. Overall, I liked this one; it reminded me of a lighter stout or porter. Very drinkable.

black as night in color with a fluffy, half a finger of white head. Very light roasted malt. Finishes with lager flavors of toasted malt and bread. Very thin body and short finish. a hint of bitterness rounds out the flavors.

Appearance wise, its a beautiful dark color, with very little head. This beer presents with a very subtle, almost too downplayed aroma. Notes of plum and cherry and slight smokiness. Taste and mouthfeel are the strong suit of this beer. Has the same underlying character of flavor of a stout or porter, but still the lightness and crispness of a lager. Same smokey, chocolatey plum, and a subtle touch of apple cider, to round it off. Not too sweet though. Well balanced with an unaggressive hop profile which cuts the sweetness without pretending to be something it is not. If you want a Black Lager, this is a very good choice.

On-tap at the Brass Tap, Greenfield, WI:

Pours black with a thin white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of dark bread with restrained roast.

The taste is of dark malt with muted roast. Slightly mineral-like aftertaste.

It has a light to medium body.

It hits the style well enough. An easy drinker.

Super quick review. Uinta really killed it with this lager: full & rich without being filling, complex & deep without being overbearing. Top-notch.
