Zomg, one of my biggest wants! And just sitting there at Fiama in Bellingham. I should qualify this, my oldest boy's fav stuffed bear is named Baba. Forgive me, I'm becoming verklempt (sp?).

Roasty dark malts, some bitter grassy hops. Looks great, tastes not too shabs.

A very mild, relaxing black lager. Easy on the bite and alcohol content, BABA goes down smooth. One minor drawback is a lack of confirmed character- nothing stands out. Black as coal, refreshing, non-bitter, and surprisingly light on the palette. Nice.

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The body is cola black with brown on the fringes. A light cream colored head dissipates, leaving a fine wisp with nice world map lacing.

Aroma: Toasted bread, charred grains, faint chocolate.

Taste: Very bright on the tongue with a tart, hoppy finish, but before that (!) there is a lot of roasted malts, charred grains, toasted bread and fain chocolate. Very malty.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied.

Overall: Excellent taste profile, easy drinking. I'll be revisiting this one I believe.

12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Nose of faint toast and yeast. Flavors of roasted coffee, smoke and bittersweet cocoa. Slight malt influence. Mildly bitter, yet mouth feel remains light and slightly watery with good carbonation. Dry, not sweet. Outstanding flavor for a light beer. Well done.

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!

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—only the faintest hints of brownish red hues are visible near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a finger high tan head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with some notes of cola and hints of burnt and roasted malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of dark malts along with notes of cola. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: For a beer that is relatively light in body, this is a very complex and flavorful brew. I definitely wouldn't mind having more than one of these in a sitting.

Serving type: can
