First, a brief (I promise) personal history. After a typically self-indulgent November-December during which my daily diet invariably included copious amounts of massively hopped, highly intoxicating, high-caloric beers, I took my now customary (and necessary) period of abstinence. A key goal once I resumed drinking was to try and discover beers I'd enjoy that were in a far more sessionable style. Which brings us to this evening's much-anticipated tasting of Uinta's Baba Black Lager.

Well, I quickly discovered the positive reviews were well deserved. This is a very tasty beer that belies its skimpy 4% ABV. Yes, I'd still prefer a Hop Stoopid. But I'll definitely be buying more of this. And the jet-black color is very cool.

Bottom line: If you, like me, have a wee bit of trouble with the concept of "moderation" and are looking to downgrade your ABVs without sacrificing taste, this is certainly worthy of your consideration.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a mostly full sheer sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient spackles of lacing.

S- Big aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light smoke and burnt sugar. Quite sweet smelling. Also a bit nutty.

T- Flavor isn't as powerful. Dark roast and a mild bitterness without much else. Mild anise in the aftertaste.

M- Thin and watery with medium carbonation and a surprisingly lightish body

O- The aroma of this beer is a big teaser. You get all sorts of good roast notes and then the rest of the beer is a letdown. Such a shame.

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 =]

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Dark mahogany beer with mocha head

Smell - dark chocolate, roasted barley

taste - roasted barley, slight coffee bean, dark chocolate

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, beer goes down pretty smooth, nice roastiness towards the back end

Overall - nice version of a style that isn't readily available, easy drinking beer, good flavor for its low ABV level, worth a shot

Price Point - $1.59/12 oz single
