Beer Review - Uinta Baba Black Lager.

Uinta Brewing Company - Baba Black Lager

Beer Type: Schwarzbier - 4.00% ABV

Appearance: Cool little 12 oz brown bottle with a very classy looking label. Beer poured a deep dark brown/red color with just a bit of beige head.      

Smell: Roasted malt and some coffee aroma. Not a lot going on but it smells enticing.  

First Drink: Coffee up front then some smokey flavors which I wasn't expecting. Ends with the malt and a hint of bitterness.   

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly light for a beer that is this dark in color. I expected it to be a bit heavier.    

Last Drink: Bitter is building but the roasted malts are really carrying this brew through til the end.          

Drinkability: Very damn drinkable! Not what I expected but I like it.            

Notes: Grabbed this in Asheville NC on a visit last year. It's also the first beer I have seen to have the USDA Organic label!         

Verdict: 3.75 out of 5. Easy drinking and full of flavor.
