Uinta Brewing Baba Black Lager

What the brewers say

“This black lager has flavors of dark coffee, chocolate, and subtle wood smoke. Our black sheep’s color stands out and leads the herd in drinkability.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate rich malt and smoke up front with toasty, biscuit, and slight chocolate malt behind that.”

Flavor: “More toasty popcorn kernel and chocolate malt in the flavor with much less smoke. Moderate sweetness into moderate bitterness in the flavor. Clean lager profile. Finish is slightly bitter with a hint of smoke or peat that lingers. Good balance on the sweetness.”

Overall: “Nice beer overall but some may find the smoky malt out of place in the aroma. The flavor is well executed, and the dry finish is nice. Still, it’s a very light beer with some big flavors that are difficult to corral in such a small package.”
