In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Uinta Brewing Baba Black Lager

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.”
