Baba Black Lager
This afternoon I am trying Baba Black Lager "Herded" by Uinta Brewing Company in Salt Lake City, Utah. Certified Organic by the Utah Dept of Agriculture. The label has a sketch of a sheep, which is presumably Baba. Enjoy Before 07/21/14.
Smoky aroma with some burnt malt, chocolate and prunes behind the smoke. Sweet and savory, first sip. Sweet prunes and smoky ham come first, along with some cocoa. Plenty of roasted malt throughout and a bitter, hoppy balance toward the finish. Low-medium body, carbonation just right. Not a complete campfire in your mouth which was fine with me. Rather, this was a tasty and more tame Schwarzbier. Check it out!
