Crooked: Labyrnith

It's amazing the breadth of which that some breweries span. This beer is from Uinta Brewing under their Crooked Line. I've had Crooked Line brews before at a few beer fests, but never Labyrinth. I picked this guy up at a local super market for $13.99. 

Immediately after opening the cork, I smelled the aroma of chocolate and herbs. At the first splash on my toungue of Labyrinth, I then tasted a for sure bittersweet chocolate overtone. This beer is very rich and could be overpowering for some. Also, clocking in at 13.5% alc, one bottle could "do a body good". The finish is finely tuned with a woodsy/oaky taste. 

This is a very dark beer and should be enjoyed with desserts or on it's own. I was glad to be caught in the maze of flavors that Labyrinth has to offer. It's not absolutely stellar, but it does stand out as a solid choice for the right occasion.

I'd say for the alc %, the flavor, and the size, it's well priced.

Simple but flavorful. Good for desserts or alone, it has it's place..

This beer is not for your light beer drinker. It is definitely dark and decently complex. Not one to chug.
I'll drink it again on occasion.
