More Praise for Labyrinth
62 different breweries across 22 States participated. 30 awards were handed out, and no surprise Uinta Brewing Company's Labyrinth Black Ale walked away with a Sliver Medal in the Strong Porter/Stout category.
I know many of you have already had Labyrinth but in lieu of it's recent praise on the world stage I felt it was due another mention.
Labyrinth pours black with a two finger brown head that left good lacing. The nose is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, molasses and a touch of vanilla. The flavor starts rich, big and slightly sweet with dark chocolate, caramel, dark roasted malts next comes black molasses, coffee, oak and some notes of vanilla bourbon with a sticky full body. Finishes slightly dry and warm.
Labyrinth is in wide distribution around the state and this is the perfect time of year to take in big, bold beers such as this.
