3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 Pours a clear red/orange/brown color, beige head, some lace. Aroma is definitely of sweeter malt, some fig. Flavor is malty and sweet, akin to a barleywine, some caramel as well. Medium-full body, alcohol not masked all that well IMO. Quite good though.

An interesting offering as a unique beer of their brewery. I liked the complexity of the malts, the alcohol is hidden well, but it didn’t make me want to drink more of it (seems like that is the theme over at Cooperstown Brewery)

Bottle. Pours a reddish mahogany brown. Really an intriguing beer. Smells strongly of caramel, toffee, banana, and other sweet fruits. Taste has a hit of vanilla and flowery notes throughout. Nice bite up front with a smooth, sweet finish.

This had some fruit in the taste. Strong alcohol for a %7.7 brew. Not bad. Good on a cool night.

Smokey, sweet aroma and a touch of some kind of fruit in the flavor that I can't put my finger on. Malts and caramel are also present. Medium carbonation.

Sligtly hazy amber with a small white head. An odd beer as I was not expecting a big beer from such a small brewery. Aroma of old wood and barleywine. A big taste from the first sip, a woody, liquor conditioned taste. You can not detect the ABV but you can feel it.

Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Bright, medium yellow pour with an unusual banana and strawberry nose, citrusy, with pineapple, cherry, citrusy hops, spectacularly complex, excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cherry, fruity, yeast nose. Ruby amber hue. Sticky off-white head. Very sweet, smooth and light texture/body. Start is all malt, flows very smooth over palate. Yeast provides nice fruitiness. Very drinkable, alcohol is not evident at all. Finishes with a light bitter lingering finish.
