3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz traded bottle. No clue what to expect based on the label art. Pours an orange-amber colour with a big, foamy, eggshell head and plenty of lacing. Pretty big aroma of sweet malt and a little alcohol. Pretty bold flavour that reminds me of brown sugar. Honestly, a pretty tasty beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The lads at Cooperstown Brewing have done a nice job with this one. The 7.7% abv is well-concealed, like a surprise bunt down the third base line. Maltier and less-hopped than most, this is a sweet, tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Exemplary within its style. Pours a deep amber color with a small head and good lace. The aroma is very floral semi sweet and fruity. The flavor is nicely nutty and fruity with a light herbal bitterness and some earthy and spicy hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice ruby brown color, beige head, generous lace, medium body.
The yeast is quite evident in the nose, but the malts dominate. Still the finish has a nice bite of hops which adds greatly to the pleasure of this beer. A good beer I think, and a very quaffable brew for all concerned, and a cool label for us baseball fans. ’Thanks Venom.’

08.05.04. Bottle, a surprise gift from a customer. Reddish amber color with a trace of a head that lingers. Aromas of blueberry, raspberry, sweet malt. Flavor is carried by a thin but coating palate that finishes sharply, dry, and hoppy - Grapeskins. More sweeeet berry and plum flavors and tartness. Some nice alcohol in flavor, but not in aroma, adds depth to taste. An interesting brew. Quite nice, really, and a great surprise. Not what I had expected when given this treat.

poured a clear brownish amber with little head...malty aroma with touches of overripe apple, alcohol, and banana liquor...some malty apple flavors with some sweetness riding along..semi-creamy mouthfeel with just a sliver of bitterness at the end..pretty smooth for 7.7%..but nothing stands out as extraordinary
