Served a deep dark brown with a hint of ruby. A Lasting tight head graces the top of the sampler glass. To the nose it is sweet chocolate, the olfactory equivalent of a tootsie roll. Smooth and light on the tongue, this beer quickly wins me over with its subtle maltiness and subdued hops. An easy choice for a winter session beer. Has a pleasant roasty character without the burnt or bitter notes characteristic of some other examples of the style. On tap at the brewpub in Glens Falls.

Draught poured as part of sampler at the brewpub. Poured black with a thick off white head. Malty richness in the flavor with caramel notes. Thick, creamy head with a solid bodied beer. Significant contrast to the other brews at this brewery.

I really liked this one. Pours a deep brown with a medium tan head to it. Taste is very malty - chocolate, cocoa. Finishes smooth and dry. Pretty thick. Very good stout.

Growler. Pours dark red, dark brown in the glass, with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee, raisin, chocolate and some cherry, and mildly tart fruit. The flavor is slightly bitter cocoa and earthy bitterness, sweet chocolate, and mocha. Creamy, with low carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours a bark brown-black color with a big two fingers of thick brownish head. The head hangs around forever, finally reducing down to a still sizeable layer leaving lots of lace on the glass in the process.
S - Aroma is a mix of lots of roasted sweet caramel malts and some oats. There is also a touch of coffee and caramel in the background.
T - Starts off with some sweet roasted caramel malt flavor with some oats in the background. Through the middle some sweet milk flavor and some chocolate flavors come through. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee flavors that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels super smooth and creamy. Finish is really creamy and roasty with some nice sweet notes.
D - Very drinkable. The nitro tap really creates an outstanding looking beer here. The flavors are all really nicely balanced and the beer feels really great.

Roasted malts; leathery taste. Soft caramel notes in flavor and even more in the aroma. Silky feel, velvety. Soft tobacco notes. A hella dry beer with a nice soft finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black with a tight tan head. The nose is quite cocoaish. A fairly pronounced earthy character and even a little bit of nice fruitiness. Lots of silky, oaty unctuousness. Cloudy palate and a nice lingering bitter cocoa flavour. Another very well-made bitter style.

Almost black, little hazy, off-white dense head. Roasted malt with some sweetness in the nose. Roasty and burnt, more robust than their porter. Hint of oiliness in palate.
