3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jan. 18, 2013. On tap at Michael’s Restaurant, Sangerfield, NY. Dark, heavy; alcohol not particularly well concealed. Some disharmony flavor-wise. Chocolate/coffee notes and roastiness suggest more an imperial stout or porter than a Belgian strong ale. Wishing this new local brewery well!

on tap at the brewery in hamilton. Definite alcohol in the taste. Very clearly a higher alcohol beer. Smells like chocolate more than the taste would imply. Probably would not get again
