out of bottle this was a dissappointment. Little malt flavor even when served at correct temperature. Very thin. Dark red color not matched by depth of flavor. On tap my recollections of this brew more positive.

Pours brown with very slight head. Not much of a nose, but what there is consists of a nutty malt aroma. The nose carrier over to the taste - nutty, caramel malt present, with some bitterness on the finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color, with a reddish tint......almost completely opaque. Creamy head......somewhat of a roasted malt aroma. Malty taste up front......very crisp mouthfeel. Finishes with a slightly strong back and a bittersweet aftertaste.

Poured from a 12oz bottle a clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, some caramel, and just a hint of hops. Flavor was a good roasted malt with a light hop bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Birra molto particolare di difficile inquadratura. Profumata e fruttata sia al naso che al palato, dopo una riveduta ne si apprezza l’equilibratura e la buona beverinità. Ottimo corpo e gusto amaro abbastanza pronunciato.

12 fl oz bottle empty a dark garnet color enlish style ale. Very thick and overbearing malt with some hops evening it out. A solid ale from this adirondack brewery.
