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.

Head seems to disappear too quickly for my liking but a fine brew besides this, great balance robust flavors. Taste of Carmel just the right blend of hops. BOM club selection the best of the 4 I have received this month.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
A new beer to the S. Jersey market. Pours a deep red color with not much of a head. The hops mix nicely with the malt to give it an alluring aroma. The strong hop presence gives this beer a strong taste.

Beer of the Month Club: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a russet-brown body, topped with a light tan head which mostly diminished. Sweet to the taste, but not cloying, with a quick bitter bite with minimal aftertaste. Aroma was a mild hops, not as malty as I though it should be, though not unpleasant. This is a very satisfying ale with a warm body and full taste. I will look for this beer again, and thank my Beer of the Month club for the sample.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours brownish with ruby hig lights. It has a tall dense head leaving fine sticky lacing. Well carbonated too. Aroma is strong of rich malts and some molasses. There is also a toffee sweetness too. Taste is of complex malts with good character. Some roasted malts come through as well as wood and leather and a finish similar to licorise. This beer has a medium feel with a bitter and slight alcohol warming. I was pleasently surprized with this beer. I was expecting something like an amber ale, but this style took me back a bit.

Dark pour with a nice tan head. Taste of dark fruits and mild roasted malt. A nice drink overall.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - JUL 12, 2013
POURS A MEDIUM brown with an average tan head. This beer starts sweet but a un tasty bitterness quickly follows. The malt is strong and there is some sour dark fruits with bit of earthiness and roasted flavors.
