drowland (7712) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
9/21/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour, some ruby under the light, with a small tan head that fades fast and doesn’t lace at all. Big fruity aroma with dark fruits, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart fruits, roast, and earthiness. Not bad!

Nose: crisp , clean and very refreshing. Solid blend of leafy , citric hops with malt. Highly aromatic with hint of grapefruit.8-
Flavor/Palate : Mid bodied. Straightforward brown ale with solid hop feel to balance. Simple yet with good depth. Slight warmth with well rounded finish. Lake Placid brewery offered pleasant surprise for me today. 14+/20

PorterPounder (6893) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Sit, Ubu, sit - wasn;t that from Mad about you? I digress....Excellent strong ale - elements of Fuggles Hops - reminds me of a strong bitter. Nice, dark tea colored appearance with a mocha colored head. Pleasant chocolately aroma. Thick mouthfeel - gets better as it warms.
