Aroma is roasty and lightly fruity - tiny bit of lacing - a well-hopped English Strong - tiny bit of spice - a bit lacing in body and complexity - this seems very similar to their 46er IPA, the only real difference is the roasty quality to the flavor and aroma and the slightly higher maltiness.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of rudolf via Secret Santa. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, some mustiness, light grass, and a hint of fruit. Pours a hazy brownish-red with a small off-white head with fair retetntion. Starts of with moderate chocolate and caramel, but quickly turns to sour fruitiness in the finish. I doubt the sourness was intended, but I actually kind of like it. Hints of nuttiness in the finish behind all the sourness. If it wasn’t for the nuttiness in the finish, it would somewhat be like a flemish sour. I’m sure this is a "bad" bottle, but I think the sourness probably makes the beer better in my opinion.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low I’ve had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.

jgb9348 (4770) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Dark amber colour with a thin white head. The aroma was pretty fragrant and pretty malty. The aftertaste was potent and lasted quite a long time. I sampled the Lake Placid 46'er IPA and hated it, but figured I'd give this a tasting (blind--not from a review), and it turns out I was pretty impressed by Lake Placid this time around. Try this beer and not the 46'er IPA. I tasted this on tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

(Draught) Poured dark brown and almost clear with medium sized and white head. Aroma was of malts and liquorice. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Tasted of malts, liquorice, sweetness, hops, lightly fruity and bitter. Sweet, malty and lightly bitter aftertaste.

berkshirejohn (4576) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. Chestnut brown with a thin beige head; spicy malt aroma; some purple fruit from the roasted malts, and some powdered chocolate as well; and then a dry, nutty, finish. Not really a recognisable English style, but rather pleasant.

nuplastikk (4566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2009
12oz bottle. Red-black color, opaque. Deep malty aroma with a hint of brandy. Sweet malty taste, balanced by some minimal hops and a warming finish. Some chocolate and coffee tones, but a little more spicy and pungent than typical. Very drinkable and smooth, a pretty good beer.
