joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2003
Opaque chocolate brown. Light brown head. Malty, nutty aroma w/ light alcohol. Body is a little on the light side of medium, perhaps over-carbonated. Nutty, caramel flavour w/ some chocolate & roastiness & a decently bitter, lightly alcoholic finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a dark brown color with some lacing and a malted smell. Taste is somewhat smoked malt and finishes with a moderate bitterness. Overall an ok beer, but nothing too special.

Gorbalev (2905) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2004
Buffalo Brewfest 04. Dark brown pour, hops and malt in aroma. Taste was creamy at first with a decent malt body and noticeable, but hardly overwhelming hops - a sweet taste. Had no idea it was 7%. Good beer.

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours with a five+ finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation. Nose is faintly malty. Medium bodied. Starts and finishes with a balance of malt and hops, the high ABV is not noticable. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

This beer goes down pretty smooth at 7% ABV. It has a good blend of malt and hops, with a nice finish.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Aah Lake Placid, home to the greatest American sports moment, which has nothing to do with this beer. Brown ale characteristics in aroma and taste, would not of guessed this at 7%. Substantial body, nice.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Almost red color with aromas of spicy, malt and smoke. Taste is mostly molasses, malt and hop bitterness. Vey smooth taste and a bitter dry finish.

Got this from Chazy, great. Poured dark reddish brown, with a good, creamy head. Taste was a little watery, but very drinkable. Maybe a session brew?
