Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 A great beer to grab after a day on the slopes in the Northeast Kingdom. Great chilled, I always bring back a case or 2 when coming back from skiing.

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Had in Vermont. Cloudy caramel-brown colour with a beige creamy head and nice lacing. Big caramel nose with a little sourness. This shows more in the taste. Probably infected and diacetyl aromas. Not a fan of this one.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Ruddy, dark reddish brown with an initially nice top. Musty aroma rife with caramel malt. Drinks with a muddy, heavy toffee note, and throw in some roasted nuts. (#5827, 10/14/2014)

bursprak (664) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from recent Secret Santa. Pours murky amber with some head. Nose and taste has some orange, malty sweetness and some weird bitterness. Not that good...

AdamJackson (2689) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Dark red murky. Nose is weak and chestnuts. Taste is mediocre some cherry and oak and roaster rye and weak malt backbone

nimbleprop (4984) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Full disclosure, I had two 12oz bottles and they were fairly different. One 12oz bottle was a standard amber ale, malt on the nose, some caramel too, a little orange. Flavor was the same, very standard, some fall fruit, some caramel, malt, orange. Dry finish. The second bottle was clearly infected, vinegar on the nose, red grape, some stale malt, some dried citrus peel. Flavor has a shot of vinegar, some light butyric acid, stale malt, apple cider. What I assume is the uninfected beer was fine, not great. The infection is worrisome though.

Slipstream (2042) - USA - NOV 23, 2013
The colorful label references Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Foamy brown pour. It tastes of citrus and coffee, with some homebrew cellar funk and tang, cola, and walnuts. There is a yeasty, quasi-Belgian aroma. Pretty good.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle filched from my in-laws’ refrigerator after their trip to Vermont. Pours a pretty dark reddish-chestnut, hazy, especially at the bottom of the bottle. Small head. Nose is tea-like with notes of fruit and some esters. Some grain/metallic notes. Taste has some tannic qualities and all around meh-ness to it.

radarsock (944) - Vermont, USA - JUL 4, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 $8.75 for the 6pack, which was bought from the Wal Mart in Barre, but technically, it’s actually located in Berlin. Go figure, I certainly had to. To undersized snifter, it pours a rusty prune light brown, showcasing an off-plaque fizzy head barely a fingernail in length. Tastes and smells of tree bark, walnuts, raspberry syrup, and amber malt extract. Not the best that Vermont has to offer, but also not the worst, either. Drinkable.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Dégustée en fût chez "The Reservoir Restaurant & Taproom" à Waterbury, VT. De couleur ambrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucré aux petites notes rôties, léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (agrumes) et de noix. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés aux petites notes rôties avec des notes de pain et de caramel doux puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des notes de noix. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes de noix et de grains sucrés. (1er mai 2013)
