4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Vert dark brown color. You can see light through it but it may be the darkest brown beer I have seen.
Smell: Sweet somewhat fruity smell.
Taste: Very smooth and drinkable. I’m imprerssed, a received a mixed 12 pack as a gift.
Mouthfeel: A little on the heavy side, but it is very drinkable.
Overall: I would buy this agian, good during the winter months up north. This was 2nd beer I tried in mixed 12 pack, the best so far and my guess the best in the pack.
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 12 oz bottle shared by wihorock via Tmoney99. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, lightly nutty, some toasted malt, light bitterness, ok for what it is. Tmoney99 (15034) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2017

200517. Taster from AIBA stand at GABS in Melbourne. His is my first and maybe only beer from this brewery and it was certainly a tasty one. Deep red copper colour in the glass it looks inviting. Full bodied and finishes strong. GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours a dark cola color with a thick, foamy, tan head that stays forever. Generous lacing. Nose is grain with molasses notes and a hint of anise. Taste is well-balanced, but on the sweeter side. Nice, slightly dry, bitter finish. Tasty brew.

On tap at brewery in Lake Placid, so not the bottled or canned version contract brewed in Utica, which is not the same tasting beer. For a long time one of my favorite (I’ve been going to the brewery since it opened). Dark brownish-red in color with a healthy tan head. Aroma is of molasses, coffee, dark chocolate, following by the flavor that is all of the above plus rye bread, carmelized sugar and hops. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied; there is a clean finish to it. When I first drank it years ago, I thought the 7 percent brew was much heartier than I now considered it, which I attribute to years of drinking more assertive beers. Still one of my favorites. mnoud (318) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2016

No detailed review, but this is surprisingly pretty good. Reminds me of several things I've had in he "black saison" category.
