Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a medium off-white/light brown head. Aroma is toasty malt and a lot of raisin, smells Belgian. Taste is mild sweet, medium bitter, with a good amount of alcohol for 7%. Finish is dry. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. An ok beer. cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2012

2016.11.13-12oz bottle in Keeseville NY bar
No detailed review, but this is surprisingly pretty good. Reminds me of several things I've had in he "black saison" category.

Head seems to disappear too quickly for my liking but a fine brew besides this, great balance robust flavors. Taste of Carmel just the right blend of hops. BOM club selection the best of the 4 I have received this month. agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Dark brown color, with a reddish tint......almost completely opaque. Creamy head......somewhat of a roasted malt aroma. Malty taste up front......very crisp mouthfeel. Finishes with a slightly strong back and a bittersweet aftertaste.

12 fl oz bottle empty a dark garnet color enlish style ale. Very thick and overbearing malt with some hops evening it out. A solid ale from this adirondack brewery. beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Deep amber brown color with red tint. Foamy off-white head. Aroma was crisp hop, sweet and estery, and sugar malts. Flavor was bitter fruity hops, with kiwi and berry, mixed with bready wheat and brown sugar. Bitter finish. OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Poured from a 12oz bottle a clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, some caramel, and just a hint of hops. Flavor was a good roasted malt with a light hop bitterness in the finish. popephred (268) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2008
Beer of the Month Club: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a russet-brown body, topped with a light tan head which mostly diminished. Sweet to the taste, but not cloying, with a quick bitter bite with minimal aftertaste. Aroma was a mild hops, not as malty as I though it should be, though not unpleasant. This is a very satisfying ale with a warm body and full taste. I will look for this beer again, and thank my Beer of the Month club for the sample. swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
A new beer to the S. Jersey market. Pours a deep red color with not much of a head. The hops mix nicely with the malt to give it an alluring aroma. The strong hop presence gives this beer a strong taste.
