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 (Ive 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.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light messy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell started off with rich sweet milk chocolate and a lingering bitter dark chocolate to balance. Light dark fruits mesh in and around the chocolate flavors. The taste was moderately sweet combining the chocolate with the dark fruits nicely. A light lingering sweet fruity to chocolate aftertaste leads into a sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed pretty subdued yet still good and lead to a semi-smooth almost creamy feel. Overall, tastes and smells great on a cool Summers evening, not a crushable beer but looking at it for what it is and wants to be it works. Id have again.
