first beer i get to try while visiting the albany pump station heard great things about this place decided to take a slight detour while spending time upstate

poured out deep red almost like a chestnut brown into my sample glass i asked for a small sampler glass so i could inspect the beer better

aroma was really awesome i smelt lots of burnt or roasted malts in there also some coffee smell and even almonds and cherries too

same in the taste the beer has wonderful balance but you could not get any hops in the nose but now you get the hops in force in the taste this is a really great brown ale

great creamy mouthfeel this beer is really good i think i need to get a growler of it to go for the weekend

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at Albany Pump Station, Albany, NY

A: The beer is hazy very dark red in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short beige head that died down but left lots of patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the nutty malt flavors are a little stronger and seem to intensify as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice nutty flavors. It would pair very well with a meat dish.

Poured on-tap at the Pump Station, the beer was served in a shaker pint. Slightly hazed hazelnut color with a thin, filmy, light tan head. Clingy all over the glass. Nose of toffee rich and sweet, with a touch of roasting. Flavors reveal hints of chocolate, with a toffee backbone and hops bitterness. Very well balanced. Light bodied, with a clean, crisp finish. The aftertaste is rich, sweet, and roasted. Very good beer and very sessionable.
