Thanks to Sam for providing this sample, having thought of me while vacationing in Lake Placid!
Pours a dark brown, with a fizzy, cola-like head that lasts a good, long time. The nose is dominated by dark roasted malts, but bits of dark chocolate and coffee, and a touch of ripe fruit sneak through. The flavor begins with a sweet, fruity character which slowly evolves into a rich, bitter finish. The aftertaste is mainly of bitter hops and lasts for a very satisfying length of time. It's a tad fizzy for my taste, but I'd gladly have another. The ABV wasn't noted on the bottle, and I'm surprised to learn here that it's 7%. Dangerous if not known ahead of time!
