Had this at the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery in the Adirondacks and it was excellent. $3.50/pint. Poured a dark mahogany with an inch off-white foamy head leaving a consistent amount of lacing along the glass. Smell was sweet and malty. Taste was also sweet, slightly bitter, with a good amount of carbonation. for the 7.00% abv, this was an exceptionally easy beer to drink. thumbs up.

Serving type: on-tap

3.25/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - A rigorous pour yields a 1 finger head that doesn't last too long. Color is a mostly opaque blackish amber. Looks kinda like a coke. Lacing is moderate.

S - Dark smoky malt. Alcohol.

T - Licorice and dark malt up front with a dry bitter finish. Alcohol is certainly evident.

M - A bit overcarbonated for the style. I felt like it amplified the bitterness making for a rather unbalanced beer.

O - A strong ale that doesn't really shine in the flavor department. It is certainly strong in some aspects but unbalanced.
