Deep amber pour with a creamy head. A deep aroma flows with tones of caramel and toffee with and underneath of light spice. The body is extra smooth and heavy strongly supporting a buttery toffee flavor which predominates a mellow bitterness. Very tasty and well-balanced with a creamy finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Cloudy amber almost ruby, two finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Lots of malt, caramel, toffee, some grapes with acidity or alcohol in there.

T-Malt dominated, caramel, toffee, grapes, buttery and cherries.

M-Medium bodied with little carbonation.

O-Cooperstown most flavorful brew but the balance and all of the other factors do not make this the best.

Clear looking mahogany brown with a loose, thin tan head. This beer doesn't have great lacing and looses its head relatively quickly. The beer smells like a strong ale with a sweet malt base and some biting alcohol. There is a touch of fruitiness in the nose, but it's not delicate and refined like a Belgian. The taste is slightly sweet toasty/chocolatiness with some biting alcohol. The mouthfeel is all wrong and completely off balance. Overall I would suggest that you do not seek out this beer because clearly it's not made for the general beer drinker...it's made for someone interested in sucking down an unrefined mess of beer-related flavors.

Huh if I were to guess I would have figured it was a red ale.

A - Deep ruby hue (red) with about a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head.

S - Slight toffee, caramel, bubblegum, maybe some fruity yeasts, and a tiny bit of nutty smell.

T - Far from offensive but it just came off as a sweet red ale. Taste of mild nutty then fruity yeasts with mild bubblegum. It was good but could have used more ABV or hops to truly be a strong ale.

M - Medium bodied for what it was it drank rather well.

Overall with better examples of the style I am torn to hate this but it did drink very well for a Strong ale.
