From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 30, 2014.

The pour is so nice and black with a modest beige head that never goes away completely but leaves plenty of lacing as is dissolves to a ring.

The nose is rye, grain, molasses, caramel sweetness, and earthy hops. That grain does have a distinctiveness compared to the other typical aromas.

Medium body mainly but generally ion the smooth side.

The taste does bring out that rye grain character more than anything else but it is interspersed with sweet molasses or perhaps dark malts. The bitterness is a bit more than mild and it lingers dryly at the end. They did a n ice job with it.

12 ounce bottle from the Farm House Box

Pours pretty much black w/ a large and frothy medium mocha head. head lasts nicely and leaves nice ringed low sheeting and scattered lacing.

Full throttle nose of herbal hops and dark malts n some rye

Palate follows the nose, respectably fueled by dark malts, hint of rye and moderate, again, herbal hops.

Ehhhh, sort of middle of the road, as most Long Trail beers seem to me...

Tight light tan lacing that tops this nearly pitch black hued brew. Sweet toasted grainy nose with rye spiciness and hop resin. Smooth with a snap of crispness, roasted grain is most noticeable at first sip then the toasty and spicy rye character. Enough hops to be considered an IPA? Was hoping for more.

Mixed 12-pack found up in Waterbury, VT. Dated 12-08-13 which is within reviewing range for me.

A- Poured to a snifter from the 12oz bottle with a black body. Light tan head builds up to about two fingers with good retention eventually dying down to a frothy, foamy thick ring. Lace rings and drizzle start at the top of the glass and continues nicely to really coat the snifter.

S- Inviting roasted malts and hops going back and forth with one another. Roast malts remind me of standard Stouts with black grains, cocoa and just a bit of burnt coffee grounds. Hops beyond that with citric orange peel, earthy and floral hints.

T- Things seem to tighten up here a bit and there is less of an obvious dichotomy between the roast and hops, blending occurs. However, the malt base is still inviting as in the nose with notes of burnt grains, cocoa powder, dark coffee grounds and a bit of smoke. Hops mingle the grains with grapefruit, orange zest, floral and slight stone fruit notes.

MF- Light to moderately thick body. Texture is creamy and really foams up on the palate with any agitation. Carbonation at a high, taste bud tingling level but plays nicely with the hops and the bitterness that follows on the palate, both roast and hoppy.

I'm pretty happy with the purchase of this mixed 12 for $12. I have tried all of the beers once and this one for a second time. Flavorful with good malt and hop profiles. Seems like Long Trail is picking things up lately and keeping low prices.

This reveiw is based on a pint quaffed at Great Lost Bear in Portland, Maine.

The appearance is of a dark black body, a veritable glass of ink, if you will, with a moderate head of vanilla froth. There are subtle whiffs of cocoa powder; the palate receives a dappling of malty hoppiness (oxymoronic?) with a semi-sweet bite on the end. While the body can be described as rather light, there is present a mild resinous density. This is pleasant, but not great. If you seek this style, go for the delicatable Wookey Jack, which I have reveiwed.
