3.45/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Long Trail pint glass. Born on date reads 11-3-10.
A - Pours a small white head that dissipated quickly. No lacing around the glass. The beer itself is a reddish amber color, slightly clear. A small amount of sediment of sorts is floating around in the glass.
S - Cascade hops, caramel? faint to the nose.
T - Coppery, hoppy flavors. Malty. Bready towards the end. I"m tasting black licorice bouncing around in here somewhere which is a nice touch with the slight hoppy bitterness.
M - Carbonation is well balanced. Very smooth and drinkable.
D - Overall, a tasty brew though I wouldn't call it overly special. Maybe I'm comparing it too much to a Belhavens. Another solid beer from Long Trail.

I am stunned at just how many and of what kinds of beers are in my backlog. I bought these with every intention of drinking them in season and then things seemed to get away from me. At least, I am catching up at this point.
From the bottle: "HIBERNATOR This robust and malty brew will take the bite from a cold winter night. ENJOY!"; "UNFILTERED WINTER BREW"; "TAKE A HIKE!"
I popped the cap and let fly, watching breathlessly as the pseudo-cascade took place, slowly morphing into two-plus fingers of dense, tawny head with great retention. Color was a brownish-copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was rich and sweet with malt - caramel, cocoa, toffee. Oh my. There are times that I question my buying habits because as a hophead, this is not in my wheelhouse. The head fell in an unusual way, collapsing down and in on itself. Mouthfeel was medium and the richness of the malt almost threw me into diabetic shock! It was tasty, though, more like toffee than caramel. Finish was sweet, but not cloying, so I did not have any problem drinking all of it. This is one that would be more suited for the Winter season, if I were to get it again.
