Bottle purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Dark orange amber pour, with little head, and not much lacing.

Not much in the aroma. Maybe some caramel.

The flavor is better, but not by much. Caramel, butterscotch, some peat, and oak, but all very muted.

The body is too thin and watery for a "rich winter brew." Medium carbonation, goes down easy.

Overall a miss from Long Trail. Too many flaws.
