i forget sometimes how much i don't like this beer. i see long trail on sale occasionally and buy it hopin' it'll be better than last time. i mean it's from vermont--so it's 'sposed to be good. maybe i just don't like the style.
i find it flavorless. weird but true. a faint maltiness. no hops whatsoever. and a bad aftertaste.
doesn't leave a lot of lace on the glass.
i have to remember i don't like this.

A - A dark amber, hazy in the middle. Decent head that laces moderately. But pretty minimal overall.
S - Dark fruits and hops. Almost smells like a dubbel.
T - Meh. Plum, raisin, plum, peaches, and a some cheap malt taste. There's flavor here but it's kind of musty and gross. Definitely a high-profit beer. These are some low quality input ingredients.
M - A bit light. Would benefit from being a bit heavier.
D - A great beer if you're in high school. Otherwise, a pretty shallow offering. Kinda gross. Real musty. Not fresh tasting at all. Imagine licking a storm cellar that's never been frequented in 20 years. Yeah.

12oz into a snifter.
Pours a caramel/amber color with an almost non-existent head which disappears instantly to leave a thin topping. Smells caramel, some cereals, little earthy notes, slightly herbal at the back. Flavors are very mild and clean. Similar to the nose and, in my opinion, not so enjoyable. Moderate carbonation with low bitterness. I didn't like this one. Wonder if it's a bad bottle or I just don't like the style...

A- Nice rich color, like a peach toned iced tea. Low head very little head retention with moderate lace.
S- There is a very boozy front note with hints of nuts. Very light, slightly watery on back end.
T- Very light flavor, A little malty on front end. gets a bit watery in the middle and finishes light and slightly bready.
M- Light, no coating at all and the watery middle is not very desirable.
O- A very light beer, the wateriness is not pleasant. The malt flavors would be nice but they die out far to quickly and there is no complexity to the flavor. Not very drinkable

On tap in a shaker pint. See-thru copperish amber with an off-white head a finger or so in height. Good retention, scattered patches of drippy lacing.
For an alt, especially a sticke version, this is pretty tame stuff. Smells of caramel malt and little else. Taste is again pretty malty, but there's just not a lot going on here. Buttery and bready with very light leafy and baked apple notes. Clean and crisp for sure- obviously a brew constructed with care- but not something I'd revisit.

This brew is an amber color with a two finger white head.
Its aroma is faint, but is malty sweet.
The flavor starts out roasty and incredibly sweet but is given some balance by a little bit of hop character near the finish. There is also a slight alcohol warmness in the flavor as well.
Mouth feel is medium bodied, but semi thick from the sugar, a bit syrupy for me.

a little too malty for me, but not an undrinkable beer. as a strong ale, this one is pretty good. somewhat sweet malt and a smooth rich consistency. i can't say i would get it again, but it was not the worst strong ale i have had
