A growler filled at the brewpub while en route to Cooperstown on 1-Aug-08.

A: The is a dark cola brown, a glass of coke without the vigorous soda carbonation. There never was much head and a miniscule band around the mouth is all that remains.

S: The aroma is thick and malty, a meal in a glass. Thick nuttiness and intense caramel mix with a savory smoke scent and the lightest touch of buttery oak.

T: The taste is full of the same notes as the nose but the flavors are not as intense. Dark malts that could almost pass for an American stout greet you witha roasted flavor that doesn't lose the caramel. Smoke is faint but does reveal itself several times through a sip. Also floating just below the surface is a soft buttery oak element. Both smoke and oak are much more noticeable in the finish. The more this ale sits on my palate, the more it reminds me of a wee heavy.

M: Thick and filling, this ale throws lots of big flavors at you. The light smoke and fleeting oak only add to the happening.

D: Am I the only fan of this beer? I can't believe that it continues to fall under the radar. This small brewpub just outside of Williamsport has created a winner.
