A very malty but fairly bland beer with more alcohol presence than it should it have. Could use a hoppier update -- it's too sweet and needs more counteracting bitterness. A malt bomb for sure -- some nice medium crystal maltiness with some finesse, but a bit one-dimensional.

Very nice deep burgundy color. Doesn't drink as thick as it looks. Tastes strong of alcohol but not of malt. The hop profile is very nice and fits the beer very well. Balanced but a bit weak for my tastes.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Pours a rich dark Amber with a creamy head. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts with some earthy hops. Malt is up front in flavor but quickly followed by a nice rounded hop flavor. Great balance to this beer. Creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

Very good English style Strong ale very easy on the pallet and overall a high-quality Ale to come out of Lake Placid.

My second English Strong Alex in two days. Cold weather really helps. The warming feeling is much appreciated. Good mouth feel and smooth taste. It's definitely worth a try.
