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.

Single, 12 oz bottle just purchased for $1.99 from Buy Rite on Oak Tree in South Plainfield...
Pours a deep, dark, ruby-red colored hue with a minimal foamy head that quickly receded and left a small amount of lacing...
A not-too-impressive aroma replete with rich malts, caramel, and candied sugars bursting forth...
Taste was average to say the least - not too exciting or spectacular at all... heavy on the malts, low on the hops, without too much balance here... Flavors were rendolent of sweet, dried malts, caramel, a tinge of vanilla, slight sugars, and some figs...
Slick, watered-down mouthfeel without too much going on in this department...
Drinkability was average to say the least...
All in all, a less-than-mediocore brew...
Nothing special...
