Brewery: Lake Placid
Style: Coffee Stout
Field Report Location: Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal
Tasting Notes: Checking in yet again at my local stop on the C&O – I find today a coffee stout from upstate New York’s Lake Placid Brewing. Bean-To as it goes, was a cool find at a store while on a trip to the area last summer, and I’ve finally gotten around to trying it. This is my first run-in with Lake Placid, and it wasn’t bad. I had high hopes for this beer, so I was a tad letdown when the beer came across as a little overcarbonated and dry. I attribute this to the time from bottle date, which was around a year by the time I tried it. This beer fresh from the tap is likely much better – nonetheless, it had some goo traits that did a decent job saving its score.
