I was surprised to see this at Rob's World of Beers in Wichita and I've always been a fan of Deadliest Catch so it was impossible to resist.
Nice looking beer. Very burnt amber (not quite red) color with towering sticky khaki head which maintains its froth to the end of the glass making its mark at each sip.
The heavy buttery bisquit, toffee, and somewhat floral/grassy hop nose grabs your attention making it clear that this beer may extend beyond expectations.
The flavor reflects the aroma with heavy hitting bread dough, sweet butter laden toffee/caramel, and a mild herbal hop spike at the end. The sweetness of this beer goes a little too far for me by the time the (unshared) bottle is empty.
Nice velvety slick feel for the style accomplished with its carbonation.
Overall, I'm very glad I picked this up. Very good beer for the price and a portion of the proceeds go to the Fisherman's Fund which helps cover medical expenses of Alaskan fisherman not covered by insurance when injured on one of the most dangerous jobs around.

A: Cloudy orange brown with 2 fingers of cappucinno beige head, sea foam like lacing. Lots of small floating particles within, no visible carbonation.
S: Caramel malts, like the kind of caramel you get on a sundae, malt bread, deep rich malts like a milkshake. A touch of molasses. I actually think a smell the ocean. Also some light fruitiness like banana.
T: Rich sweet and malty with a little dull bitter hop quality on the end. Caramel, a touch of molasses and a touch of banana in there.
M: Thick substantially pulpy body, with medium low carbonation.
O: Depth of texture and flavours all highlighting the malts. Almost borderline double bock, though not as heavy or sweet its getting there. Really well done. Wasn’t expecting such a unique quality in this beer.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 26, 2014.
Medium to darker amber colored pour with a fluffy off-white head that stays on top for the entire session. Moderate clarity.
The aroma has a solid sweet and roasted malt backbone with some earth, soil, and pine expressing themselves as well. One thing about the malts is that I can almost p[ick up the fresh malt wort.
Medium to bolder body but also quite smooth.
Roasted caramel malts are up front on this one as the hop bitterness trickles in more and more with each sip eventually lingering at the finish. Solid.
