Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is the one beer that our brewers and I would take to that mythical deserted island if we could only bring one Marshall Wharf beer. Huge malt backbone matched with huge amounts of hops.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

a: Beautiful thick two finger foam that sticks to the glass as you drink. Very clear amber.

s: Extremely powerful hop aroma. Citrus with hints of pine.

t: Lots and lots of hops, only after the beer warms up you can start tasting some malts. Not much caramel more biscuit notes. Pine taste but it fades to a buttery/diacetyl taste.

m: Very bitter, the big alcohol warms your mouth. Medium to High body with medium to low carbonation.

o: Big beer with lots of flavor. A little too many which takes away from the beer. The flavor is not as clean as I would like. It is an average imperial IPA

Serving type: bottle

Marshall Wharf Cant Dog
16oz can, packaged 11/26/13 (?)

Pours a nice deep amber, very good clarity. Nice one-finger head retains beautifully. (4.5)

Aroma is estery, with some fruity hops. Diacetyl lurking in the background. (3)

Flavor has a lot of booze, bitterness, caramel malt and hop resin. Notes of stressed fermentation include: acetaldehyde, mild diacetyl and light mercaptan. It's hoppy but too many flaws cloud the good flavors. Medium carbonation, slick feel. (2, 3.5)

Not very clean, and not a great example of the style, but drinkable if very cold. I've had this stuff in much better shape than this. I probably would have liked it more if I just drank it straight from the can. (3)

Serving type: can
