4.2/5 rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
cocoa head of moderate stature (about one finger), moderately clingy while showing ample legs, tidal bubbles, light avoids passing through this beer like the knicks avoid wins... pitch black with some effervescence bubbling upon the surface like a gently simmering cauldron
dark rum, heavy molasses, rum booze, brown sugar, if someone plopped this in front of me and only had my honker to tell what it was.. ? I would not have guessed beer, really reminds me of the dark rums of the Caribbean, fantastic
barley-wine-ish with really oily booze that coats your entire gaping maw, a velvety sipper, subtle carbonation, hints of cocoa roam in the back bathed in molasses (but not overly sweet or heavy notes of the molasses), it almost drinks like a cross between a porter and a barleywine, without heavy notes in either direction... so you have the smoothness of a good porter and then the booze kick (and you know it) of a BW, weight wise this drinks lighter than you would think... and man that is dangerous.. or not (depends on the night really)
tasty as balls..err, I mean damn tasty! really good brew, fantastic temperament meaning it just drinks easy and has a great flavor punch and quite a kick... a winner from carton, easily the best thing I have had from this brewery to date

Orange wax growler. Poured into a FFF/DMC snifter 6/21/2014.
A- Well, this one was a gusher when Roger opened this one up. All the foam in the world rose out of the bottle and coated the ground. But well. This is a dark brown bodied beer with a two finger dark mocha head with fine retention. Bits and bits of lacing.
S- Roast malt, milk chocolate, spices and sweet rum. Smells well-bought together in terms of its components.
F- More sweet rum barrel on the palate that seems to get on the verge of being overshadowing, but there is still a nice roast malt character with milk chocolate and cold pressed coffee, a little bit of what seems to be nutmeg or cinnamon to round things out.
M- Medium in body, silky and smooth. Fairly boozy.
O- Enjoyed this one despite the fact that this was a gusher. There didn't seem to be any off-flavours or signs of infection, so perhaps it was a very vigorous growler fill?

3.91/5 rDev -4.4%

A: Black in color with no transparency, barely no head at the top with no lacing to go along with it.
S: Almost all rum on the nose with slight hint of brown sugar and caramel, very dark rum all over the place, felt like I was smelling captain morgan.
T: Lots of rum on the tongue as well with a strong backbone of sugar, dark roasted malts somewhere in there as well. Not a bad flavor but lots of booze all over.
M: Sticky, lots of carbonation and a medium bodied mouthfeel.
O: Overall not a bad beer from a local brewery but lots going on here and lots of rum flavor on this brew, definitely a Ship wrecker.
Serving type: on-tap
