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?

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
