I like this beer. The price is right and the taste was much better than I expected.
The color of the H.L.V. was dark brown with a light red tint seen when held to the light.
The smell was a very soft sent of malt. The taste had a strong malt flavor that hides the hops until the finish. The carbonation was light. This beer is fairly sweet and the taste lingers.
I would buy it again.

Boatswain H.L.V. Ale has a thick, spongy, cream-colored head, a dark brown, bubbly, opaque appearance, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy, dark-roasted barley malt or brown bread crust, and the flavor is of that element, with strong, straight-forward bitterness and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Boatswain H.L.V. Ale finishes rich, sweet, and semi-wet. Overall, this one is surprisingly good. I recommend it! RJT

650ml bottle with no date. $2 CHEAP
Dark brown/amber, mocha cap with some sticky lace on the glass. It has the traditional Minhas big beer scent (burnt band-aids and rubbing alcohol) with some caramel and english hops. big buttery sweetness, bitter english (floral, slight pine) hops, an alcohol infused finish. Malts are generic; sweet, dark, mixing with the hops into an oak bitterness. getting those dry leaves, man...
budget strong ale
