Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep in the darkest depths of Rock Lake dwells a great saurian known today as Rocky. The legend of Rocky is old. The ancient inhabitants of Aztalan warned of the beast by building a giant serpent mound at the lake's edge. The early residents of Lake Mills were forewarned of a guardian placed in its lake to protect its sacred stone tepees. And history tells of numerous encounters with Rocky, who became a source of great worry and fear. Although not seen for over a century, divers still experience a feeling of dread and being watched. Enjoy Rocky's Revenge, our offering to this legendary protector of Tyranena.

Dark amber body; one-finger thick head. A bit of nutty aroma; some roasted grain quality. Excellent malted grain flavor; some brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Medium body; smooth; semi-sweet mouthfeel.

A solid brown ale, malty with a nice touch of rich sweetness, nicely balanced with a mild hop bitterness.

$ 12.83 (Including tax)/four pack ($ 0.269/oz) at Chalet Party Shoppe, Middlebury, IN.
Bottled Mar 2017. Store at 42 degrees. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester king snifter.
Aroma – chocolate and bourbon, but the bourbon is not overpowering.
Head – average (Maximum 3.8 cm, aggressive pour), light tan, average density, short retention, diminishing to a two mm ring and a partial layer.
Lacing – none.
Body – dark reddish-amber, clear.
Flavor – initially rather harsh bourbon which smooths into vanillin from the oak. The chocolate from the nose is not present. Malt is strictly in the background. However, when warmed in the mouth, the chocolate appears. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate – medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Actually a decent take on a brown ale. The partial bourbon barrel aging dispels some of the sweetness typical of brown ales. The lack of lacing is typical of BBA brews.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.25, Palate 3.75, Overall 4.
