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.

Appearance: poured a dark brown with a tint of burnt red.
Aroma: starts out with a hint of bourbon. It's not subtle but not excessive. You know it's there. Then the malty sweetness, kind of like some baked sweet bread.
Taste: the light bourbon comes up first. Then the malty sweetness comes through. Slightly bready with brown sugar. The mild bourbon persists till the finish with a slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium-bodied and smooth.
Overall: love the bourbon in this beer. It's there but doesn't overpower. One of those beer where you could pour another.

12oz bottle (bottled on 05FEB16)
Cloudy chestnut brown body with virtually no head, just a slight tan clinging bubble ring leaving no lacing.
Aroma is bourbon and toast.
Flavors match with a sugar sweet burnt touch that wakes me out of my enjoyment.
Feel is lighter than expected, medium carbonation, but still creamy.

I may have Had a dozen of these over the last five years. It is one of my favorite American Browns.
It may be the subtle bourbon/vanilla/oak flavoring that sets this apart. It certainly is the sweet malt that has just enough hops to balance the ale so it is not cloying.
