Five years later, I look back at all we have gone through to get where we are today and I smile. It has been an amazing journey in one of the greatest industries in the world. We have met a ton of new friends, all in the name of great beer! This beer was brewed to celebrate all the great times we have had and plan on having in the future. Brewed with five different malts and five hop varieties this deep, dark and hoppy ale is meant to be enjoyed with friends. Straight from the captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy! – Scott Vaccaro

Bottle: Poured a deep dark burgundy brown color ale with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of pine and astringent hops with notes of caramel malt with some toffee notes. Taste is a complex mix between some pine and astringent hops with some sweet malt notes with some caramel and toffee notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting though not something I would feel the need to drink on a regular basis.

Sadly this one was infected. Bottle was an immediate gusher. Aroma was brett, nuts, toffee. Taste was overwhelming brett which took over the beer. boo

Gusher, could be infected tough to tell is the aroma is Brett or herbal hops. Great malts, hoppy finish.

Courtesy of Dallas. Pours a nice looking mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up roasted malts, molasses, some chocolate notes, some spicy black licorice followed by a bit more chocolate. The taste has the same general notes but with a modest tart sense too. The mild tartness and roasted malts, molasses, spicy black licorice and chocolate all blend and mix nicely. Nice brew.

Ruby colored brew with musty and complex hop aromas. Nice chewy mouthfeel with caramel and aggressive hop character without harsh notes. Awesome beer!

Bottle at the tasting to celebrate my son’s birth. Thanks to Dallas. Pours a dark red color with a small white head. The aroma is awesome; rich fruits, some roast and smoke. The flavor is similar; akin to a English BW; toffee, sweet fruit, very malty, light smoke. Complex and damn tasty. Awesome, I dig these types of beers. Lots of sweet fruity hops.

Marheb (2130) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2011
Terriblement bien balancé entre la corpulence maltée et le kick parfumé du houblon. Pas très boozy pour 10% mais très sirupeux. Presque parfaite intervention de l’amertume.

Bottle from JW. Deep brown in color with a medium sized khaki head. Hop forward with a hint of citrus in the aroma. Some slight soy sauce, chocolate, and slightly toasty. Maybe this had seen better days before. Rich, bitter dark chocolate dominates the flavor. Some citrus hits towards the finish. Big, full bodied, with a heavier mouthfeel. Interesting, and I can see this being great when fresher, but it just misses for me at this point.
