COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Sweet, dusty, chalky nose, lots of roast, lots of ash. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lots of chocolate, some chalk, some plum. Meh.

750 ml bottle. Pours black that allows no light to pass with a moderate tan head that lasts through the first third of the glass and leaves partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of pine, malt, brown sugar and mild roast. The flavor begins with a solid dose of malt that is lightly sweet and is followed by an equally solid dose of piney hops that is somewhat resinous and retains the mild sweetness of the malt. The bitterness, while strong, is not overdone and does not linger excessively. Nearly full bodied. Very enjoyable ale.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt but also lots of sweet malt and alcohol. Flavor of warming alcohol and roasted malt notes. A solid hoppy, citrusy malt base.. It is like a black ASA (vs IPA). The 10% is quite evident and this is a strong beer! An unusual style choice (IMO) for CL’s anniversary beer, but very enjoyable. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
750 capped bottle from PUB’N. Pours deep brown with 3-finger khaki head. Nose is very earthy and peaty roasty dark malt, resiny hops. Tastes rich, very earthy, piney hoppy, a bit on the cloying side, very malty, with a lot of complexity and a big depth of flavor. Gets a bit hot late, and the IBUs overtake the malt somewhat.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 2/19/11

Aroma: The nose has some coffee, roasted malts, big hop presence too
Appearance: This one pours a pitch black color with a small head
Flavor: The taste has a balance of big roasty maltiness, some sweetness, and some good bitterness
Palate: This beer has a pretty decent body to it, full enough, and drinks rather nicely
Overall Impression: This beer was quite enjoyable. A nice way to celebrate 5 yrs, glad I got to try it so quickly after the release. In general, I like what Captain Lawrence is doing, and I hope the next 5 years produce as many good beers as the first 5.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2011 FIRST RATING of this beer! On tap at Birdsall House. Now this was very interesting, and pretty unusual. Flavor is complex, with notes of coffee, tobacco, esters, sweetness, and hops. It is almost like it can’t decide what it wants to be - maybe a coffee doppelbock? Whatever, it is good - very good.
