This is about my 10th rating of a Captain Lawrence beer, and probably 7 of them just describe how bored I am and express the fact that I’m mailing in these ratings. If you’re reading this, you probably have too much free time. Because this is a completely forgettable beer.

Draft @ NotB, Dark brown pour with some light head. Aroma is not so sour, more nutty and doughy malt and some light spices. Flavor is a little bit everywhere, dark fruits, weird spices, and some nut and malt notes.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Tap at EBF. Funny thing about this beer, Scott claims to have never even tried it. Hmmm. The aroma is nutty, some donut, old yeast, very little sour. The flavor is a fun mix of pumpernickel, acetic acid, seaweed, all slightly muddled and murky. I guess if you randomly blend beers without even tasting them this is what you get?

PilsnerPeter (3032) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2010
EBF 2010 Session One: Murky maroon pour with a tan head. Nice aroma- reminiscent of Red Poppy from Lost Abbey- toasted dark malt undertones with notes of raspberry, chewy oak, leather and mild solventy tartness. Slick body with mild carbonation. Toasted dark malt undertones with a tart cherry skin note. Oak and lactic acid give it a nice depth. Residual soft toasted malts and acetic notes on the back. Nice.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
In short: A strange, toasted, fruitless dark sour ale.
How: Tap at Boston Extreme Beer Fest 2010. Night Of The Barrel session.
The look: Cloudy burgundy body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is old attic with some sour notes. Tastes is toasted plain cookies, dusty attic, medium sourness. Something very astringent that resembles tannins. Finish is dry, sour and dusty. Kind of a weird one. The toasted nutty malts and sourness without any fruity flavor was kind of strange. Certainly the less good Captain Lawrence sour ale I’ve ever had. Doesn’t make it a bad beer. I mean, even in a quantum physic convention someone is the dumbest person in the room.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Draft at EBF. Pours a mahogany body with a thin bubbly head. Acidic tannic dark fruit is first off. Hints of raspberries, pepper tones a bit rustic. A light vinous tone and somewhat reminiscent of a sour or oude brune ale. Lacto and a mild fruit tartness. Sharp acidity in the finish that was a bit much.

dogfish120love (1053) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Extreme Beer Fest. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Very sour with notes of coca cola/pepsi. Aroma is barnyard and horseblanket.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Pouring at EBF’s Night of the Barrels. Pours a ruby cola brown with a thin beige head. Roasty, sour, lactic sweetness. A bit nutty at the start. Sour brown malt flavors. Acidic and tart.
