theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2012
Pours a very dark brown (not quite black) with a fair light cocoa head and a little lace. Aroma is of sweet malts, some hops. Nice carbonated flavor, dominated by sweet malts, some hop flavor, a little sweet molasses.

kassner (1462) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2012
Cola color and nice head from the bottle as Boatswain HLV Ale. Very typical scottish ale, with a bit more alcohol play, caramel and port and fairly smooth at finish.

twindadplus2 (638) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2012
Bottle from Woodman’s. Pours a dark, reddish brown with a thin film of a tan head. Aroma is molasses and dark grains. Taste is very sweet up front with a bit of roasted malt and light bitterness at the end. Fades to a sweet, nutty finish with minimal carbonation adding to a syrupy feel on the palate. Not bad for the price I suppose but just doesn’t quite come together the way you expect it too.

Panzuriel (1558) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bought at Trader Joe’s under the name Boatswain Heavy Lift Vessel. Pours a medium red brown liquid with a nice thick head of mocha small bubbles. Nose is a little cola with a hint of molasses sweetness. Taste is sweet malt with just a hint of roasting. Body is thinish and not very spectacular. Finishes cleanly with just a lingering amount of good bitters and toffee. For what it is, it’s a very nice beer. High alcohol content a plus.

mansquito (4480) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 18, 2012
Trader Joe’s, DC 650ml ($2.30): Pours on the darker side of brown with a rather wee head. Aroma is a somewhat unbalanced combination of hops and roasted malts, not that it is particularly bad or anything. Taste is slightly on the bitter side of things. Good amount of roastiness. Not a terrible beer, but a somewhat bland bitter brown. In any case, I was expecting way worse.

This brown has a nice aroma with a sweet malty taste to it. Isn’t a bad choice for the price.

Hair6a11 (1436) - Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Bottle; pour is murky brown with a mahogany undertone. Khaki head, albeit modest, with mediocre retention and lacing. The nose is heavy on the caramel, it reminds me of a shitty doppelbock actually. The flavor profile has light bittering hops, heavy on the caramel, Brown sugar. Toffee..... Roast.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours a clear, dense, mahogany brown with an average sized tan head. Sweet nutty malt aroma. Sweet nutty flavor that follows the aroma. Not too bad.
