Thanks to Glyn, who picked this up in his travels. The bottle I had was labeled Boatswain Heavy Lifter - some MIlwaukee brewery I haven’t heard of before. The aroma starts off yeasty, but gets better. The flavor is roasty and sugary. OK.

dmschefke (566) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours an amber orange with thick off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma of herbal and citrus hops, strong toasted malt backbone, slight nutty character, caramel, and very slight bread. Flavor matches well and you can definitely count me in the pleasantly surprised category. For less than $2, this would be hard to beat.

IrishBoy (3822) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bomber from Trader Joe’s Bakersfield labeled Boatswain Heavy Lift Vessel Ale. Nose is pecans, caramel, biscuit, and sweetness. Clear brown with a big, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, nutty, and a hint of bitter, smoke, and licorice. Pretty decent brown ale especially considering the buck ninety nine pricepoint!

thornecb (4354) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Dark medicinal and caramel aromas. Soft with bitter herbs and caramel front to back. Lasting bitter medicine finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours near black with reddish hues and a thin wispy tan head. Notes of chocolate, resinous, piney, raisin, spice. Full bodied, moderately sweet with soft carbonation. Better than expected.
