4/30/11. 12oz bottle courtesy JBVatkeens. Cloudy brown pour with basically no head. Horrible oxidized fruity, almost barleywine or old ale aroma with a salty oxidized malty caramel nastiness. Nasty!

12oz bottle, very sweet, almost Barleywine aroma. Weird, party with little redeeming qualities. Lame.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark colden copper/amber color with golden orange hues when held to a light and a frothy one finger yellowish beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.
Slightly toasted caramel malt aroma with hints of toffee, biscuit and faint earthy hops.
Medium bodied and much fuller than expected. Most of the carribean "craft" beers Iíve had so far have been slightly amped up macros/adjuncts but thi beer is pretty complex and well crafted. There a soft, crisp hop flavor up front that provides slight dryness/bitterness which lingers throughout over the sweet malt backbone into a dry finish. The hops are quickly countered mid-palate by a sweet malt backbone with hints of caramel, rye, toffee and biscuit. Very well balanced and although itís darker/heavier than expected, this beer is very quaffable in this tropical climate.

Had this on a boat in St. Thomas in a bottle. I thought it was pretty good, had a nice hint of malt in flavor. It went down rather smooth and was very drinkable.
