Dry Dock Signature Series Double Vanilla Porter
Vanilliger recht süßer Antrunk. Erkennbarer, etwas brennender Alkohol, schokoladig. Der Vanille Ton bleibt während die Alkoholigkeit steigt, intensiv, etwas zu süß. Vollmundig, langer, überraschend weicher Nachhall. 10/11/12/12/12/12

Dry Dock Signature Series Cascara Imperial Stout
Pours very deep shade of brown with creamy head. Big aroma, cocoa, dark chocolate, whiskey. Mouth feel is heavy, and a little boozy, which is fine for a whiskey barrel stout. Rich flavors that constantly evolve as it warms, raisin, chocolate, whiskey. This is a good complex imperial stout, and what I like to see in a whiskey barrel aged stout.

The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, coconut, dark fruits, very fruity, apricot, this is exactly what I like in a barley wine, sweet, caramel, barrel is well integrated into the base beer, solid.

Dry Dock Signature Series Bligh’s Barleywine Ale
22oz bottle, shared by alexsdad06. 2013 vintage, with an $18.99 sticker on it. Labeled 10.5%. Big dark fruit, sherry up front, touch of peat in the nose. Oooh, the taste that follows is nicer than the smell, I think. Richer, with nice caramel, vanilla, mild spiciness. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, some heat, mild bite to it. Mild to moderate bitter. Hazy brown color. Minimal head. Medium to bigger body, nice full feel. Good full body. Mild dry finish. Lighter carbonation. Pretty awesome barleywine. If we’re talking fruit, I can see the candied apricot here. Fun beer. I usually don’t care for aged beer, but this guy did alright.

Dry Dock Signature Series Double Coffee Porter
2015 version 10.5 % Jet black color, light tan head. Long lasting head with spotty lacing. Looks extremely good in the glass. Nose is excellent. Coffee, whiskey, oak, vanilla, chocolate fudge, and marshmallow. Great aroma. Taste mirrors nose but slightly thinner. Not as robust or as complex as the nose. Nice but man that is a nice nose.

Aroma is a 10+. Dark rich coffee, vanilla sweetness, oak and booze. Appearance is also off the charts. Shiny sense black color with no head. Taste is everything from the aroma but not as strong.
