Aroma is dark fruits, roasted malts, caramel and light earthiness. Taste is rich sweet malts, plum, raisin and slight funk. Finishes with light tanin and yeastiness. Appearance is a clear dark amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottled, labeled as Boatswain H.L.V. Heavy Lift Vessel. Dark orangey amber with a medium sized, large bubbled off-white head. Bready aroma with some sweet caramel, toffee and sourdough yeast. Tangy, straw and hay flavor with stone slightly toasty wheat. A muddled, doughy mess.

You get want you pay for. Not all breweries know what there doing This is not a good beer. Pours dark brown this is the only thing nice about this beer. It has a wierd metalic flavor, and thats the ony taste I can get from this beer. Dont waste your money on this one. Very dissapointing.

Save your time and money. The beer is horrible. Its cheap for a reason. No quality. ALL THE BEER is watery dish-water. Sure, one can buy this from Trader Joes for a low price, but really, what you get is nothing on par to quality. Id rather put the extra money towards a pint or six pack of something more proven and worthwhile. This beer is made cheap for a reason and its to sell out. The owners, both non brew-masters by the way, just some trust fund rich kids, are slinging this dishwater to steal your money. I mean go on the website, it shows the guy walking out of his Escalade SUV and the interviews with him and the sister "co-owner" show the trust fund babies they are...both siblings are narcissistic and ridiculous. I would give this a zero rating if I could. I mean this is just poser beer. its horrible, sucks, skunk, bad, cheap, watery, smelly, no taste, crap.

"bottled as Boatswain HLV (Heavy Lift Vessel). Dont know why. Kind of a non-descript strong brown ale. Decent malt/hop balance, and if it stopped right there, it would be ok, but there is a pronounced offness to the aroma and flavor, slightly sour and vegetal, that just doesnt let it all come together."
