153. Boatswain H.L.V. Ale

This is the third and final beer from Trader Joe’s in Portland. 2 of them are exclusive to Trader Joes and unlike the Hefeweizen reviewed previously this one may not have been worth the $2.50 I paid for it. The color is a great dark brown almost black, aroma is not all that pleasant with some malt and hops. Taste is a bit bland with nothing that really stands out. Decent alcohol content so after a 22 oz bottle you certainly feel it. A cheap buzz but not much else from this one.
