double old thumper

Shipyard’s Double Old Thumper Ale. A 2 of 4. Quite a bit of sweetness, some caramel notes, and almost a medicinal alcoholic finish rears its head in the nose. Drinks with a nicely thick body that is quite smooth, and finishes clean. I expect much more power out of the hops, and the alcohol is just somewhat unpleasant - not hidden behind the rich malt body at all.
