"Oh Lord above send down a dove with beak as sharp as razors,
To cut the throats of them there blokes what sells bad beer to sailors."
- Lyrics from A Sailor's Prayer
|Haul Out Stout (by K. Walters)|
I brewed a hearty cherry stout ale on the day that Island Bound was hauled out to mark (and commiserate?) the official end of our 2012 sailing season. "Haul Out Stout" seems like a fitting name for this beer. Now that fermentation, bottling, and bottle conditioning are complete, we cracked open a few bottles recently and had a taste. Memorable and delicious...just like our sailing season!
