looks good, but it seems the font washes out with the water. Perhaps giving the font an outer glow or a better stroke color like white or something.

Default How's this?



And does anyone have an opinion of what a Stout bottled with a splash of Caribbean Run would taste like?

Default Swabs.

Coconut Rum! That was my initial intention. I was afraid it would suck...but if it sounds good to you guys too, I'm in. It is currently #3 on the list but I might make it beside a SMaSH as it will surely be dark enough to forgo the secondary, but I have all the fixen's for the Bananas Foster Dunkle. So that is first.
I WILL post back.
If there is a more exciting hoby...I'll pass. My heart couldn't take it.

Great label how does the print out look?

Chocolate and coconut mixes well, get a Youngs Chocolate Stout and try adding some coconut rum to it to see how well it fares, its all in the name of research

Now that sounds like a righteous brew. Let us know how the rum works.
