Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a rich, maroon-ruby with a sturdy white head. Strong hop aroma, some citrus, and plenty of sweet malts as well. Very sweet flavor, some dark fruit notes. Hints of bitterness sneak through the extremely sweet character of the beer. Body is thick and somewhat syrupy, with a lingering sticky finish. Really intense and really good.
