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.ís (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.

Macegan75 (719) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Sample of a 2009 bottle from John Welsh. Pours a brownish red with slightly lighter colored head and some lacing. the nose is crystal malt, candy sugar and slight fruity ketones, first sip is well balanced but still slightly boozing. I canít imagine how hot this beer must have been two years ago. The finish is sweet but slightly dry. Not bad.
