COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This barrel aged stout is rich with the flavors of molasses and spices of the East Indies and the Caribbean, the same spices that enriched the coffers of empires (and pirates) during the 17th and 18th centuries. Including allspice, black pepper, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and mace, this true "pirate stout" is as black as coal and will put you in the right holiday spirit. Avast, matey, and a ho ho ho!

Taster at Holiday Ale Festival. I like ginger, but this was ginger, paired with ginger, with a side of ginger. A little overpowering.

Holiday Ale festival 2012 - Dark black in color, clear with a thin head. Big spices and tons of malt. I do taste lots of pepper and cinnamon in the flavor and finish. Very interesting beer.

Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest 2012... Poured dark brown, near black, with a light brown head. Aroma had a ton of gingerbread spice, sort of like the cookie. Tasted a bit tart with vinegar and such Noticeable middle eastern cooking spices too. A bit much on the palate. The aroma was the saving grace here as taste wise it didn’t stand up.
