Pirate Noir is our Jamaican rum barrel aged imperial oatmeal stout. This beer takes our already delicious Prairie Noir and adds intense notes of vanilla, coconut, and rum to the beer.

brokensail (15570) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Phil. Black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt, rum, chocolate, and soap on the nose. Charred wood, some booze, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is kind of soapy. A bit of booze, rum, and roast. Dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, and charred oak. Maybe a touch of fruit. Kind of disappointing, particularly next to the other variants.

BrettGT (124) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2016
Aroma of rum, licorice, smoke, burnt bread, wood, a little booze. Pours black with a small tan head. Taste is medium sweet and pretty smokey / umami like. Taste follows the nose pretty much but is less booze and rum forward. Pretty delicious and smooth taste. Medium plus body, oily and silky mouthfeel, soft carbonation, smokey but pleasant finish. Good stuff.

Beergaard (282) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2016
Aged this for a year and oh good lord it is every bit as good (or better) than the first time i had it. Dark as the night and with strong notes of rum, coconut, chocolate and liquorice. Mouthfeel is chewy and thick and tastewise it has strong notes of all above standing aromas + some vanilla and a cakey/fudgy feel. Beautiful.

MarcoDL (3858) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle. Dark oily pour. Rich aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and booze. Taste of salty licorice, vanilla, ripe fruit and a soft thick mouthfeel. Good stuff, but I miss the coconut.
