Legend had is Captín Krunkles is the most feared pirate on the high seas. No one has seen him, his ship, or the great beer his band of pirates drinks has lived to tell about it. Until now. Made with a bombardment of hops to defeat your tastebuds in battle and all the black malt you can stand before walking the plank, this Black I.P.A. will make it worth going down with the ship.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 17, 2010, also sampled via a bottle at our October 2010 club meeting. A definite dark brown, practically black beer with a light brown head. Looks a little thin for such a dark beer. Aroma of light roasted malt and light hops. In the mouth, itís very smooth. Flavor is a little weak and smooth, but with a bitter finish.

brigg (532) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2010
(22oz bottle) Black body and a medium, creamy chocolate head. Smooth roasted malt aroma, lightly smoky, dark chocolate, espresso. The hops that werenít present in the aroma come through in the taste: at first in the front along with light acidity, fading on the way back with a roasted chocolate finish, and the hops coming back in the after taste. Floral and citrus notes. Medium- to full-bodied with lots of lace left on the glass.
