Notes/Commercial Description:
In the autumn of 1720, Captain Jack Rachman and his pirate-mates were celebrating their victories in typical hard-drinking tradition. Suddenly a British Navy sloop surprised them. The drunken pirates hid below deck, leaving Captain Jack’s mistresses Anne Bonney and Mary Read to defend the ship. The women shared a reputation as “fierce hell cats,” but the British Navy eventually overtook the pirate ship. Captain Jack and the pirates were sentenced to hang. Anne visited her lover in his cell before his execution, and instead of loving words her scathing comments live on throughout history, “Had you fought like a man, you need not have been hang’d like a dog.” Their legacy inspired us to brew an equally ferocious Imperial Pumpkin Ale brewed with pirate rum spices. We added a touch of autumn flavor with roasted butternut squash and natural maple syrup.

Disclaimer: I prefer my pumpkin beers to be akin to the old "liquid pumpkin pie" phrase because I have a sweet tooth.
And, quite frankly, if I'm going to drink a pumpkin beer I want pumpkin to dominate, not just be a background spice - I can have non-pumpkin beers the other 11 months of the year.
Poured a reddish copper body with one finger head that went away quick.
Smells like the sweet part of pumpkin pie - pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, all around sugary sweetness - not much spicy edge or breadiness (crust) to this beer at all.
Medium body, very sweet and that's how I like it, not overtly sweet to where it's sickening, pretty simple, actually.
Goes down smooth although at times sticky (I guess that's the maple syrup) and the profile is like the aroma, pumpkin and sugary sweetness.
Must say did not realize how high the ABV was on this until got on this website b/c I didn't get any booze at all in the finish.
