Beer added by: IPAchris on 08-19-2013

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.

This is absolutely the worst pumpkin beer I have ever had. First I went to the brewery to try the beer and it was completely warm and flat when it came off the tap. Very disappointed! I met the owner who told me the beer was not flat and if I did not like the carbonation then to leave. Besides the terrible beer the owner of the brewery was completely rude. I assume he was the owner. Short awkward looking guy with a tattoo on his arm. He must be very insecure when it comes to his beer. I would never buy this beer again or go back to Saucony Creek.

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.
