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.

A- Pours a bright and copper clear color with a small creamy white head that retains after the pour, leaving some short-lasting lace behind

S- vegetal aromas of yam, squash and pumpkin. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, sweet maple syrup, buttery pie crust malt. Aroma reminds me of The Bruery Autumn Maple

T- Cinnamon flavor is the first thing to jump out, like cinnamon toast. A maple sweetness kicks in mid-palate with vegetal squash flavors. Pie-crust-like malt on the finish with more maple on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a chewy mouthfeel and a foamy finish. Light alcohol warmth, but pretty well hidden given the ABV.

O- An interesting take that plays well with the maple and spices. The pie crus flavor of the malt was an inspired touch as well

2.88/5  rDev -26.3%

A: hazy amber, translucent; beige head dissipating to surface film; jags of lacing
S: fresh pumpkin pie, slightly buttery sweet
T: clear nutmeg, bubble gum, alcohol, a hint of maple
M: full-bodied, cream, on the cloying side
O: Much better initial taste than aftertaste, but unfortunately that's what you're stuck with. Weird spiced bubblegum,

Pours a brownish-copper color with a finger of off-white head. The head retains for quite some time and leaves some lacing on the glass. The most pronounced note in the nose is pumpkin. The flavor profile has maple and brown sugar upfront. The taste of the pumpkin is completely overwhelmed by the maple and brown sugar. The finish is semi-dry with an alcohol bite that sneaks up as the beer warms and becomes unpleasant by the end of the glass.
