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.

Had it on tap recently at a local Richmond, VA pub, and just had it in the bottle last night. On tap it is amazing, in bottle the maple taste and sweetness was more noticeable, but not to where one could call it sweet. There is much more going on in this beer.

I am not a fan of pumpkin ales, but this one blew me away to the point where I actually sought it out and bought it in the bottle. The label states it is made with butternut squash. The beer is well-balanced, with the slight sweetness and taste of maple, and just enough spice notes and pumpkin (squash?) flavor to make it known, but not diminish the flavor of the beer.

Pancakes. This is what you drink with pancakes. Strong maple aroma and taste dominates. Fantastic for those with a sweet tooth. ABV doesn't hit until it is too late.
