A Scotch Ale, malty and complex mahogany colored with hints of chocolate. To commemorate the historic find by Cottrell Brewer, diver and discover Charlie Buffum of the wreck of the USS Revenge off the coast of Watch Hill Rhode Island. Last seen in 1811, the USS Revenge was Oliver Hazard Perry’s first Naval Command before his famous victory in the battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. Perry’s Revenge is a discovery you will wish to make with friends. Summon to mind the mystery of things long lost in the darkness of the ocean bottom.

Muddy brownish-copper in color with less than a finger of head. The nose has distinct sweet malty notes. A touch light bodied for a Wee Heavy.

Sweet and bready but not syrupy. The sweetness remains on the finish and may end up being a bit much. That said, the alcohol is kept in check well and this offering is very drinkable.
