Pours a deep chestnut reddish color with a malty aroma. Malty dark grains marry raisin, molasses, dark cherry, and brown sugar notes. Boozy, earthy hops cut through a slick, slight sweetness. Aging the corked & caged bottles will mellow the profile and deepen the complexity.
Born of a recipe collaboration with Fegley’s Brew Works Brewmaster Beau Baden and homebrewer, adventurer & beer historian Chris Bowen. Fegley’s Brew Works recreated this fine ale from a 158 year old recipe under the direction of Brewmaster Beau Baden. A historic beer with flavors of bready malt, molasses & vanilla, dry notes of earthy hops, and just the slightest hint of citrus. At 12% ABV this beer is fully capable of washing your scurvy woes far out to sea!
