Original Release Date:
This brew-pub exclusive is a strong brown ale brewed with brown sugar, and dark roasty grain. We created it by combining our Indian Brown Ale, Palo Santo Marron, and an experimental batch of 120 Minute IPA brewed at the Rehoboth Beach brewpub by brewer Bryan Selders.
The name comes from a Melville story of the same name about a big strong sailor in the British Navy. This three thread ale has a deep brown color, with firm bitterness balanced by complex malt sweetness and roasted notes. Great with BBQ, dessert, or your favorite novel.
Serving size: Snifter
This beer should go on tap late the week of 4/26/10 and will be around as long as it lasts.
