It is said that the sun never set on the British Empire. But at midnight on the high seas, it mattered not. Merchant ships of the mighty empire, laden with treasures from the East Indies, sailed at their own peril - rich quarry for the plundering pirates who ruled the waves.

Product Details

As shrewd as any British trader, the pirate barons courted silks and spices to trade on the blackmarket. Gold and silver to line their coffers - and one treasure they valued above all else – the legendary ales brewed in Britain to withstand the long voyage to India. Rum was seafarer’s swill next to a hogshead of India Ale!

Rooted in the rich tradition of India Pale Ales, our recipe is kissed with malt as dark as the sea on a moonless night, for a dark and hoppy marriage made in homebrew heaven. A gentle bitterness sets the initial tone. Next comes opulent notes of rich malt, followed by boastful American hops with resinous tea-leaf undertones. Bergamot, pine, grapefruit, and a hint of chocolate complete the hop-heavy finish, yielding an ale that’s definitely worth plundering for.

Tasty kit
Quality NB kit as always. Having the Midnight blend detailed in the previous comment helped, although would be nice to include that description with the kit. That 1 lb sure adds a lot of color.

Personal modifications: I added 1 cup of brown sugar at flame out and then added 0.25 oz Amarillo and 0.25 oz Centennial for dry hop in keg. I used the Wyeast 1098 and this was drinkable at 3 weeks at 7.8%.

In short, will buy again.

Ingredients were all as described and delivered on time. It would be nice to know more about the grain blend used, since without stats I can't calculate the brew. I expect it to come out fine, but details would be nice.

I am ready to ride the waves and say yo ho!
I just bought the "Pirates of the Caribbean" Series so I could consume 5 gallons of hearty grog and feel "pirate'ty". Savvy? Bound to be a favorite in my galley! You know NB never steers you wrong! Say "Aarrr!!" Feels good, doesn't it?
