This special brew is infused by oak that has been craft with specially aged Rum to yield a toasted color and subtle distinctive flavors. Our special old world malts and sugars used in this brew reflect the pale ale that the pirates would have brought from their Highland homeland to make their grueling journeys to the West Indies more tolerable and to celebrate successes of their conquests at hidden ports. Our special European hop profile imparts a pleasant and complex citrusy and toffee like flavor, which enhances this strong ale. This is balanced by smoked peat aromas that could help you to imagine the firing of the battery of cannons before the boarding. Our unique extended aging cellar techniques involves pristine care and tasting of each batch by our specially trained brewing team before we can release each bottle to carry the exquisite John Henry label. Years of training and appreciation of what makes John Henry become a satisfying full and bold experience comes in every carefully packaged bottle.
