Mocha Marlin

Porter with Coffee and Chocolate

Coffee and chocolate come together in this brew.

Our Black Marlin Porter is the perfect beer for a mocha mashup. The addition of coffee and cocoa plays perfectly off the roasty, chocolaty flavors of this English porter, while a hint of vanilla smoothes it all our. It’s full-bodied, but not too sweet; try it for breakfast…or dessert.

Cinnamon Raisin Commodore

American Stout with Cinnamon and Raisin

A stout with some spice.

Our Cinnamon Raisin Commodore is truly a story of experimentation. Originally a gold-medal winning American stout first born in our R&D program, our brewers developed a new variation, adding cinnamon and raisins to this dark, bittersweet brew. The result is just the right amount of sweet and spice, with roasty maltiness at the helm.

Barmy

Golden Ale with Apricot & Honey

A big beer that’s insanely satisfying.

Our Barmy is a strong golden ale that lives up to its name…in a way. Some know “barmy” as slang for crazy or wacky. But historically it’s referred to the froth coming from fermenting fruit or beer, a definition that suits this brew made with apricots and orange blossom honey. With a tart fruitiness and a sweet, but not too sugary, finish, the only thing crazy about this Barmy is the amount of flavor.

Peppermint Victory At Sea

Imperial Porter with Coffee, Vanilla and Peppermint

A winning combo of coffee, vanilla & mint.

This Peppermint Victory at Sea is a festive take on our popular Imperial Porter. We took our trademark robust porter brewed with Caffe Calabria coffee and vanilla and added a dose of refreshing peppermint. The trio of flavors play perfectly on your palate – the brew’s sweet roasting balances nicely with a cool, minty finish.

Calm Before the Storm

Cream Ale with Coffee & Vanilla

A coffee ale with a touch of cream.
Calm Before the Storm came from a quest for a warm weather alternative to our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter. Like its more robust cousin, we infuse a punch of flavor using cold brewed Caffé Calabria coffee and a hint of vanilla. But this time, we added it to a lighter-bodied golden cream ale. The end result is a surprisingly bright, coffee-forward beer that’s perfectly refreshing.

Pumpkin Down

Scottish Ale with Pumpkin

A pumpkin ale that bucks the trend.
Some might think we’re out of our gourd for making a pumpkin ale, but our Pumpkin Down is not like the others.  The caramel and toffee maltiness of our Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, we add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor. It was a smash at the brewery, and we think you’ll agree.

With a deep orange hue reminiscent of pumpkin pie, a Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for this beer. A three hour boil enhances the caramel and toffee flavors provided by the British malts. Just before bottling, a small amount of spices are added to compliment, but not overwhelm, the pumpkin flavor.

Dead Ringer

Oktoberfest Lager

A fresh take on a traditional festival beer.
Our Dead Ringer Oktoberfest lager is inspired by old-style Märzen brews customarily enjoyed during Bavaria’s world-famous beer festival. Thanks to an abundance of toasted malt and a lower hop bitterness, this dark reddish brown lager is loaded with sweet, caramel toffee flavors and aromas. All the taste and celebration of Oktoberfest packed into one bottle; no lederhosen required.

Pours burnt orange to reddish brown in color with aromas of rich sugars, nutty toasted malts, fresh baked biscuits and reserved hop spice. Pilsner Malt, Munich Malt and German Noble Hops all help build those classic aromas into this cold fermented lager. Caramunich Crystal Malt and low bitterness also add to the creamy and complex flavors layered in this beer. Oktoberfest is inspired by older versions of Oktoberfest Lagers that leaned toward the caramel/toffee flavors typical in darker Märzen Beers.
