With over 4,000 miles of coastline, Nova Scotia is dotted with small bays and hidden coves that protected pirates and rum-runners as they smuggled alcohol from ship to shore, eluding the authorities in the mist and fog. What better way to recognize the traditions of our Maritime sailors than to take our rich chocolatey stout and infuse it with the flavours and aromas of an oak-aged rum cask?
Captain Artemas is our barrel-aged stout, nurtured for five months in a rum cask to impart notes from the wood like vanilla and dark fruit, with a slightly higher alcohol content (9% ABV) to provide a smooth, mellow finish. Some in the beer industry say this aging process exemplifies the pinnacle of craft beer achievement. You may want to smuggle your own bottle away to savour yourself.
