Storming of the Floridablanca

Rum Barrel-aged Strong Dark Ale with Licorice Root

Did you know?

After pillaging and plundering the Florida coast on his ship The Floridablanca, Tampa’s infamous pirate Jose Gaspar ran afoul of a pirate hunting schooner, the USS Enterprise, in 1821.The Floridablanca was stormed by the US Navy, signaling the end of the pirate ship and of the pirate himself. We brewed a strong dark ale with licorice root to commemorate his fall and aged it in rum barrels, the only vessel appropriate for a beer bearing the name of Tampa’s most beloved pirate ship.

This unique strong dark ale boasts dark cherry, chicory and dark chocolate on the nose with a soft wine-like aroma complimenting. On the palate, semi-sweet chocolate, fudge, molasses and candied flavors are balanced by rum spiciness, wood tannins and an assertive carbonation.
