[EDIT: found the link]

have you ever had Pyrat XO before? It's an amazing sipping rum & priced extremely modest if you can find it. I've found it in NV, AZ, DC and VA. (ok, so I like the stuff!) I'll bet Pyrat rum melds well in Pirate Stout...

If you do the coconut thing, please don't wuss out and use Malibu or some other garbage. Maybe a "dry hop" of coconut shavings?

Default In the name of research.

Tonight I do the Research!
New Belgium 1554 Black ale. (NO IT"S NOT A REAL STOUT)
Appleton Estates Rum (The $11.00 Bottle(No its not REAL RUM))
Malibu. Yes Malibu.

I will not make a 1554 clone, I will use Real Rum, and I will NOT Use Malibu... But this is, as they say, PROOF OF CONCEPT.

I am on #3, and I am pissed that the LHBS is 100 miles away, and not open at 11pm! Butt Heads. I Just bumped this to #1 on the "TO BREW" list...and I'm so excited I'm shaking. This could make me famous!

And Yes, I have 2 liquor stores that I shop that carry the Pirate Xo. Both in Colorado Springs.

I like the original Black Peral Pirate Stout Logo. It reminds me of ye olden days. Maybe you can use the same colors for the bottom as you used for the top. Also, the bottom right hand corner is a bit tough to read.

Have you printed one out to see how it will actually look?

I really like that second logo. The change from the first to the second is great! It has a nice pop to it. Great job.

Being one that loves the stout more than anything else, I think bottling stout with rum sounds awesome! How much of a splash are you talking about? Good enough of a splash to get us seriously wasted and talking like pirates?

I would love to see the recipe sometime if you'd like to share.

Check my Recipe below my avitar. It is a derivation of a stout that I made about 8 years ago. It was great then, should be great now.
If we use 2 750ML bottles of 40% Rum, we should end up at about 7%. I am thinking of adding some Light extract or some Candi Sugar to up the fermentables.

No stout yet...the Dunkle is going to bottle on Saturday. It has a lot more banana (Natural) than I thought it would. I was planning on a 750 ML of Banana Rum...It's not going to take that much i dont' think.


I Will Post for sure.

This is a sweet idea, with a sweet label.

If no recipe comes soon- I will be tempted to make up my own.
