COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Captain is leader of a fire crew. This beer takes charge of your taste buds with its rich flavor. Roasty malt character that has hints of chocolate and coffee which balances the smooth, velvety finish. The thick, creamy head lasts and lasts, leaving lace in your glass as your beer disappears. This beer pairs well with food. Great with dinner or as breakfast or even with a rich vanilla-bean ice cream.

Draft. Dark brown color, brown head. Lots of ashy, roasty coffee, malt with a bit of chocolate and toffee. Dry, dry finish. Nothing too extraordinary, but when you want a 6% stout...

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Draft at fireworks pizza Leesburg. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Some solid pine on the nose along with some roasted notes. A bit hop forward on the tongue for my taste but still flavorful and balanced. Finished clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank on tap at Backyard Ale House in Scranton, Pa. Pours a nice deep, dark, brown/black color with very little light brown head. Smells of chocolate and malts. A good brew, a little off putting taste in the beginning that grows on you.

This beer is named for fire crews. Itís appropriate this time of year because of all the work those people are doing 24/7 around here right now. Itís an excellent Stout. Couldnít really get much better. Just needs more alcohol (make it Imperial).
