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.

Tap at The Local. Dark black beer with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly roasty with a fairly prominent cocoa and chocolate nose. A light toasted malt character and a bit of herbal hoppiness as well. Good light sweetness and a touch of sweet maltiness through the middle. Lingering sweetness, chocolatey with a good balance of roast and sweetness.

GMCC2181 (1570) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle shared by wolf. Black in color, decent head. Sweet aroma, but the taste is roasted malts with a touch of maple that gives it a sweetness. Also chocolate and caramel. Texture is lighter for a stout which is a change up. Overall a pretty good stout.

Bottle. Pour a wonderfully rich black with a good cream head. Nose is very appealing, almost spoiled smelling. Lots of malt flavors, caramel and maple comes through as a nice pair. Thin, medium bodied, and refreshing on the palate. A mild bitter finish. A good beer. thin feel, thin feel, astringent,

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, myrup]
Pours deep chestnut brown, almost black. a big, creamy beige head. Aroma has lots of roasted malts, good fruitiness - some black currants, dark chocolate, doughy malts, light liquorice. Highish carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour starts off with a fresh, zesty, tartness, lots of black currants. Then the beer turns drier and more stout’ish. Lots of chocolate, soft roasted malts and dry coffee in the finish. Very refreshing, long aftertaste.

Bottle@BlindTastingSession. Aroma of black currant, coffee, black roasted malts and black chocolate. Dark ruby color, light brown head, good lace. Light but increasing sweetness, fruity sourness, nice steady bitterness. Red berries, black currant and chocolate. I don’t think this refreshing sourness is supposed to be there (but the bottle wasn’t that old, just a couple of months) but it did suite very well.

On NITRO at O’Brien’s in San Diego. First of all, I love this beer. But when combined with nitro, it’s simply wonderful! A fantastic creamy off-white, slightly chocolaty head that lingers quite long. The head makes it so scrumpschous and chewy, and the flavor doesn’t dissapoint either! Fantastic mild tones (very mild) of chocolate and coffee and vanilla, but a pronounced "fresh" flavor that comes from the carmel malts. Very sweet and dry and quite drinkable. I’m a huge fan... especially on NITRO!!

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a huge, frothy, light brown head. Decent retention. Creamy, chocolaty nose with hints of soy sauce and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Chocolaty flavor... bittersweet. Finishes a tad burnt and ends up fairly dry.

Attractive deep brown pour with a full tan head. The nose os sweet and leather like. The flavor is astringent and overly sweet with a strange, sour finish that lingers.
