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.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Fairly black, sudsy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Very pale roasted malt nose.   Soft sweet roasted malts, tart, a little airy on the tongue.   A little bit of fig, dates, and prunes on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Solid example of a Stout.   Wished it was a bit heavier tho.

RedSox2004 (1307) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Opque black with a smallish tan head that retained well and left very nice lace. Aroma and taste are all about roasted malt. Plenty of coffee with a pleasant bittersweet chocolate presence. A wisp of leafy hops bitterness. Medium to full body, low carbonation, very nice creamy smooth mouthfeel, and a quick dry finish.

DocJitsu (1031) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours an opaque very dark brown with a quickly dissipating pale mocha head. Chocolate up front on the nose that yields to coffee. Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style. Little to no chocolate in the flavor, but smoke and coffee in spades. Finishes pretty abruptly.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with creamy tan head that lasts, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, roast, nice earth, creamy caramel and molasses notes in there with a hint of slight dark cherry or plum. Taste is a mix of nice dark chocolate, coffee, green espresso, roast, hints of toffee, caramel, nice earthy tones, some fruity notes, finishing creamy, sweet, roasted. Nicely done, the mouthfeel on this for a 6% brew is pretty impressive.

Tap. Pours opaque reddish black, small beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is rich and strong with notes of coffee, dark roasted malts, and cocoa. Flavor is about the same, light sweet, light bitter. Full bodied and creamy.

Overall a pretty good regular stout with nice roasty chocolatey flavors that finishes dry and lightly hoppy. Very nice creamy palate for a regular stout. Good beer.
