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.

Une grande vague d’anis déferle sur une base de pain grillé chocolaté. Le corps est moyen, assez aérien et une torréfaction douce en finale.

Great blankets of lace on the glass from a smallish head (for the style). Deep dark brown where no light shines through. Straight up black patent malt aroma. Lots of coffee on the tongue. Smooth but in an espresso sort of way. Rich body but with a good level of carbonation. Relatively short aftertaste.
