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.

SlovakSniper (4040) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Stout très simple mais ô combien efficace. Belle présentation. Arômes pénétrants de malts rôtis, de café et de chocolat. C’est fichtrement bien fait. Les saveurs repérées sont celles du café et du chocolat amer. La bouche n’est pas très corpulente mais honnête et crémeuse. En finale, tout est bien amer par une torréfaction bien contrôlée. Une dégustation bien plaisante!

cheap (4676) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Big and black on the pour. Nice head baby. Typical roasted beer aroma. Doesn’t seem thick and not viscous. Flat. Leathery feel to it. Taste is not infringing into the impy territory. Just a good overall stout this is. Not bad on the finish.

Kevin (2158) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Black with minim gray white head. Light roast nose, with a touch of baking chocolate. The bitter roast is perfect in this, exactly what I want in a stout. Light caramel notes with the slight smokey chocolate.

Tap at the brewery. Pours black with a small, fizzy beige head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is roast malt, earthy spicy hops. Flavor is dark roast malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Another awesome coffee stout. Super black coffee flavored with a nice bitter finish pours black with a thin tan head. Smells like black coffee. Had at sheffields. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a big tan head from tap. Aroma isn?t super strong. Burnt roasty. Doesn?t hit me as chocolate or coffee specifically. Taste is quite bitter at first but fades to a bitter chocolate towards the end. Really thin body and pretty bubbly. Atypical for sure. Not really my thing.

UDBeernut (2239) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
rake from last night enjoyed watching GOT. Pours the part with an ample khaki head that reduces to a light lacing cap that leaves a large trail. roasted malt nose. strong espresso taste, slightly bitter and astringent. Its pretty much perfect for a stout. Light to medium body with a lingering finish.

Sarlacc83 (1480) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2015
Tap at Apex, post CBC. Oh, Captain, my captain. A: Pitch black with a cappuccino head. Some lacing. N: Coffee, cocoa, roast, oats, hint of vanilla, dirt and pine. T: Sweet, lightly bitter, and oaty. M: Creamy, medium body with carbonation to match and no alcohol burn. O: Thick, creamy oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the minerality of Sam’s Smith, and for that, I appreciate it more.
