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.

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.

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 (1416) - 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.

I like stouts... Wait no I like porters. Maybe I like both. I don’t know... But I digress, this is a stout. A perfect representation of a no frills roasty, chocolatey, stouty stout.

IndianaRed (2959) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2015
On Tap very deep black. Full and lasting light tan head. Very roasty straight forward aroma. Mostly roast, not much of the other subtle related flavors that some stouts have. Fairly high IBU .
