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.

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.

This beer is named for fire crews. Itís appropriate this time of year because of all the work those people are doing 24/7 around here right now. Itís an excellent Stout. Couldnít really get much better. Just needs more alcohol (make it Imperial).
