For our Second Anniversary beer, we tapped into the legendary fictional adventures of the mythical Capín Skoon to bring you this monster Baltic Stout. Itís big and roasty like an Imperial Stout but fermented with a German lager yeast. Ideal for sipping now, or be like the Capín and stash some away in your cargo hold for the years to come. Cheers!

Garrold (731) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Nearly black. Espresso top coloured, thin, tight, lasting head. Light coffee. Liquorice. Cocoa powder. Some granary bread. Taste is dark chocolate sweet. Some hazelnut paste. After that, loads of well done bread bitterness. Thick, oily, chocolate palate. Fudgy sweetness on the finish, soon followed by a big, charred bitterness. A beer of two halves. Stupid easy to drink.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a pitch black body and a dark tan head that dissapates quite soon. Molasses, roasted malts, licorice, tar hints and coffee in the aroma. Alcohol notes too. Itís full-bodied and warming on the palate, a bit sweetish. Licorice, roasted malts, molasses, tar and coffee in the flavor. Some bitterness. Lasting warming finish with roasted malts and licorice. A pretty pleasant one, but a bit too alcoholic. 131228
