COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Backlog rate from the spring; bomber into goblet. Dark brown pour, head dies. Lovely chocolate and light coffee roast nose, tastes sweet chocolate, dark caramel, bitter roast, coffee, hint of vanilla. Medium body (light for the style), creamy smooth, soft carbonation. Delicious and easy-drinking.

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottled on 2012-12-18. Black with a large creamy dark brown head. Vanilla, molasses/brown sugar, dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, heavy sweet and medium bitter, light acidic. Warming alcohol. Big and sticky, wears me out but fine in small amounts.

Bulk_Carrier (2278) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was received in a trade. This was poured into a nonic pint glass and a snifter. There wasnít any difference between the two glasses. The appearance was a fairly decent dark brown to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute gracing the glass with some fairly nice clinging lacing in a spider web fashion. The smell had a good about of licorice, light coffee, light milk chocolate with some booziness swirling around together underneath my nose. The taste was sweet and boozy around the chocolate, coffee and alcohol. There was a light sticky boozy chocolate aftertaste and a dry coffee/chocolatey finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of a sipperís type of quality to it. The carbonation seemed fairly light, but thatís okay, its nothing that was bad. Overall, what a nice Baltic Porter I would have again.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Beautiful initial pour leading towards a large toasty, earthy and dark fruit character. You do indeed get lager yeast esters and brash alcohol. This was bottled 12/18/12 and does have a touch of that "aged" tone which works nicely here.

Westmeister (1839) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
May Ale Alpharetta. While this is better than the bourbon version I had in a cask, this beer just doesnít tickle my fancy. And I am a Westbrook fanboy. Chocolate, licorice, lots of dark fruits, and the yeast is working against my palate. Nice thick palate, but the flavors just arenít there for me.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22, good night at his. Poured a dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malts, nice boozy notes. Flavour is more chocolate, roasted malts, hints of fruit. Has nice notes of alcohol that compliment it well. Good stuff.

Garrold (1740) - 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.

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Dark chocolate heavy with a nice warming grainy presence. Borders on feeling hot at times. Solid.
