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!

Growler shared by Caterwaul. Pitch black color. Dark brown head, with a hue of brick to it. Great lace. Nice big roasty malt, big dark chocolate, some bitter roasted coffee. Light dark fruit. Big bitter taste, some sweetness. Really big body, chewy, light carbonation. Kind of dry in the finish. Light sweet bite to it. Body is not as chewy or thick as most imperial stouts, carbonation is a bit strange, too... Drinks like a very full flavored baltic porer. The flavor is huge, I donít really care that the texture doesnít feel typical stout. Very interesting beer. Odd, but I canít help but dig it

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2013
Tap @ CBC 2013. Pours completely black with a small, staying, creamy dark brown head. Aroma has light chocolate, coffee, light roasted, mild nutty. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mild smoked, burnt malts, chocolate, light roasted. Pleasant lightness to it. Really elegant. Classy.

Flaske delt med Odd Gunnar og Johnne pŚ Cafe Viking, mai-13: denne gjorde susen! Masser av god og overbevisende portersmak. Sśrdeles balansert og en fryd for ganen. Kompleks, samksrik sŚ det holder og fremdeles glir den friksjonsfritt over ganen. Nydelig.

Tap @ CBC 2013 and one of my festival favorites. Well-balanced in aroma and taste, with roasted malts, coffee, a hint of chocolate. A little sweetness and nice bitterness. Perfect!

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
22oz bottle shared by GT2: pours an oily opaque with a clingy-lacing dark beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruity Noyes. Starts with good fullness and sweet dark chocolate with some dark fruits before a drier smoky and roasted finish. True to style, enjoyable and complex.
