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!

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.

22 oz. bottle from The Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC (bottled December 18, 2012). Pours black with a rich brown head. Aroma of cocoa, roasty malts, and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is rich with heavy amounts of roasted espresso, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt with a hint of dark fruit on the finish. Recommended chaser, a gallon of water. While heavy, the flavor is outstanding and this is one of the finest Baltic porterís I have tried.

Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a medium reddish tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, leather, sweet wet tobacco, caramel, and alcohol, reminds me of wet dog food. Taste of sweet chocolate, mild dark fruits, finishing with dry leather tobacco and coffee. Nice!

Thanks for the share Matt. This porter was bold and creamy with lots of caramel and coffee finishing with a dark chocolate kiss. VERY drinkable at 10% so watch out!

Tap. Pours pitch black with a excellent glass coating lacing and thick dark brown frothy medium head. Aroma is licorice, burnt malt, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, grass, grapefruit, noticeable lager yeast characteristic lager yeast aromas, hops, brown sugar. Taste is medium+ sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture is sticky, light creamy and thick, carbonation is very soft. Finishes super roasted malty, licorice, grass and alcoholic dry. This is a fine treat.

Pitch black body yields foamy espresso head. Sticky beads of lace adorn my teku. Gorgeous!

Rich, yet dry, coffee-infused roasty malt aroma. Taste opens up with espresso and boozy chocolate malt, turns sweet briefly before finishing dry. In short: Wow! This is excellent.

It isn't often I'm this impressed by a stout, but Ballistic Stout is deserving.

Garrold (1227) - 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.
