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!

A: Pours a pitch black color with a thick, dark mocha head forming on the pour. The retention is top notch. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass. S: This is big beer. Super roasty with some fruity yeast in the periphery. Alcohol notes are present, but it doesnít detract from the roasted malts and big dark chocolate notes. Some cocoa powder is there as well. T: A ton of roasted malts, some char and a touch of cocoa bean. Bitter dark chocolate with some light fruity yeast in the background. Definitely seems like an amped up Baltic porter due to the yeast strain. Enjoyable. M: Low carbonation. Silky smooth across the palate. Medium bodied. Finish is chocolate and big roast. O: This a big and roasty beer, but the yeast strain drops subtle hints that itís still got some Baltic porter bloodlines at heart. Itís pretty ready to go now with the booze well hidden. Donít really see this benefiting from any extended aging. Maybe a year if you want the robust roasted malts to die down a bit. Serving type: bottle

Aromas of roasty malts, chocolate, vanilla, and nutty tones. Dark brown-black with a small, tan head. Mostly dry with hints of malty sweetness, quite a savory beer. Medium-full bodied with average carbonation, and finishes with pleasant, clean, roasty flavors.

Garrold (732) - 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.
