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!

Bomber. Pours deep black with a creamy, dark tan head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is chocolate, very dark roast espresso, and a bit of mint. Taste is dark chocolate mocha. Very rich but surprisingly (and pleasantly) dry. The higher ABV is rather subdued and really sneaks up. One of the best beers Iíve had in awhile.

Thanks, Matt, for sharing. Aroma is big roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. Lightly fruity nose, also. Pour is oily black with a tan head. Flavor is big roast and dark chocolate, light coffee, some anise, and molasses. Nice.

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.

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!
