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!

Itzjerm (1201) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Updated from bottel. Pitch black. nice dark head that stays. Pretty awesome. Rasberry flavor rich dark taste. Enjoyable beer with non stellar aroma. Sweetness is nice. But not to great.

RABinCO (1200) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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.

Zer0 (1126) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle thanks to kermis. Pours very dark brown with not much head at all. Aroma is big liquorice, roasted malts, boozy and some coffee. Taste is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle pour at Natifest 2013. Pours opaque black. Nose syrupy malt, slight booze, dark fruit, and roast. Taste strong roast, chocolate, and nice bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel.

Sampled this one wandering around the line on Darkness Eve 2013. Just missed the Mexican Cake poured right before this. Roasty stout with hidden alcohol.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2013
22oz bottle from GBX. pours a thick, syrupy, brown that sits black in the glass capped by a dense mocha head that leaves oily stains of lace. aroma is excellent with heavy dark chocolate, fudge brownies, roasted malts, and moist earth backed by intriguing and subtle notes of black cherry, blueberry, trail mix, and bitter espresso. flavor is outstanding with rich, dark roasted malts, coffee beans, dark chocolate cake, and light peat smoke up front backed by red wine, blueberry skins, and sweet molasses. palate is full bodied and rich but the lager yeast keeps it from being syrupy and adds a fluffy texture to the mouthfeel. overall, another winner from the Westbrook guys.

Emeister84 (918) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
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.
