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!

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.

Bottle from Hop City. Nice find. Thick black pour with a dense but quickly fading dark brown head. Very pretty. Aroma was very Baltic porter esque with big roasty malts and earthy hops. Somewhat of a lactose presence in the nose and finish. Flavors were welcoming and actually somewhat subtle. The subtle ness was actually quite nice and made this way drinkable and rather refreshing. Big roasted malts, coffee, light vanilla and a clean light bitter finish. The lager yeast gives this an almost delicate profile among the massive amounts of malt and hops. This was fantastic.

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

Impressive looking thick, black and with a lasting, thick and creamy dark tanned head. Roasty aroma, light fruity alcohol notes. liquorice tasting up front, malty caramel with a slight burn in the back. Bitter dark chocolate and coffee aftertaste.

I enjoyed this brew while watching the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad. Going to be tough for the beer I drink during the finale to top this one. Pours a deep dark brown with a tinge of red. Tan head. Chocolate dominates the nose with a feint hint of grape. Flavor starts earthy and chocolately and finishes with a bit of bitterness. Thick like a milkshake. Bottle - Filet & Vine - Montgomery, AL

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 9, 2013
Pitch black colour, medium dark brown head. Nice roasted malty aroma with coffee, licorice, red grapes, herbal notes as well as a slight medicinal one, as well as some ash, vanilla. Smooth, easy drinking. Heavy roasted malty flavour with chocolate, coffee, some ash, licorice, tobacco, biscuits, red grapes, almonds. Somewhat peculiar but a great beer nonetheless.
