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 shared by GT2: pours an oily opaque with a clingy-lacing dark beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruity Noyes. Starts with good fullness and sweet dark chocolate with some dark fruits before a drier smoky and roasted finish. True to style, enjoyable and complex.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, earthy dark chocolate, some chocolate brownie and then a light amount of molasses. The taste delivers rich malt deepened dark roasted malts mixed with dark chocolate goodness and then getting into some vanilla bean and spicy black strap molasses. Wow! This is dynamite dark roasted goodness. Great stuff.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared at Natifest- I missed who opened this, though. Pours a near-black color, opaque, with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malts. The flavor is the same. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Really nice, big, bold Baltic porter.
