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!

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Tap @ CBC2013, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolat, but then with extra figs, mint or coconut. Bit too sweet in taste besides the medium bitterness. Cool to see itís fermented with a lager yeast. 3.7 Bottle @ Beer Temple, large sample. Very creamy oatmeal, coffee, dark chocolate, hint of molasses. Smooth and creamy texture. Clean bitterness and yeast profile. Well balanced brew. Upping the score a bit to 4.0

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Beautiful initial pour leading towards a large toasty, earthy and dark fruit character. You do indeed get lager yeast esters and brash alcohol. This was bottled 12/18/12 and does have a touch of that "aged" tone which works nicely here.
