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!

Bottle (22 oz). Shared by Marc-Olivier, thanks! Reddish black with a small persistent beige/brown head and little lacing. Aroma of chocolate, herbal notes, fruits and hops. Taste is moderately sweet with a lot of chocolate, fruity notes and some herbal notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Thick mouthfeel. Complex and enjoyable Baltic Porter. Not cloying.

Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a black one. Yeah, really black actually and the nice lady who poured this to me gave it a medium sized brown top that looks like a million bucks. . The aroma has tones of ashtray and heavy roasted almost burned malts. Some lactose and a milky sweetness shines through with milk chocolate and more roasted things. Great taste also. No doubt that this has been in contact with wood, so much is clear, and itís not directly sweet but it has a milky chocolaty sweetness to it. Lots if roasted stuff going on here. Some nice sweet biscuits in the roasted finish. A really tasty one. 03.05.2013

dark brown, thin tan ring. Stale cardboard nose, faint oats and sugar with strawberry hints. Flavor is fresher, more sugar, chocolate, cardboard comes through in end. Too old, profile canít alleviate.

Slutfest! Black, dark tan head. Smooth milk chocolate aroma. Flavor is dark chocolate and coffee, hint of dark fruit lingering in the background. Rich and smooth, a very nice beer. One of the highlights of the day for me.

jesperhammer (3404) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
23-JUL-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Black with dark brown, lasting head. Roasted aroma with prunes and soy. Taste the same but better. Sweet but with a touch of bitterness. Full body and soft carbonation. Often Westbrook beers have been overcarbonated but this is wonderfull.

Flaske delt med Odd Gunnar og Johnne pŚ Cafe Viking, mai-13: denne gjorde susen! Masser av god og overbevisende portersmak. Sśrdeles balansert og en fryd for ganen. Kompleks, samksrik sŚ det holder og fremdeles glir den friksjonsfritt over ganen. Nydelig.

22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small brown head. Aroma of booze, sweet milk chocolate, ans roast malts. Taste much as the aroma with the chocolate, leading the way, a nice bitter end.
