COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our Second Anniversary beer, we tapped into the legendary fictional adventures of the mythical Cap’n Skoon to bring you this monster Baltic Stout. It’s big and roasty like an Imperial Stout but fermented with a German lager yeast. Ideal for sipping now, or be like the Cap’n and stash some away in your cargo hold for the years to come. Cheers!

Cybercat (3220) - Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2013
Robust, smoky aroma has licorice, coffee, molasses, caramel and semi-sweet chocolate notes. Pours a rich, warm sable a flea’s eyebrow above black with a thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent tan head. Hearty flavor has a strong smoky malt overtone that ushers in chocolate, coffee, caramel, nutty, earthy and subtle licorice notes that boogie on your tongue and stay long after the beer has gone down the pipes. Firm, smooth, oily texture is fairly fizzy, though the tingle does not persist the way the flavors do. Somewhat bitter hops make their appearance only in the final act, the bitterness nicely balancing the chocolaty sweetness. This is indeed a monster - monstrously delicious!

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2013
From tap, CBC 2013. Beautiful black with a dense brown head. High malty, riasted, with notes of chocolate and licorice. Very smooth flavor, sweet and light bitter, with a lingering bitter, slightly salty finish and a creamy, velvety texture. Full body. Lovely.

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.

Tap @ CBC 2013 and one of my festival favorites. Well-balanced in aroma and taste, with roasted malts, coffee, a hint of chocolate. A little sweetness and nice bitterness. Perfect!

zizzybalubba (1386) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2013
22 oz. bottle from The Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC (bottled December 18, 2012). Pours black with a rich brown head. Aroma of cocoa, roasty malts, and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is rich with heavy amounts of roasted espresso, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt with a hint of dark fruit on the finish. Recommended chaser, a gallon of water. While heavy, the flavor is outstanding and this is one of the finest Baltic porter’s I have tried.

From bomber. Really nice nose. Chocolate, vanilla, oak, smoke, coffee, Twizzlers, molasses. Dark black opaque with thin tan head. Oily body with medium carbonation and warming. Starts and stays sweet with roasted barley, coffee, vanilla, and oak. Alcohol. Big bitter finish with lots of roasted and toasted notes. Big sweet after with smoke and tang.

umich03jm (1814) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bomber, bottled Dec 2012. Pours black with a small foamy head that quickly fades and leaves some minor webbing. Nice rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, currants, tobacco, cookie dough, and vanilla. Taste has some light chocolaty sweetness mixed with a strong, bitter roasted coffee. Lots of tobacco, raisins, cookies, currants. Delicious. Long bitter finish with a slightly spicy kick, not sure if that’s hops, rye, or something else. Thick body with a smooth creamy and oily mouthfeel. Awesome beer. I want to get another of these.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Glaçage à gâteau au chocolat liquide avec les attraits de la levure lager qui donne une fraîcheur et une clarté des saveurs. Torréfaction et malts rôti en vedette, vraiment solide.
