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!

Garrold (1073) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Nearly black. Espresso top coloured, thin, tight, lasting head. Light coffee. Liquorice. Cocoa powder. Some granary bread. Taste is dark chocolate sweet. Some hazelnut paste. After that, loads of well done bread bitterness. Thick, oily, chocolate palate. Fudgy sweetness on the finish, soon followed by a big, charred bitterness. A beer of two halves. Stupid easy to drink.

Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22, good night at his. Poured a dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malts, nice boozy notes. Flavour is more chocolate, roasted malts, hints of fruit. Has nice notes of alcohol that compliment it well. Good stuff.

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.

Reviewed from notes. This was received in a trade. This was poured into a nonic pint glass and a snifter. There wasnít any difference between the two glasses. The appearance was a fairly decent dark brown to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute gracing the glass with some fairly nice clinging lacing in a spider web fashion. The smell had a good about of licorice, light coffee, light milk chocolate with some booziness swirling around together underneath my nose. The taste was sweet and boozy around the chocolate, coffee and alcohol. There was a light sticky boozy chocolate aftertaste and a dry coffee/chocolatey finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of a sipperís type of quality to it. The carbonation seemed fairly light, but thatís okay, its nothing that was bad. Overall, what a nice Baltic Porter I would have again.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
A very good stout, though not as thick as the thickest newer IS. Lacey and black thicker looking body. Smooth mouthfeel, with some bitterness in the finish. Chocolate and coffee well integrated. I would like more coffee, and more "Baltic" flavour. Very good drinkability. Dougís bottle for his B day.

Emeister84 (860) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of roasty malts, chocolate, vanilla, and nutty tones. Dark brown-black with a small, tan head. Mostly dry with hints of malty sweetness, quite a savory beer. Medium-full bodied with average carbonation, and finishes with pleasant, clean, roasty flavors.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Cameron! Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, vanilla, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, coffee, and a bit of smoke. Excellent.
