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!

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pour is an oily viscous pitch black color with a dark brown head. Toooons of toasted malt on the nose, dark fruit and alcohol, some milk chocolate, anise, and a hint of caramel. Really thick and rich bitter chocolate notes up front, dark roasted coffee, dark fruit quickly fades away to toasted malt, slight oakyness, and a bit of caramel and molasses. Delicious, 6 month old baltic porter. Very well balanced.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - 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.

RABinCO (1285) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bomber. Pours deep black with a creamy, dark tan head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is chocolate, very dark roast espresso, and a bit of mint. Taste is dark chocolate mocha. Very rich but surprisingly (and pleasantly) dry. The higher ABV is rather subdued and really sneaks up. One of the best beers Iíve had in awhile.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle from Hop City. Nice find. Thick black pour with a dense but quickly fading dark brown head. Very pretty. Aroma was very Baltic porter esque with big roasty malts and earthy hops. Somewhat of a lactose presence in the nose and finish. Flavors were welcoming and actually somewhat subtle. The subtle ness was actually quite nice and made this way drinkable and rather refreshing. Big roasted malts, coffee, light vanilla and a clean light bitter finish. The lager yeast gives this an almost delicate profile among the massive amounts of malt and hops. This was fantastic.
