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!

I enjoyed this brew while watching the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad. Going to be tough for the beer I drink during the finale to top this one. Pours a deep dark brown with a tinge of red. Tan head. Chocolate dominates the nose with a feint hint of grape. Flavor starts earthy and chocolately and finishes with a bit of bitterness. Thick like a milkshake. Bottle - Filet & Vine - Montgomery, AL

ClubGonzo (4022) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a magnificent oily black body with a large, creamy caramel-colored, long-lasting head. Nose is dark chocolate, brandy, leather, coffee and hints of licorice, caramel and alcohol. Taste is coffee and brandy up front, then dark chocolate and sweet malts come in before a bit of leather and licorice in the finish. Smooth, velvety full body and soft to medium carbonation. A very nice Baltic Porter from Westbrook.

Bottle shared at Natifest. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small khaki head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark frui, hints of coffee, sticky at times, some caramel pops up with the alcohol being warming. This was very tasty.

A: Pours a pitch black color with a thick, dark mocha head forming on the pour. The retention is top notch. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass. S: This is big beer. Super roasty with some fruity yeast in the periphery. Alcohol notes are present, but it doesnít detract from the roasted malts and big dark chocolate notes. Some cocoa powder is there as well. T: A ton of roasted malts, some char and a touch of cocoa bean. Bitter dark chocolate with some light fruity yeast in the background. Definitely seems like an amped up Baltic porter due to the yeast strain. Enjoyable. M: Low carbonation. Silky smooth across the palate. Medium bodied. Finish is chocolate and big roast. O: This a big and roasty beer, but the yeast strain drops subtle hints that itís still got some Baltic porter bloodlines at heart. Itís pretty ready to go now with the booze well hidden. Donít really see this benefiting from any extended aging. Maybe a year if you want the robust roasted malts to die down a bit. Serving type: bottle

Bottle poured a black color with aromas of chocolate, roast, light earth, and some coffee. Flavors are the same with cbocolate, and roast. A very nice beer that did not have a boozy aftertaste. Another solid beer from Westbrook.
