COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Captain is leader of a fire crew. This beer takes charge of your taste buds with its rich flavor. Roasty malt character that has hints of chocolate and coffee which balances the smooth, velvety finish. The thick, creamy head lasts and lasts, leaving lace in your glass as your beer disappears. This beer pairs well with food. Great with dinner or as breakfast or even with a rich vanilla-bean ice cream.

Taps rich coffee brown with a nice tan head. Aroma presents roast malt, coffee, chocolate and molasses tones. Flavor pleases with roast malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee, earthy, and subtle molasses tones. Mouthfeel has firm, velvety smooth body yet plenty of fizz. Fit for a captain!

jc1762 (959) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Small shaker showing a black center, coffee rims, and spare latte colored foam. The nose shows a lot of roasted malt darkness. the palate is very light bodied with a lot of chocolate immediately noticeable and a roasted malty bitterness on the finish. A bit too light for a stout but still pretty good.

draft that poured a medium brown with white head. really not sure you can call this a stout versus a black ipa. if its a stout then the flavor is all wrong if its a black ipa then you are right on target medium roasted malt base with a huge hop nose. the flavor is more of the same nice hoppy flavor start to finish on a medium roasted malt base evenly balanced but you need to get the style right.

Draft. Dark brown color, brown head. Lots of ashy, roasty coffee, malt with a bit of chocolate and toffee. Dry, dry finish. Nothing too extraordinary, but when you want a 6% stout...
