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.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Darker brown color with a big roasty coffee/chocolate aroma. Flavor seemed a bit bland, though drinkable with roast and dark chocolate. Thin feel. OK, but subpar for these guys.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Dark black, healthy head. Smells malty and tastes like it has a touch of cocoa. Not a bad stout and a nice change from all these high gravity stouts everyone seem to make these days. Solid beer and Im glad my cousin brought it to me and I wish I had a bottle of the old chez monieux to follow it up.. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-14-2008 02:37:30

A- Pours a solidly opaque black hue, head is full of off-white biog bubble that dissipates to a relatively thin layer, lacing is moderate on the glass S- Nose is big-time dominated by huge coffee flavors, this is as close to a cup of java that I can think of, tons of roast and a surprising absence of any other malts or hops, i hope you like coffee! T- Initial taste is unsurprisingly dominated by bitter and roasty coffee flavors, some slight hops peek through, but this is totally java-forward M- Light-to-medium bodied, watery texture, light carbonation D- Very easy-to-drink stout at 5%abv, this is definitely a good match for coffee lovers (everyone else will be less impressed), there are more solid options in both the Stout and Alpine categories (hopefully)

Bottle from South Bay Drug. Very dark color with minor ruby hilites. Decent tan head. Aromas of chocolate and darkly toasted malt. Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is harsh coffee, some chocolate, and a solid toasted malt. Very nice stout.

alexsdad06 (9727) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a medium sized beige head. I had to work to get what little aroma there was. Dark malt, cocoa, and coffee. The flavor had what can best be described as a roasty sourness. This was a bit burned with too much carbonation. Perhaps this was too old and was on the way downhill fast? Needless to say, I expected more.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Tap at The Local. Dark black beer with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly roasty with a fairly prominent cocoa and chocolate nose. A light toasted malt character and a bit of herbal hoppiness as well. Good light sweetness and a touch of sweet maltiness through the middle. Lingering sweetness, chocolatey with a good balance of roast and sweetness.
