BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Westbrook Brewing Co.
South Carolina, United States
westbrookbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our Second Anniversary beer, we tapped into the legendary fictional adventures of the mythical Cap'n Skoon to bring you this monster Baltic Stout. It's big and roasty like an imperial stout but fermented with a German lager yeast. Ideal for sipping now, or be like the Cap'n and stash some away in your cargo hold for the years to come. Cheers!

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 12/18/2012.

Appearance - Very inky and dark. Stains the glass. Small khaki head. Wispy surface.

Smell - Dark fruits. Intense roast. Raisins. A little oxidized and a ton of black patent malt.

Taste - Really raisiny. Could be a result of age. Very bitter malts. Ashy coffee malts. Bitter.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This could be too old. Seems strange that it would be. Either way, it's intense.

Got the body of Cake, but the flavor is fleeting with a dry chalky finish

Thanks to johntangus for sending me this.

Pours thick and solid dark black, a very dark brown head of about an inch.

Smells of roasted malt, some mild smoke, malty chocolate.

Tastes somewhat more complex, begins with a pretty sweet malty chocolate character reminiscent of a Baltic porter, fades into a smokier roast character and finishes with bitter dark chocolate. Very good, interesting progression.

Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, very good and easy to drink for such a big beer.

Wasn't sure what to expect from a "Baltic stout" but this does have characteristics of both a Baltic porter and an imperial stout. Very nice beer.

7.6/10
