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!

Pours a pitch black, opaque, very dark, rich brown head. Dissipates to a ring, with lots of lacing. The aroma is heavy on the roast, with dark fruits, bitterness, coffee, and cocoa. Taste leads with dark fruits, earthy yeast, bitter cacao, light coffee, big roast finish. Full bodied, chewy, and thick. Alcohol is well hidden and it drinks quite easy.

While Mexican Cake may have tastes better initially, it can get a bit spicy as it warms...this stays quite consistent, if not better as it warms. A great beer overall.
