Notes / 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.

Bottle purchased from Stearn's Liquor in Long Beach. Poured into Bruery tulip. Good carbonation yields a nice head and leaves a fluffy ring around the glass. Smells malty and sweet. Some notes of chocolate and coffee. Taste is pretty good. Seems standard for a regular stout. A little sweet. Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall it's a solid beer. Nothing exciting but nothing disappointing. I would drink it if I found it on tap, but I wouldn't go out of my way to seek it out

A: Poured a jet black with a light brown head. was a good fingers worth of head that slowly dissolved.

S: Big time aromas of freshly brewed black coffee, nice roastiness with tones of malt and a hint of dark chocolate.

T: Big difference from the massive aromas versus taste. For as big as the coffee tones hit your nose its not nearly as big on the palate. So for those who dont like big roasty taste this one is for you.

M: Relatively light, there is a mild bite of carbonation but nothing overpowering. after taste in the mouth leaves a almost milk chocolate feeling.

O: Not bad, especially for the price (around 4/5 bucks). Definitely a nice starter to stouts. I would consider this a great gateway beer from getting people off the Guinness and Murphy kind of watered down stouts.
