Customer Reviews of “Captain Black Dark”
This blend is an excellent addition to the Captain Black line. So much so that the Captain should become a brevet Rear Admiral immediately. It is much touted to have a vanilla/fruit note. I, however, find that the main taste is a pancake/maple syrup note. It isn't bad, mind. In fact, it's great. It puts me in mind of the hotcakes and syrup from McDonald's. It isn't going to win any complexity or innovation awards, but that isn't what the Captain Black line is for. It's there to be consistent, tasty, and easy to smoke. This new blend holds the name up quite well.

I thought Captain Black Royal was the best, but Captain Black Dark is every bit as GREAT. A delight for pipe smokers everywhere. Enjoy!

My new Favorite from Captain Black! It smokes very tasty and has no bite at all.

So far I have tried Captain Black Cherry, Royal, and Dark. Dark is by far my favorite! It's smooth and smells great!

Captain Black Dark is one of my favorite smoke's

Well I could be wrong but I think Captain Black Dark is the same as Lane BCA.. in fact I was on another web page and noticed the manufacturer of Capt Black Dark was listed as Lane Ltd. I looked at both and looked the same and smelled the same. Either way they both smoke exceptionally well. A great after dinner smoke for me.. very pleasant room note and really no bite to speak of. I think that if more beginners would start with this tobacco, we would have more pipe smokers.

I agree wholeheartedly with all the above. i wish it would come in large tin.

I found it very mellow and no bite at all. Good morning puff, but I find it only smokes well in my cob as the larger leaf cut tends to plug up my briars so I am constantly working it with a pipe nail. The cob gives it a very mild taste.

I received a pouch of this in the Great Place to Start kit and this is a very enjoyable smoke. A smooth tobacco with great aroma, and my wife agrees. I have been an avid cigar smoker for 4 years (CAO, Man O War, Cohiba, and so on) and just started pipes. I'm glad I got this as one of my first pouches.

Was a pretty good smoke, no bite at all, will buy more of it just to have around.

AWESOME and fast delivery.

I recently took advantage of the Captain Black sale to purchase some Captain Black Dark which I really like. However, the bulk version seems to not have the same flavor and aroma as the previous tobacco I purchased in the single 1.5 oz. packets.
RH of Erlanger, KY
Subtle sweetness is what I get from this blend. I will have to dry it a bit as it did not like to stay lit. But this is definitely a good solid "all day smoke" that will be one of my regulars.

I knew I liked the Captain Black Dark but wanted to try the bulk before reviewing it. I received my 5 ounces today, loaded up and headed to the porch. The bulk is ever as good as the pouch so it can save a bundle if you order 4 ounces or more. This Dark is smooth with no bite and it burns good. It is pure pleasure!

My new favorite mourning smoke, had 2 bowls this mourning, it smokes cool, nice room note, no bite at all, hope they put it in large can.
