For the hardcore maltsters, we offer a huge stout that’s got plenty of bark but no bite. Full bodied with a creamy head and texture, Scout boasts a prodigious amount of Chocolate malt and Roasted barley to lend a strong black coffee mocha flavor. Northern Brewer hops balance out the heady malty flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. The complex character, clean finish and handsome black color will turn even the shyest beer drinker into a stout fan.

More complex than the oatmeal stout, but also a touch more abrasive and not quite as smooth. More bitter than sweet, with a good deal of roasted malt.

Had on tap while watching "her" at Coxe location. Great stout. All the flavours you would expect. Pours deep and opaque. Head could linger a bit longer. Great creamy mouthfeel- almost chewable. Has some bitterness for balance but drinks smoothly. Really enjoybale. Favorite brew by ABC. Makes me sad stout season is coming to an end.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2012
Originally reviewed 1/14/10. This is apparently a new offering by this little brewpub. Came out a deep black with a thin mocha head on top. Left nice sip rings and little lace spots. Scents of roasted malts and nuts, and a slight coffee twang. Full, creamy body on this beer. Almost chewable. Flavors of dark bitter chocolate, a mild creamy sweetness in the middle, and a slight charring finish. This is a very well-made stout. I liked it a lot. Recommend.

blipp (8267) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with some sweet chocolate notes. The flavor has roasted and lightly burnt malts, coffee, light dark chocolate sweetness, and just a hint of smoke. Good stuff.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty with subtle nuttiness. Body is not overly thin. Bakers chocolate, roast, light maltiness, and bitter on the finish.

bubbleflubber (2164) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2011
On draught at the brewer’s theater location. Pours deep mahogany with walnut fringes and a settled tan head that leaves light soap lacing. Roasty nose with some dark esters and subtle chocolate. Roasted malt with hints of light fruit, coffee beans and roasty bitters. A little licorice in there toward the end alongside the bitter coffee finish. Creamy palate with a thin body and subtle carbonation. Decent stout.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2010
On tap at the merrimon location. Pours a deep dark brown near black, frothy tan head. Aroma is very roasty, pine, licorice and anise is pretty big, decent amounts of dark chocolate, and light fruity esters- some coffee hints. Flavor is moderate roast, some coffee, chocolate mint, pine, anise, leather and earth- medium sweet middle with a bit harsh burnt malts in the end with lots of mineral prickliness in the end. Ok.

Pours an opaque black color with a light brown head. Aroma is caramel, roast, plum, slight crystal malt sweetness, and some sweet floral hops. Flavor is malty, roast, dark fruit, some toast, and a roasty bitter finish.
