Aspen Brewery’s 10th Mountain Stout is just what you need after a cold day in the Elk Mountains. Centered primarily along British Oatmeal Stouts, the malty sweetness and subtle smokiness of this brew will warm you up wonderfully, despite its relatively low alcohol content. Our mash of 2-Row, Chocolate, Caramel, and Roasted barleys are balanced with oat flakes and grassy Fuggle hops – a British favorite – to allow for a hearty, satisfying stout that is both drinkable and fulfilling. If you’re looking for a second wind after snowshoeing, snowboarding, skiing, or any winter sport for that matter, all you need is a couple pints of 10th Mountain. Pick up a growler of 10th Mountain at Aspen Brewery! When you drink it is up to you – but we hear 10th Mountain makes for a killer breakfast beer!
We would also like to recognize the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army as a source of inspiration for 10th Mountain Stout. The 10th Mountain Division used the mountains around Aspen as training sites in preparation for World War II. Following the war, many of the skiing soldiers returned, and helped place Aspen on the map as a ski town.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber bought at their tasting room.
Two fingers of dark tan head on a black body. Low retention on the head though.
The smell has a faint roasted malt and smoke.
The taste is dark bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Pretty good.
Smooth texture, low carbonation and heavy body.
A great stout with a solid profile.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with light smokiness, overall a fairly subdued smell. Taste is smooth (on nitro), though not very deep or complex. A pretty average oatmeal stout.
