3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bass Stout has a thick, creamy beige head, a very dark brown appearance with some ruby highlights around the edges, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, brown bread crust, cream, sugar, and malt. Taste is smokey, charcoal, brown bread, bread crust, and some bitterness, but not really hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bass Stout finishes dry, chalky, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a very nice effort, and I suggest a try. RJT

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got some decent malt characteristics roasted, toasted notes, caramel, light coffee, and an everso lightly hop characteristic. Appearance is a dark black with a thick tan head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste is malt forward with roasted malts upfront, chocolate, light coffee, and caramel coming forward. The hops are more subdued in the taste. Palate has got a medium mouthfeel with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, Not horrible just below average. Cheers!

Bottle from the Davis Co-Op. Mild sweet malt and coffee aroma. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Thin bodied. Flavor is light burnt malt and coffee. Goes to thin ashy burnt malt. Sad to see the red triangle on such a poor effort.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a ruby hue and minimal head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is light bitter. Dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of herbal hops. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, ok. Things were going great until the texture. Meh.

The aroma is slightly burnt with hints of dirty water, coffee, chocolate, and molasses. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. This might have been a decent stout but after the Big Eddy I just had it seems like cheap swill.

On tap at MacGregors. Pretty one dimensional, but decent. Creamy (nitro pour), nice looking dark and reddish. Plenty of chocolate in this, like chocolate malt. Not much else.

Bready coffee aroma. Pitch black, watery appearance. First taste is bitter coffee, roasted malt. Finishes with a nice combo of sweet and bitter. More flavor than expected.
