COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Brewed at Anheuser-Busch’s Baldwinsville plant.
Since 1889, the distinctive caramel malt of Bass Pale Ale has been at the heart of a pub staple known as the Black & Tan. With the Introduction of Bass Stout, there’s now a perfect stout to pair it with. With its robust flavor of roasted barley, black and chocolate malts and the earthy aroma of England’s legendary Fuggle hops, Bass Stout is sure to please the most fervent stout lover. Bass is pleased to offer Bass Stout in Black & Tan “Pub Kit” 6 packs, which feature three Bass Stouts and three Bass Original Pale Ales. The Bass Black & Tan “Pub Kit” launches launches this fall, also on November 19, 2012. Profile: 4.2% ABV, a non nitrogeneated robust flavored Stout brewed with roasted barley, black and chocolate malts and England’s legendary Fuggle hops.

Duped! Not that I had a lot of respect for Bass, but LOL. Dark pour, moderate head, average at best lace/retention. Aroma is overall light but gives chocolate, lightly roasted, lightly floral. Light bodied, lightly bitter, watery.

Good aroma. Good head. Bad aftertaste. Good alcohol taste. It was ok. I’d buy it again.

Fatehunter (1389) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Poured a quick foaming head of two fingers on a black body. The aroma is roasted malt; a little thin but fine enough. The taste is lacking depth. Some roasted malt, a touch of bitterness. The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation. The stout lacks depth and breadth. Too crisp a texture. Not satisfying in the least.

On tap at MacGregor’s. I came her today for the Stone W00t Stout that was listed on their website and ended up with this. Disapointment! It looked like a Guinness nitro pour. Light stout taste with small amount of chocolate and roast. It was ok.

Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pours a black color with aroma of caramel malt. Taste is very thin, with a watery flavor. No complexity at all, with minimal malt. I am not a fan of this beer.

tgncc (2891) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Thin, watery mouthfeel. Weak in aroma and flavor. Mainly light roastiness. Weak finish, almost no hops. Deep black color, no head. Maybe this beer SHOULD be on nitro. Do yourself a favor and make a Black and Tan with this, as it may be the only way to enjoy it.

Don’t feel like drinking stout. Soft coffee and bailey, mild taste, rather slimy, smooth though. Still below average.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - JUN 15, 2013
A stout from Bass! But it is nothing special, which is what I expected, truth be told. A light, dry stout with a bread/grain aroma. Light coffee and bran muffin. Pretty thin, but not bad. I would take Bass PA over this.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours black with a small brown creamy head and not a lot of lacing. Aroma is roasted malts and some chocolate. Taste is sweet; also roasted malts, caramel some coffee and chocolate slightly bitter. Not spectacular but it is a good beer.

Blairgus (2728) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
2 June 2013, tap. Black with thin, creamy head. Nose is bitter dark chocolate, toast. Thin body and mildly fizzy, a bit creamy. Lots of bitter, dark chocolate. Not as balanced as Guinness. Still, it's decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
