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.

There is no head or lacing on this stout (poured from bottle). There is definitely a roasted malt aroma and taste to it, the problem is, it tastes like a generic stout. The only thing good to use this beer for is a cheap black and tan.

EtTuCthulhu (991) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
The appearance of this beer combines a dark brown color with a medium tan head that fades quickly, and the aroma combines chocolate malts with roasted ones. The taste fuses a mild umami and a touch of bitterness and sweetness, and the palate combines an average carbonation, slick texture, medium body, and a definite long roasted finish.

Elwood (3022) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very dark brown with slight ruby highlights and short lived, light tan head. The nose has a bit of roast with a slight vegetal note. The flavor has a weird sourness to it with a little nuttiness and slight burnt notes. Dry finish. Similar to Guinness but given the options, I’ll take a Guinness instead.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a very dark brown color with a large tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of chocolate and the faintest bit of roast. The taste is chocolate and mild hops. Thin and watery.

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 oz. Opaque with a covering of sticky foam. Mild nose of coffee, char, caramel and a dash of orange zest. Taste is caramel apple, sour berry, bittersweet chocolate, with a touch of char on the finish. Medium body is soft and well balanced, but is a tad too fizzy with medium-high carbonation.

DocLock (7696) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours burnt sienna with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is roasty charred black patent malt, mild cacao, choc malt, hops. Tastes of charred black malt, mild cacao, dry with some hops. Comes off as a hoppy black lager, and a watery one at that.

thegreenrooster (3155) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Poor is a inky black with a small tan head. Aroma is actually a pretty decent roast with an ever so slight coffee. Flavor is much weaker. A very minor roast with some dirty malt and a bit of sourness. Probably should not get the low rating it has. Just slightly above par b/c of the nice aroma it gave off.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2013
Soft, nutty roast aroma with ale overtones. Good packaging, inky beer, an almost purple tan head. Dry, lightly acidic roast flavor, slight nuttiness. Medium-light body, frothy mouthfeel. Sessionable, but it won’t put hair on your chest. ABC, Betton.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2013
The 12 oz bottle poured dark mahogany, looking near black in my snifter. The modest tan head soon reduces to a thin partial coat and a ring that leaves spotty lacing. The earthy aroma is mostly just from roasted grain, although there is a hint of hops. Taste: rather simple and mild, with minimal (for style) dark roasted grain but some earthy, peppery, and mildly bitter hops that lead to a fairly good finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel: medium-thin body with relatively lively, medium carbonation and a slighly dry finish. Overall: a mild and simple but acceptable stout that is a bit weak on flavor,
