Nice drinkable stout that was more sweet to me than dry. Very low alcohol for a non-nitrous beer. Meh.

$7.99 fr the "Black and Tan Pub Kit" 6pack. It had the Pale Ale and the Stout side by side. To pint it pours a murky dark brown with a trim biege head. Smells and tastes of Saltine crackers, charcoal, seaweed, plastic, sweat, and artichoke hearts. Drinkable, but that’sabout t.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle - part of a St Patick;s Day gimmicky mix pack with Bass Ale. Dark brown, cola-like pour with redddish tints, quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has some faint cereal notes, a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has some earthy tones, light licorice, some potting soil, a touch of black coffee. Mouthfeel is thick enough, could be a tad chalkier. Decent.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the Black and Tan kit. A light brown sugar head tops a perfectly black colored body. A sweet molasses nose has notes of plums and yeasty raw dough. The flavors are like an ashy cheap tobacco along with notes of sweet tea. There is also a little bit of old green wood. The carbonation is light, yet somehow still sharp on the tongue. This is big glass of OK.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
