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.

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.

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.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
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.

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

demitriustown (1090) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2013
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!

marcus (6784) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a treacle and coffee aroma. There is a dry thin burnt malt flavor and little else.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
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. 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.
