COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

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.

Dark brown/ruby color with a small head. Light roast, some fruitiness in the aroma, maybe banana. Mild chocolate and roast flavor. A bit metallic.

mild roasted smell, taste is similar...very mild stout...good, but not much to rate because of mildness

puboflyons (1873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 17, 2013
From the 355 ml. bottle stamped 15155BF53. The pour is a dark chestnut brown color with ruby hues and a short-lived off-white head that fizzles down to a ring. The aroma includes dark and caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses and a touch of baked chocolate. The body is thin. The taste has a roasted dark malt character with decent sweetness and a clean, dry finish. If you like Guinness Stout you will like this.

Bif (1292) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a black color with a tan head that faded quickly to a few spots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt chocolate with trace of coffee in the background. Tatse of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of coffee in the background. Decent stout bitterness and fairly dry finish with just a bit of lingering bitterness. Moderate body and a decent bit of stout grit. Not a bad stout, probably goes best as part of a "black & tan".

Chudwick (1780) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 5, 2013
12oz bottle - pours black with beige head. Nose is roast and caramel. Sip adds coffee/dark chocolate. Light bitterness and light to medium light body. Easy to drink. a little watery but still a stout weighing in at 4.2% ABV which is still .1% stronger than a Guinness from Ireland.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with a thin sized off white head. Chocolate, roast, grains, and some lighter coffee. I say lighter coffee but everything about this was lighter and somewhat watery.

Dan269605 (209) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Near black pour with thin khaki head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, dark bread. Taste is watered down coffee. This kind of reminds me of Guinness.

ABUSEDGOAT (2277) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
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 (1076) - 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.
