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.

bhensonb (11489) - 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.

hopdog (9133) - 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.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2013

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Nitro at Iron Horse tap room. Reverse cascade nitro head. Dense and creamy. Muted mild coffee nose. Taste surprisingly decent. Lactic, dense, dairy, low bitterness, mild semisweet chocolate. No off flavors just a tad weak for Irish dry stout. Sessionable and clean.

DocLock (8054) - 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.

shrubber85 (7938) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Very light chocolate malt aroma. Dark black with moderate tan head. Chocolate barley malt flavor. Light ashy finish. Nothing bad - better than the bottled/canned Guinness you get in the states.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2013
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 (5108) - 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.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 17, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild mild roasted malt aftertaste. The tangy flavor contained notes of roasted malt burnt malt brown malt dark malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
