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.

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.

Aurelius (3903) - 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.

nearbeer (3427) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Nearly black, red backlights with a thick, greyish, tan head. Scent is cola, chocolate....light smoke. Taste is fairly simple fare.....dark chocolate over coffee and cola. Watery and light, but not bad.

thegreenrooster (3082) - 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.

Elwood (2960) - 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.

tgncc (2662) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Thin, watery mouthfeel. Weak in aroma and flavor. Mainly light roastiness. Weak finish, almost no hops. Deep black color, no head. Maybe this beer SHOULD be on nitro. Do yourself a favor and make a Black and Tan with this, as it may be the only way to enjoy it.

queenholly (2611) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle.Chocolate and light coffee aroma. Black with a moderate tan head. Watery chocolate, barley malt, and roasty flavor. Light side of medium body, lively carbonation. Rather easy drinking.

Blairgus (2415) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
2 June 2013, tap. Black with thin, creamy head. Nose is bitter dark chocolate, toast. Thin body and mildly fizzy, a bit creamy. Lots of bitter, dark chocolate. Not as balanced as Guinness. Still, it's decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at MacGregor’s. I came her today for the Stone W00t Stout that was listed on their website and ended up with this. Disapointment! It looked like a Guinness nitro pour. Light stout taste with small amount of chocolate and roast. It was ok.
