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.

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.

Aurelius (4322) - 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.

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2013
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.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2014
Rated on 4-17-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a large smooth tan head that mostly diminishes, mostly opaque dark brown with a red tint body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted, dark malt, chocolate, light coffee, and a bit earthy. The taste is lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, and earthy. The mouthfeel is clean and thin. This beer is light bodied. Overall, this is an easy drinking beer, but very thin and on the watery side.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - 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.

nearbeer (3816) - 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.

Elwood (3336) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3269) - 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.

queenholly (3007) - 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.

tgncc (2853) - 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.
