Very nice alternative to Guinness, definitely a fresher product. Very nice toffee notes, and creamy head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black with a red hue and a three inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, some chocolate, and a touch of hops. Aroma is similar, but a bit lighter. Lots of Bass Ale notes in the aroma and tastes. The body is decent and a bit on the lighter side. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Reminds me of Guinness, but without the nitrogen.

On tap at MacGregors. Pretty one dimensional, but decent. Creamy (nitro pour), nice looking dark and reddish. Plenty of chocolate in this, like chocolate malt. Not much else.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bready coffee aroma. Pitch black, watery appearance. First taste is bitter coffee, roasted malt. Finishes with a nice combo of sweet and bitter. More flavor than expected.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
