4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Itís not a stout, people, read your beer history! :) Itís an oatmeal porter basically and follows the original meaning of the word "stout" before it was butchered (Guiness anyone?). This beer pours with a nice head, tight lacing, and looks beautiful in the light. Itís got a nice smooth, sweet taste and pairs well with a variety of food (my favorite is pork). Great mouth feel
Hereís the description from the brewery: "ĎStoutí for many years meant a Porter of substantial
strength and at several times and places in history the
term ĎDouble Brown Stoutí has signified a variety dark,
strong brews. Our favorite is the Scandinavian or Baltic
version, emphasizing the chocolate-y and dark dried fruit
character over the burnt or ashy roast flavors of some its
cousins. Unlike most members of the Stout and Porter
family, our DBS is fermented with a lager yeast (rather
than ale), whose cleaner fermentation profile allows the
malt and hop flavors do the talking."

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Is this a brown ale or a stout b/c you sure canít tell from the name? I take it, itís more of a stout which is a shame b/c itís a terrible mess of a stout. Just waaaaay too sweet and syrupy. Zero roastiness and smokey flavor. I had trouble chokeing this one down. Iíve had these guys other beers and they are good but this is a bad representation of a stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Common Table.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is great, with a ton of chocolate up front and a little bit of roasted malt also mixed in. Definitely the aroma of a big, flavorful beer.
The flavor doesnít disappoint. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as some oaked notes and some lactose. The beer is very creamy and all of the aroma and flavor notes seem to go very well together.
Medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
