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.
