COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and Drinkable. A smooth and classic sweet stout. This dark rich brew is a combination of roasted malts and hops that bring the chocolate and coffee flavors to life.

Letís say you up and decide to throw a wooden barrel of ale in a public display of manliness (I know, just go with it). How then to celebrate? Hint: Youíre holding the answer. Thatís right, a Dundee Stout. "Stout" is, after all, what brewers have been calling the darkest, heaviest and "burliest" of their ales since 18th century England. That said, ours is sweet, creamy and ironically, pretty light in texture. So maybe the tough partís not lifting it after all. The tough partís putting it down once you have. Go figure.

The appearance of this beer is a deep, dark brown with a small off-white head, and the aroma is subtle with a hint of roasted malts. The taste is slightly sweet and slightly umami, which balance each other nicely, especially once the combination of the medium body, the thick yet slick texture, the soft carbonation, and the abrupt finish are considered.

More like a porter than a stout--none of the smokier or bitter-ish notes that would characterize say, a Guinness. A tad sweet, but not cloying like a Budweiser. A pleasant enough beer that could be enjoyed with summertime activities.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Opaque Black With Shades of Red, Medium Small Head, Good Retention, Decent Lacing. Faint Chocolate, Roasted Malt Aroma. Toasted Malt, Faint Sweet Chocolate, Vanilla, Slightly Sour Finish. Rather Thin although It has Some Creaminess to It. Rather Decent, Easy To Drink And Enjoyable. Probably one of he better Ones from Dundee Lineup.

GnarlyGnome (803) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle: pours a very dark mahogany with a light tan head, that dissipates very quickly, Itís aromas are nothing fancy... sweetish maltiness, with a slight soy saucy sorta scent going on in the background. The flavor is a bit boring... sweet... not nearly as roasty as I was hoping for. Itís not something I would pour out, but not something I would ever hunt down, to drink again.

Calling this a stout is quite generous. Smells like Budweiser. It looks dark and has nice lacing but that's where it ends. I'm not sure I'll finish it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastmaster (367) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bought for $1.50 at an Indian market.bottle, pours dark with a then head. Smells like raisins and a bit sweet. Not a very thick stout. But true to what the bottle says it outs drinkable. I was expecting worse for $1.50. There is a balance that this beer has that is not common for other balanced stouts. I would call this a light feminine stout. Would buy more foor $1.50 but this was their last one.

Bulk_Carrier (2779) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2013
It pours a pitch black and gives the same color body in my nonic. The tan lumpy two centimeter head appears, rises just a bit and settles down and leaves a light bit of foamy lacing. The smell has sweet roasty notes of chocolate with some light coffee in the background. The taste has the same sweet and roasty smell with the malts combined very nicely. The palate is mostly light with some sharp prickles on my tongue. Overall, mostly good, decently drinkable, perhaps revisiting would be worth it depending upon what else was served.

thedm (5156) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 30, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated semi-opaque dark cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was dark malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt and dark malt. A good session beer that I would consider buying again.

chinchill (3117) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 undated 12 oz bottle from a Dundee "Seasonal Variety Pack" served in a pint glass. Pours very dark brown with a large and durable tan head. Medium-full and very creamy body with well-chosen light carbonation. Adequate hops to produce good sweet/bitter balance, although dark roasted malt dominates the taste. O: a clearly above average stout were it not for the poor aroma.

Taste like a pale ale with no real chocolate or coffee flavors, nice aroma though. Simple and very drinkable stout surprised to see all of the low ratings.
