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.

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2011
12 oz. bottle from a Shop N Save mix. This pours almost black with only a little red. Little foam and that ends in a thin ring. A light coffee and chocolate aroma. The first sip is light cocoa and decent bittering hops. There is also some dark fruit that works fairly well with the chocolate backbone. This is like a dark colored brown ale and is a marginal stout.

Bottle. Dark pour with mocha head that disappeared quickly. Cocoa, lickourish, cereal and caramel. lighter, limited character. Not impressed

rocbyter (1892) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Sweet robust malt aroma. Black color with a small brown head. Roasted malt flavor in the beginning that fades in the finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2200) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2011
a vinous old ale flavor hits you right away and that aroma is ever present in this brew that is dark caramel brown with a head that fades completely in short order. the roasted cocoa flavor arrives and is enough in my mind. body is light but not in any way amiss as it delivers body and flavor thruout. i find it somewhat demonstrative and an interesting as well as refreshing stout particularly for warm days. bit of root particularly light sassafras flavor.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Definitely a lighter stout. Pretty average with a malty aroma and flavor. Not too alcoholic or filling.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011
St. Maryís Ga. - J Pís Spirit and Wines - 12 oz bottle. Dark black, motor oil looking pour with a thin, but long lasting khaki colored head. Aroma has some earthy, potting soil accents, a bit of black coffee. Solid stout flavor with some dark unsweetened chocolate, potting soil, day old black coffee. Mouthfeel has a nice bit of chalkiness to it, Rather impressed.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle pours deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of brown sugar and dark fruit.

pottygok (441) - Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2011
Aroma: Hints of chocolate malt, but mostly a skunky beer smell Appearance: Black with minimal, if not non existent head. Taste: Light sweetness followed by a medium sourness. Palate: Medium-full body, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: Itís drinkable, but Iím really unimpressed. This has little depth or character and tastes almost like a lager imitating a stout by putting on black clothes and a malty aftershave.

Mora2000 (5549) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2011
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Looks like a stout should look like. The aroma is not very good. I get a little bit of roasted malt and coffee, but there is also a bit of something that resembles cough medicine. The flavor is heavy on the chocolate and coffee and actually tastes pretty good. Much better than it smells. I also get some roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation.

daknole (8914) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Clear brown pour. Barely any head. Aroma is sugary, brown sugar, and raisins. Flavor is overly sweet, metallic, and pretty damn bad.
