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.

12 ounce bottle from sampler purchased at a Wegmanís. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin tan head that fades very quickly. Aroma of roasted malts with a bit of chocolate. The taste is sweet malts, caramel, raisins, some roastiness. Thin bodied. Decent.

Bottled. Poured cola brown with a short, but relatively dense khaki head. The aroma picked up very sweet maple and molasses upfront, with light roast to it.. almost a candied impression, but the malts werenít all that enjoyable.. some vanilla on the back. The flavor found very sweet, candied molasses and ground coffee at the core, with plenty of vanilla around.. just a little black malty bitterness in there.. finished sweet with more vanilla and lightly-roasted coffee. Light-medium bodied with low roast on the palate.. somewhat grainy, but a smooth, almost oatmeal-ly feel through the mouth.. not a bad feel, but I wanted a stout.

One of the better offerings from Dundee. Pours a somewhat opaque dark brown with a thin head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted nuts. Flavor is much like a cream soda with some cocoa raisin tones. Mouthfeel is very fizzy making it almost like a soft drink - think root beer. Just above average and the only beer from the Dundee Craft Pack that I have kinda sorta enjoyed.

Looks like stout. Smells like sweet cherries, raisins, almonds, bakerís chocolate. Tastes like sour tamarind, caramel, artificial chocolate flavoring. Feels like gelatin, but with painful needle-sharp carbonation. Comes across like a half-assed attempt by somebody who doesnít even drink beer.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
This pours a deep rown, nearly opaque body with a slender tan head that soon reduces to a film. The aroma is sweet dark malts with a touch of roastiness, perhaps a tad of milk chocolate. Kind of fizzy in the mouth. The flavor is reflective of the aroma with a bit of a cola taste added. As it says on the bottle, itís "Dark and Drinkable," although probably one I wonít be repeating.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2011
A black pour with dark red edges and a tan head. The aroma is mildly sweet with just a hint of roasted chocolate. The light to medium body has a oily texture with average carbonation. The taste is sweet, but there is a faint roasted coffee taste that develops late in the finish.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Appearance: Pours out a black body with an expansive, light beige head that soon settles into a scant layering.

Smell: Malty albeit mild nose, nothing particularly effusive here, but smelling of semi-sweet chocolate, sugary caramel, weak coffee, and an opened box of Sun-Maid raisins.

Taste: Sweetly toned tastes of both chocolate and caramel maltiness rounded out with roasted grains and a quick swig of instant coffee. Small, muted hint of licorice. Raisiny fruitiness. Essentially no real, appreciable hop character or bitterness, leaving it to maintain its sweetness throughout. Light flavor of roasted barley on the sweetish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A bit underwhelming, as nothing from the aroma to the flavor really grabs you. A simple, sweet stout, landing pretty light when it comes to overall taste, hop character, and body.

Deep brown. Aroma of dark malts, light meaty note, caramel, chocolate. Touch of sweetness and malty on palate. Decent.

(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) espresso/ruby pour with few tan bubbles. Nose of sweet chocolate, raisin, chocolate chips and cocoa. Started out well, but it didnít taste like it smells. Taste is highly metallic, cocoa, and raisins.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light mocha head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with just a touch of roast. Super sweet, almost like milk chocolate candy bar and caramel. Flavor starts sweet and slightly promising but picks up some unpleasant stale candy and old sugary caramel notes that just donít fit. Not nearly enough roast and complexity beyond chocolate. Mediumish body and a higher carbonation. Meh
