COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, complex, and top hat-black, Trout Stout boasts a distinctly dry roasted flavor to please the serious stout lover. Fish Brewing creates its Trout Stout using five different varieties of malt for a very complex, smooth character. The Mighty Fish Brewers begin with Carastan, Crystal, Black and Munich malts. Then, an additional portion of roasted unmalted barley enters the blend to achieve a roasted-coffee flavor. The hop profile of Trout Stout is dominated by Chinook hop bitterness. Cascade hops contributed the hop flavor and aroma, but in a subdued manner so as not to overwhelm the stout’s delicious malt profile. Available October - March

Bottle. (Remembered from past tastings) A friend of mine brought this to me from the brewery originally started by his brother. Yes I am biased here. I don’t remember much other than both my friend and his brother were first rate home brewers and I liked everything they brewed so gotta score this respectfully. I’m happy to see that so many years later this brewery lives on.

Draft at the brewpub. Black. Very light rim of burnt tan. Nice roasty coffeeish nose. Medium body, a little watery in spots. Nice coffee and roast come through in a big way on the mid-palate; there’s a pronounced bite to this one. Lightly coffee-sour and peppery hop finish.
