American Stout Ale
At GoodLife Brewing, we add Northwest twists to all our creations and feel this beer is a perfect example. Why you ask? Well, it is an American Stout, a category that is the outcome of US based brewers’ vision for a stout, resulting in a smooth bodied ale with subtle hints of roasted malt and chocolate combined with a slight coffee and cocoa character. Yes, there are more twists, but we forgot to write them down.

The label of this beer is a work of art that has a few twists of its own. Created with the help of a lady loaded with artistic ability and soul, it tells a story. Did they wearer of the boots, hike the pass in the backdrop? Did they pitch a tent with purpose? Did they celebrate a day in the outdoors with our stout? Are they passed out – ah asleep? We hope the answers are unequivocally yes.

Life is short - live it with purpose, share your stories and always sleep well so you can make it over that Pass and have a Stout.

Malt:Marris Otter, Midnight Wheat, Crystal 60, Chocolate Malt, Rolled Oats; Carafoam

Great beer, no complaints here. I drank it too fast though, in a rush to leave.

On tap at sunriver. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. A light toast nose. Sour metallic flavor, vanilla, sort of thin. Ok. Drinkable. Needs some body.

More. MORE I said! Thank you Goodlife, for making life good. I didn’t pass out after this Pass Stout, but had I have, it would have been sweet Wintery dreams. Looks great, a nice tan creamy and foamalicious noggin on this liquid scroggin. Oats, cocoa, root beer, vanilla, coffee and burnt bread kiss your rosy winter nose. Taste is wonderfully the same, nutty too with a great thicker texture. Pass me another Stout.

On tap at Brooklyn. It’s rare that a stout disappoints me. This one did. Watery, mild, Bready maybe? White-bread, certainly.

Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose was rather dry and fairly roasty, and reminded me more of the dry stout style. Taste was also quite roasty and slightly bitter, and even drier than the nose implied. Decent, but not overwhelming.

Brown. Medium off white head. Weak lace. Carmwly flavor. Mesium thin body. Brown malty aroma with some hop bitterness. A bitter stout ale with a caramel/toffee finish.
