Formerly known as Martin House There Will Be Stout
That’s right, The Original Pretzel Stout. This 6.5% abv stout is as black as West Texas Intermediate and is brewed with over six pounds of crushed sourdough pretzels per barrel. Guess what? There’s no style guideline for this one. The salty fingerprint of the pretzels works with the sweet and roasty flavors of the chocolate malted & roasted barley to give this beer a flavor that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

Pint glass at DH- served a used motor oil black, thin tan ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of gummi bears, roasted malt, and some baker’s cocoa. Hits the mouth with a wide and hard body, malt has a little bit of caramel in it, a light salt sensation in the middle, finish is milky and complete. Yea!

Pours black with thick brown head out of can. Aroma of roasted cocoa and malt. Flavor of roast on the front end and saltiness on the back end. Pretty good stout for being brewed with pretzels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473ml can. Dark pour with a tanish head. It is okay, some fruit flavors, pretzel flavor in the finish. A pretty mediocre stout.

Jet black with a brown head. Roasted malt aroma. Full body. Slight saltiness? Nice bittering hops. Full flavored malty roasted profile. Nice.

Can thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Black pour with a 1 finger head that fades to a nice thick film. Great appearance. Aroma is big, roasty, and a little sweet. Tastes like dark roast coffee, light campfire smoke, light chocolate, and salt. It does kinda taste like pretzels mixed with roasted coffee. Full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this one.

Beerenberger (1545) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2014
16 oz. can -The nose is subtle - roasted malt and perhaps some bread. The pour is ink black supporting a large rocky khaki head with loads of lacng. The taste is a brunt malt, dark chocolate, and bread. The saltiness, while subdued, becomes apparent in the finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Chalky mouthfeel. Overall, an enjoyable local dry stout.
