Formerly known as Martin House There Will Be Stout
Thatís 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? Thereís 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.

weihenweizen (1825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum can, an extra from Blutt59, poured into a glass. Coal black with big fluffly beige head. Aroma is roasty, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big-bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, some coffee, some herbal hops, salty, and dry finish. Complex, but too salty for me.

SPDickerman (986) - Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Pours dark brown with a small brown fizzy head. Smells of chocolate, hints of roast and toast, subtle notes of coffee. Taste is bready and chocolate, some coffee bitterness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Martin House Pretzel Stout finishes with bitterness and a subtle saltiness.

Creamy mouthfeel. Initial taste is bready, very malty, toasty. After taste is where all the pretzel comes in. The sweet malt fades into a salty taste. Medium length, bitter, coffee finish. Medium bitterness. Overall a full flavored beer with a legit pretzel taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Brandon1989 (240) - Euless, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
the aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, slight pretzel. the taste is similar with the chocolate malt and coffee. i donít pick up the pretzel at first but the saltiness is faint in the aftertaste. very unique beer and well worth a try.

TXBadger (1483) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours black like oil with khaki colored head. Chocolate, roasted malt, bread (pretzel-like), and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. The saltiness of the pretzels come through nicely on the finish and give this stout an interesting character.

I only rate beers I love or hate. This is a why didnít they think of that beer. The salt in the beer will have you coming back for this one. Iím sorry, aroma, head, etc...I donít really care.
