COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clout Stout is a Russian Imperial Stout brewed for the beer connoisseur with the patience to age his/her beer. Poured from the bottle it is black and thick, initially sweet and full bodied before developing into a smooth, bittersweet finish. 10.6% ABV gives Clout Stout huge complexity and depth - each sip warms and hypnotizes the drinker.

The aroma is of roast coffee beans. It is initially spicy at start but it settles down. There is a slice of licorice and chocolate but it gives way to a luxury mouthfeel that is creamy malt. Finishes bitter. Quality brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StevieT (1379) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2016
On tap at The Woolly Mammoth. Such a massive beer with so much going on, thick, rich and heavy on the bitter chocolate finish, the massive ABV is well hidden. A truely awesome beer.

ANZUShophunter (247) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2015
2012 bottle in a porter glass. Pours black with two-finger brown head that presents mocha and a bit of licorice on the nose. Taste is quite smooth with a nice chocolate liqueur sort of finish. Worth the wait.

ladnewton (1738) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Draught at Tippler’s Tap, Brisbane on 6th September 2015. Black with pale tan head and spot lacing. Coarse pickly aroma with Jalapeño pepper/corned beef/smoke seeming to disagree in the nose. Rough old coffee and sourness in-mouth with soy sauce notes. Aniseed, coffee and sharp black pepper in the finish. Light-bodied for its strength. Failed to live up to expectation at this time, happy to uprate should I have a fresh opportunity.

Dervock (850) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle - pours black with next to no head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, soy sauce, treacle and dried fruit. Nice dry rich roast malt taste. Great palate, whole mouth gets a coating.

whoisghost (185) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2015
Deep black with a thin tan head, I put it down to the pour though. Dark chocolate and raisins on the nose, slight hint of leather amd Christmas fruit cake - not as rich as I’d expected but subtle complexity. So smooth for its ABV - spicey and malt combined, it’s blown me away. Rich in the mouth, velvet and so thick. This is amazing.

beer-yum (1211) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Alluringly complex aroma with a hint of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and licorice in an inky black pour. Flavour is milky smooth and similarly subtlety complex. Makes an excellent end of session brew.

floydian1 (1301) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 27, 2015
Tap @ Alehouse Project, Melbourne (2015 release). Pours matt black with a small beige head. A Russian Imperial stout with lots of rich dark chocolatey malts, dark fruits, burnt caramel, alcohol and expresso coffee on the nose and tongue. Rich creamy warming full body with a velvet smooth texture and intense flavours. Quite sweet overall. One to sip and savour.
