COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
North Peak Dubious is a Dark Chocolate Stout that has the perfect combination of chocolate, roast and black malts resulting in a smooth rich beer. Judicious use of hops bring out a complex, yet subtle bittering finished off with a big Goldings nose. This swirl of aroma, flavor and body is underscored by the rich chocolate that is added at the end of the boil. This medium bodied beer is brewed in Traverse City, MI, on Old Mission Peninsula incorporating locally grown hops.

Bottle: Black, with a thick dark tan head. Scent is rich fudge and cream. Taste is cocoa, roasted chocolate malt. A bit of ash... A little thin... Tasty, but predictable.

Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is more of a roasted malt and not much of a chocolate malt. Flavor has more of the chocolate but not really anything over the top. After the swallow a char malt is left on the tongue. This was a big meh for me. There was potential here but nothing really stood out.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Black body. Tan head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, char, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Burnt taste along with some bitter coffee and chocolate.

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2014
The beer pours black with a small tan head, and the aroma is predominantly Hersey’s chocolate syrup, which breaks down into caramel and chocolate malts and vanilla. The taste has a slight malt bitterness, slight sweetness, and a mild umami flavor, and the malt bitterness intensifies through the finish; the mouthfeel doesn’t match what the aroma suggests (and, therefore, causes the overall impression of this beer to fall somewhat flat) due to the thin texture, medium-light body, and soft carbonation.

bpar73 (472) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2014
On tap. Black pour with a thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma and taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Nice, but not outstanding, stout.

AbbeyRoade (317) - Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Ideal chocolate stout. Thick, sweet, excellent flavors with plenty of coffee and malt to hold it all together.

A light bodied stout with strong chocolate flavors, easy to drink, perhaps to easy, its a good beer to try if you are just getting into stouts ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
