Stout is a black ale. Ours is highly hopped, moderately high in alcohol and boasts a rich roasted barley and chocolate malt flavor. It chimes a Big Ben & mash.

20101011 Nitro at Wharf Rat. Dark brown with usual nitro head. Aroma is a touch vegetal, but mainly coffee and dark roast grain. Pleasant roastiness throughout, with soft, light body and lingering leafy bitterness. Mild sourness, bready. Nice match with a load of deep fried schwag.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 9, 2009
On tap @ Pratt St Ale House. Black with a creamy dense tan head. Mild roasty aroma with some bittersweet chocolate scents. Flavor is sweet with a bitterness from the roasty qualities. Medium body with a mild carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Pretty darn close to Guinness.

Appearance: Black color, tan head, lots of lace
Flavor: Strong roasted malt flavor with a bit of hops 7/8

baraciisch (2033) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Black in color with rich creamy tan head... Aroma is extremely malty, but the flavor is surprisingly hoppy for a stout... Like a stout and pale ale fused together... Initially very malty with rich roasted barley flavor, but finish has a touch of bitterness, very mild however, probably from English hops... Very nice beer.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2009
On tap, @ Wharf Rat. Pours a pitch black body with a creamy brown nitro head. Nice roasty and black patent malt nose with some coffee, bitter chocolate, and leafy hops. A big molasses note came out late when it warmed up a good bit. Nice smooth flavor, not overly burnt or roasted with a nice bitterness level on the back end. Pretty hoppy for the style, but I dig it. Mouthfeel is the usual nitro feel, but it’s got a bit more body and substance than the usual. Overall, pretty nice. I could have a nice session with this guy pretty easy.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Nitro at Frisco Grille labeled simply as ’’Olivers Oatmeal Stout.’’ Pours a deep brown with a eighth inch creamy tan head, coating lacing. Medium bodied with a smooth creamy texture. Mild chocolate and roast aroma. Flavor of dark roast, milk, and oats countered by a firm coffee-esque bitterness. I could use a little more sweetness. Finish has a lingering husky graininess.

on tap-pours a rich, creamy, cascading light brown head and black color. Aroma is dark malt-roasty/bakers chocolate, hint of acidic. Taste is dark malt-roasty/bakers chocolate, hint of acidic-hops, dry finish. Not my taste but nice. Occasional.
