COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Organic Devout Stout is a religious experience. This stout was originally developed by the vagabond brewer, Dan Satterthwaite, a mentor of Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. And though it has changed subtly over the years, Devout Stout is a popular mainstay at the brewery and inspired the recipe for her unique counterpart, Thy Twisted Sister (Devout Stout brewed with chipotle and cacao nibs).

From the first appearance of the Devout Stout there is no question about the style of this beer. It is a stout in all its depth, darkness and flavor. Imagine an aroma of the darkest Italian roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of anise. Despite what people think, this stout is not made with coffee just organic barley, organic hops and water. Devout Stout has a thick, creamy head that settles lightly on an almost voluptuous body. The mouthfeel is rich and warming. The flavors of the Devout Stout, ebb and flow through sweet and bitter to create an intoxicating elixir that will leave you utterly devoted.

A good basic stout. Pours a thick black with a brown head. Smell is not great, coffee flavors, but also cough medicine. Taste is a little boring, but creamy and refreshing. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Black pour with an off-white head. Aromas of licorice, roast, and coffee. A bit of molasses, some burnt sugar, and mild floral hops. Flavor is a touch on the bitter side. A lot of roast, licorice, and burnt sugar. Mild sweetness of molasses and dark fruit. Nice leafy hop character.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Monterey. Pours an oily brown color with a ruby tint around the edges and a fleeting oatmeal colored head. Smells of dried fruit and malt. Tastes of toasted malt, cocoa, coffee, cream, and dried cherries. Possibly the best "organic" beer I have yet to try.
