COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tap It Brewing’s Full Blown Stout is an Oatmeal style stout that’s built like a fine tuned motor, designed for high RPM and a Smooth Ride. This beer is hand-crafted using the finest selection of Roasted Barley, Oats, Specialty Malts, and Hops, all blended together to create a dark, rich full flavored yet smooth and palatable stout. Our Full Blown Stout gives off a robust aroma of Roasted Barley, accompanied by a touch of dark brown sugar, and just a hint of smoke. The texture of this stout is velvety and well-rounded, with just the slightest acidity which introduces the rich flavor of the roasted malt and caramel characters that show off the compilation of roasted barley, chocolate malt, and crystal malts along with its dark black color; Magnum and Willamette hops have been added for slight perceivable hop bitterness. The finish is a Full Blown complexity of the malts, along with a hint of lingering smokiness that ties all the flavors together.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Almost black with just a little amber. A tan head leaves sticky lacing. A little ash and smoke in the aroma with cocoa. First sip is chocolate fudge with roast behind it. A little tobacco and some surprising complexity. Nuts, melons, herbal, fruit, and earth plus some that i can’t quite identify. This is short of being a great beer, but I found it fun to find the subtle flavors and nuances.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark brown being almost black with a tan head with big bubbles. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate and some smoky ash. Medium, body and a sticky mouthfeel. The flavor is dark roasted malts with a lot of chocolate. a little dark fruit rind, tobacco, nuts, vanilla and some smoke. Finally as Dave point out there is even a hint of citrus. The finish is earthy and dry and a hint of coffee appears. A quite complex beer and full of all kinds of flavors. However all this complexity has a little difficulty hanging together. Not a bad beer by any means but somehow just not quite making the big time.

On draught at Pita Kabob in Visalia. Roast dominates both the aroma and flavor of this beer. Pours near black with brown head. The acidity from the roast is pronounced, and there is also a very dry finish.
