COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We arent afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something youve been looking for in a beer.

Avery tends to make a good Stout no matter the strength. As one of their lighter ABV Stouts, Out of Bounds is just as rich and satisfying as some of their black behemoths. Its an exceptionally beautiful pour that showcases the reverse drag beer phenomenon of downward-flowing bubbles and the foam settling to blackness as the glass fills - the kind of thing I never get tired of watching. This beer smells and tastes as good as it looks too. Rich, roasty, and slightly creamy. Dark chocolate and coffee notes with subtler hints of licorice and dark fruit. Some bright, lightly bitter roasted character at the start and a dry finish. If I were passing the evening in a pub, I could drink this all night.

Balanced. Black berries with milk and a bit of licorice and vanilla with roasted malts. Bit simple. Still great stout.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2016
Dry stout from this Boulder-based brewery, with pale yellowish beige, creamy, medium thick head, slowly diminishing in the middle and leaving small dots of lacing on the edge of the glass; very dark, hazy chestnut brown robe with burgundy hue, black in general appearance but in fact still translucent if you look closely. Aroma is heavily dominated by umami elements: strong gravy, beef stock cubes and broth, over more subtle elements like coffee grounds, leather, bayleaf, old black chocolate, blackcurrant, fig, black olive, coffee cream. Soft sweetishness in the onset, subtle dried banana and dried fig, immediately overcome by the umami factor, very meaty and beefy, gravy-like, with the expected undercurrent of roasted barley sourishness accompanying it; carbo is soft, resulting in a moelleux, fatty and oily body, gliding thickly but smoothly over the tongue and leaving behind a deeply nutty and toasted maltiness which develops into coffeeish roasted bitterness in the end, supported by the promised dosis of peppery, herbal hop bitterness, bit resinous even. Spicy and malty finish, roasted bitterness filling the back of the mouth, but some of the nutty sweetishness remains behind too along with a notable, late, more delicate coffee-like aspect. Decent and enjoyable stout, nice thick body in spite of having only 6.3% ABV, but heavily tilted towards the umami side which I think will not please anyone. I liked it.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - JUL 26, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore nero corvino, impenetrabile; bella anche la schiuma color nocciola, compatta e dalla buona persistenza. Laroma si accende forte, con orzo tostato, caff tostato e note di cioccolato amaro; seguite da aromi seducenti di buccia darancia, frutti di bosco e liquirizia. Intricato, complesso profilo palatale. che attesta di volta in volta, cacao, caff espresso, sapori di malto caramellato e resinosi, quasi di pino. Assertivo amaro da luppolo e cereali tostati, ma mantiene un equilibrio elegante. C una forte componente di alcool sotto il mlange di sapori. Si tratta di una birra piuttosto complessa, ricca di sapori e cremosa; che incarna lo stile delle Stout americane.

Enteogenisk (162) - Blsta, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Bottle in wine glass. A perfectly balanced stout with mild yet firm and persistent roasted coffee notes and a finish that really show the perfect choice and add of hops.

GTAEgeek (2014) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pitch black, with a medium, beige head. Cocoa, anise, molasses, and burnt toast. Sweet and malty up front, with a smooth, significantly bitterness that follows. Medium body, syrupy, a bit acerbic, and clingy through the finish. This is a solid, very roasty stout. A little harsh and sticky, but flavorful and thick.
