Very nice alternative to Guinness, definitely a fresher product. Very nice toffee notes, and creamy head. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
The appearance of this beer combines a dark brown color with a medium tan head that fades quickly, and the aroma combines chocolate malts with roasted ones. The taste fuses a mild umami and a touch of bitterness and sweetness, and the palate combines an average carbonation, slick texture, medium body, and a definite long roasted finish. ronaldtheriot (2020) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bass Stout has a thick, creamy beige head, a very dark brown appearance with some ruby highlights around the edges, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, brown bread crust, cream, sugar, and malt. Taste is smokey, charcoal, brown bread, bread crust, and some bitterness, but not really hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bass Stout finishes dry, chalky, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a very nice effort, and I suggest a try. RJT

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild mild roasted malt aftertaste. The tangy flavor contained notes of roasted malt burnt malt brown malt dark malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. scooterbub (1068) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black with a red hue and a three inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, some chocolate, and a touch of hops. Aroma is similar, but a bit lighter. Lots of Bass Ale notes in the aroma and tastes. The body is decent and a bit on the lighter side. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Reminds me of Guinness, but without the nitrogen.

2 June 2013, tap. Black with thin, creamy head. Nose is bitter dark chocolate, toast. Thin body and mildly fizzy, a bit creamy. Lots of bitter, dark chocolate. Not as balanced as Guinness. Still, it's decent.

On tap at MacGregors. Pretty one dimensional, but decent. Creamy (nitro pour), nice looking dark and reddish. Plenty of chocolate in this, like chocolate malt. Not much else. glennous (28) - - SEP 27, 2013
Good aroma. Good head. Bad aftertaste. Good alcohol taste. It was ok. I’d buy it again. Chudwick (3426) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - DEC 5, 2013
12oz bottle - pours black with beige head. Nose is roast and caramel. Sip adds coffee/dark chocolate. Light bitterness and light to medium light body. Easy to drink. a little watery but still a stout weighing in at 4.2% ABV which is still .1% stronger than a Guinness from Ireland. puboflyons (3530) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 17, 2013
From the 355 ml. bottle stamped 15155BF53. The pour is a dark chestnut brown color with ruby hues and a short-lived off-white head that fizzles down to a ring. The aroma includes dark and caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses and a touch of baked chocolate. The body is thin. The taste has a roasted dark malt character with decent sweetness and a clean, dry finish. If you like Guinness Stout you will like this.
