Full bodied, complex, and top hat black, Trout Stout boasts a distinctly dry roasted flavor and exceptional malt character. Here, hops play a subtle supporting role. Commanding center stage is a hearty ensemble of five varieties of malt. Roasted unmalted barley joins these to achieve this rich ale’s signature coffee-roasted flavor. We recommend Trout Stout as an excellent accompaniment to fine foods, especially oysters and other treats from the sea. Some seasoned stout lovers say this ale makes a satisfying meal in itself. While we cordially invite you to judge for yourself, please remember: Trout Stout appears only during the cooler months, and elusively at that. So, keep your eyes peeled, your rod limber, and be sure to catch your limit before it gets away.

Bottle. (Remembered from past tastings) A friend of mine brought this to me from the brewery originally started by his brother. Yes I am biased here. I don’t remember much other than both my friend and his brother were first rate home brewers and I liked everything they brewed so gotta score this respectfully. I’m happy to see that so many years later this brewery lives on.

Draft at the brewpub. Black. Very light rim of burnt tan. Nice roasty coffeeish nose. Medium body, a little watery in spots. Nice coffee and roast come through in a big way on the mid-palate; there’s a pronounced bite to this one. Lightly coffee-sour and peppery hop finish.

On Tap (cask) at Fishbowl Brewpub Olympia WA, pours out a nice black topped with a tan head. Some nice mix of malt and sweet with a little smoke.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours a very liduidy luscious dark brownish black and a smooth dark brown head. The nose is all chocolate, with just a hint of smokiness and espresso. Roasty maltiness, with a lot of milk chocolate and cocoa, welll balanced acidity, with a nice bit of hoppiness in the finish.

Very dark colour with very dark head. Rich, chocolatey aroma. Thick body with chocolate, slight metal, slight roast. Smooth and rich.
