COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Martin House There Will Be Stout
That’s right, The Original Pretzel Stout. This 6.5% abv stout is as black as West Texas Intermediate and is brewed with over six pounds of crushed sourdough pretzels per barrel. Guess what? There’s no style guideline for this one. The salty fingerprint of the pretzels works with the sweet and roasty flavors of the chocolate malted & roasted barley to give this beer a flavor that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

The one and the only, as far as I'm concerned. Others have tried a pretzel stout, but it's not even close. You have to have this one if you want to have the conversation. Go big or go home.

On tap at Brewers Ball Dallas. Pours a dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, bread. Medium body, strong roasted malt, nice sweetness, light finish, very nice.

Can. Pours dark black, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is roasty, bready, hints of ashtray and cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, roasty, bready, pinch of salt, chocolate. Medium body, lingering bitterness. This beer is really good! Gimmick or not, the salty breadiness is a really good compliment.

jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2016
Can. Well, they nailed it with this name. Pours dark with not much head. Aroma is chocolate, follows up with that in the flavor with a bit of the salt on the end. Somewhat thin bodied and ashy. Interesting tick.

Bottle from blutt59 and odd concept for beer although I supposed served side by side often enough bound to happen. Dark roasted brown with fine head. Nose is chocolate and pretzel amazingly. I did get the pretzel right off bat and had to check deScription to make sure actualy made with them, also chocolate, roasted malt, licorice. Salty finish. Semi sweet. Kinda odd I prefer the chocolate bar combo of salt and chocolate over the beer version.

Can. Deep brown with a dense, sticky pretzel-colored head. Aroma is like the outside of a pretzel -- that dark, somewhat burnt, charred, crusty flavor. A lot of acrid roast in here. Great body -- smooth, creamy, hefty, thick and tongue-coating. Intensely ashy up front with chocolate in the back. Really nice, full flavor -- but there’s no pretzel.

PorterPounder (8356) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Lewisville, Tx - Total Wine & More - 16 oz can. Deep dark black motor oil like pour with a thin but persistent mocha colored head; thin rings of lacing. Chocolate-like aroma, some earthy topsoil accents a touch of creosote. Flavor is solid with bittersweet chocolate accents, some espresso notes, a brief touch of the advertised salty doughiness found in pretzels. Mouthfeel has a solid thickness to it. Pretty solid.

Chocolat noir, noix de coco et menthe fraiche dans un corps superbement velouté.
