Notes/Commercial Description:
Named after the midnight black, ‘Bullet Nosed Betty’ steam engine 6060, brought back to life by Jasper’s Harry Home. The 6060 is a traditional, dry, Irish-style stout with a wonderfully complex roast character. This is a beer to make the Irish giant proud.

The 6060 Stout is on nitro so it looks and tastes a lot like other nitro stouts. It is a very deep brown almost black in color with the head and lacing that is expected from this type of beer. It has a soft aroma of hops and peat, but it is underwhelming.

The taste is heavy on the malt as to be expected. There is a slight smoky flavor at the end. It is creamy in the mouth although a bit thin. It is very drinkable, leading to a couple more.

My favorite type of beer is not a nitro stout so this one was unexpectedly good, but I still prefer stouts with more body and a little less creaminess.

Kinda cool looking out the window of the brewpub, and seeing a museum-quality vintage train engine on display, similar to the eponymous car of this beer...

The 6060, beer incarnation, first makes itself known at the table via its cascading effervescence, which puts on a show for a few minutes at the very least. Once that is over, it appears black, with red highlights, and one finger of creamy light tan head, which leaves a simple ring of lace around the glass. It smells of sweet chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and lightly roasted malt. The taste is roasted malt, mild bittersweet chocolate, some dry coffee, a bit of saltiness, and earthy hops. The carbonation is sedate, the body smooth, creamy and full, and it has an off-dry, roasted mocha finish.

A lovely dry stout, a bit sweeter than to spec, but that's all right with me.

I visit the Jasper Brewpub every time I go to Jasper so I figured about time to review one of their brews. This is from detailed notes from about three weeks ago (had to wait for 20 reviews to add it).

Appearance – Pours a dark brown/black to begin but once settled its pitch black and completely opaque with a medium amount of creamy tan head. Very nice too look at.

Smell – Roasted malts present with a sweetness that somewhat reminds me of Baileys Irish Crème. I know that sounds weird. The smell is very faint though which I wasn’t a huge fan of.

Taste – Up front this one is dominated by roasted malts and smoke. It’s followed by small hints of chocolate but remains quite one dimensional. Still pleasant in its own way.

Mouthfeel – The beer feels of thin cream. Just a touch thin for a Stout but not bad. Carbonation is low…just as I like it.

Drinkability – Very good. 6060 has a decent taste to it and feels nice going down. This one was finished fast...as it could be by any Stout drinker.

I enjoyed this glass of Stout, but it has room to grow. Not a bad effort from the Jasper Brewpub.

served on a nitro tap.... the style is more suited for such a serving

A: Like the Liftline, the nitro take a little while to calm. Almost black, with some reddish highlights around the sides and bottom of the glass. A creamy, nitro head - khaki.

S: Roasted malts are predominant. Quite a grainy scent, almost burnt. Not too bad... almost wheaty?

T: Scent almost the same as the aroma. Deep roasted, very grainy. Some spent coffee flavours.

M + D: Suitably creamy... seems like it would be rather thin without, but that's not the case on this serving, so no points lost there. Carbonation is light. Drinkability is alright, though perhaps not particularly intriguing. Flavour profile is okay, and finishes with a bit of a lingering taste. Worth a try, and the taste sticking around is nice - it could go with a bit more body and sweeter profile, imo.

Shocking to find this delicious stout isn't widely known outside of the Jasper area. This is one of the best I've had on tap. Amazing appearance, some of the best head I've seen. Smells strongly of licorice, some coffee notes. The taste is full full full and strongly malty, but with enough dryness to carry through. No strange flavours or off flavours like some brewpubs seem to have. Paired excellently with their German plate. The mouthfeel really makes itself known. This is thick like oil and full of variegated flavours. If in Jasper an absolute must, for me personally.

6060 Stout poured a black color with a nice creamy tan head. There was a nice coffee and smoky aroma, however not too strong. The taste was much the same; smokey and malty, with hints of coffee. Good full flavor, and easy to drink. Overall a very good Irish Stout.
