Notes/Commercial Description:
IV Stout is a very dark, top fermented beer made from pale malt, roasted unmalted barley and a caramel malt.

The style was first introduced by Guinness as an extra stout version of their porter. The new stout was darker, hoppier and richer than porter, which it gradually overtook in popularity.

A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Pours a two finger brown head over a pitch liquid with no edgings when held to light. Smells potently roast, cocoa powder, grassy hops, and oatmeal creamy.

Tastes strong roast, metallic chocolate, hop grassiness that's complementary to the roast, blackberry, and lightly of oranges. Very dry from roast and high attenuation. Hits the style pretty well. Light in the mouth dry drying grassy finish. Modest carbonation and minimal lacing on the inside of the glass. No a complex beer due to the strong roast. A bit disjointed, though the flavors would like meld with a couple months of age.
