American Stout |  6.80% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complimented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and American Hops. The complex malt bill of pale and roasted malts result in this well balanced stout that is smooth, rich, dark and delicious! And watch out – ABV 6.8%!

New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA) - Irish Channel Stout, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Pours a thin viscosity motor oil brown black with a small head that doesn't retain much at all. Tiny amounts of lacing.

Smell - Backer's chocolate is the most prominent, some "green bean" roasted malts (I dunno, that's what I smell every time in this malt variety) and a dash of espresso and hops.

Taste - Creamy and zippy carbonated chocolate with a nice roast followed by espresso notes and finishing a dash of hops.

Mouthfeel - Light-heavy body with high carbonation. Real nice feel here it's got great balance. Mouthfeel and drinkability is phenomenal, a real quaffable beer.

Overall - What a surprise, such a flavorful non-imperial stout! Typically I've been more into imperials but this one rekindled the glame for the good old American Stout!
