Bottled 10/30/12.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, and slight char. Taste is much the same with cookie dough and slight metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is a bit watery flavor-wise but not too shabby.

Bass Stout has a thick, creamy beige head, a very dark brown appearance with some ruby highlights around the edges, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, brown bread crust, cream, sugar, and malt. Taste is smokey, charcoal, brown bread, bread crust, and some bitterness, but not really hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bass Stout finishes dry, chalky, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a very nice effort, and I suggest checking it out.

A - Poured an opaque, jet black color with a small, khaki colored head of foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of chocolate and toffee. Some caramel and floral notes.

T - Sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee flavors. Just slightly bitter.

M - Crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied stout.

O - This is okay. It worked well as a black & tan mix.

Was served this from a nitro tap at MacGregor's in a pint glass.

Black body with nitro head. artificially induced rings of lacing coat the glass.

no aroma worth mentioning.

mouthfeel; insipid, weak, watery.

taste: not much to talk about, very faint roastiness with faint bitterness.

nitro tap beers are horrible. this feels bad in the mouth and has little flavor to speak of. This is bad beer.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Figured I'd try out the stout by itself before I attempted a "proper" black and tan. This stuff pours a bleak black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises mild roasted malts and a bit of light coffee. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a dab of that Guinness-like sourness in the background. Unfortunately, here it comes across kinda like burnt sourdough. The body is a very light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent stout, but one that seems to necessitate the black and tan in order to really be enjoyed, as it's verging on blandness.
