The best all around colorado style stout you can find.This is the beer that got me hooked me on Avery beers and is I believe a perfect example of what the company inspires. Experimenting with making beer using unconventional ingredients and coming up with a one of a kind original tasting product. Prost!

Poured tar black in color with a light brown head of creamy foam. The aroma has a wonderfully roasted nuttiness with slightly burnt dark grains and toasted breads. There’s also some cocoa/chocolate notes. Beautiful bouquet. The taste is sublime with mellow coffee notes and a perfect roasted bitterness. A chocolate sweetness entices the palate and the beer goes down with a silky smoothness. The body is solid and this finishes clean and leaves me satisfied. Actually, this leaves me wanting more – like a case or two. An excellent stout that I would highly recommend.

Pours a typical stout black with tan head one finger deep.

Smell sweet carmel and roasted malts.

Taste is all roasted and toasted malts and barley with just the slightest hop bite towards the end. Depth and complexity make this one heck of a stout.

Silky smooth feel with light carbonation. Very robust.

Overall, I would easily recommend this stout to all interested in trying a full flavored brew. Avery hit a home run with Out of Bounds!!!

This beer was exactly what I was hoping it would be. The best of great stout aroma and flavor (which i think comes from the stronger stouts) without the high alcohol. A perfect cold weather afternoon or session beer. Great dark color, very roasty aroma and flavor. As good as any imperial I've ever had.

Pours black with a nice tan head. Opaque except for some mahogany hues at the bottom of the pint. Tan head eventually flattens to cover the surface of the body. Excellent aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and chewy. Initial flavors of roasted coffee, mocha and caramel treat the tongue. Hop bitterness kicks emerges in the middle and carries into the long coarse finish. Dry and coating roasted malt finish. A great offering from Avery and a must-try for stout fans.

1/2 cm tan head off a pretty vigorous pour. Head diminished but laced slightly. Pitch black with only a slight red highlight. Smells super nutty sweet mocha chocolate (like one of those peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kiss on top). Tastes just as good (again one of those cookies comes to mind, but this time washed down with some roasty coffee). Sweetness hangs on almost to the end but at the last minute it quickly turns to the proper dryness for the style. A nice chewy mouthfeel without being overly heavy. I was getting pretty tired of stouts in general because some offering seem a bit watery while others can be chokingly heavy. This perfect body and balance between sweet and dry of this offering has changed my mind.

A - Pours a very dark color with a thick, caramel colored head almost 3 fingers in width and leaves an unquestionable lace on the glass.

S - Gives off the aroma of bitter chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts.

T - Enters with a touch of chocolaty coffee and leaves with a bitter, roasted taste.

M - Thick and creamy with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall this is a great stout and I have plans on drinking more of these in the future.

As one of the earlier reviewers said, I too believe this is an underappreciated beer, as far as stouts go.

Appearance: jet black, creamy tan head.

Smell: roasted malts and chocolate milk.

Taste: I really enjoy a stout that is restrained on the sweet side and instead emphasizes the roast, which this does. All roasted barley and black patent flavors.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, almost feels like a milk stout.

Drinkability: I would be all too happy to down these all night.

Overall: This, along with North Coast's Old #38 Stout, are two of my favorite dry stouts. They are exactly what they SHOULD be.

This one couldn't wait to get out of the bottle and celebrate. So after pouring 85% foam between an Ayinger mug and a Sunset tall glass and refilling with the excess from the bottle it finally came to a mushroom cloud atop the Sunset glass and sl-l-l-l-l-lowly settled. There's still a smoke puff of scud cloud at top and that's fine with me daddy-o. Everything has its purpose and as such this cloud performs its duty. Similar to winter cloud cover does in keeping heat from escaping and the tempertaure from plummeting this buffer zone keeps me from gulping this fucker right down. Exultant dark mark, mucilaginous hops and an indeterminable scintilla of fruit that gives a puissant taste which perorates in idiolallic tongues. Yes, it is OK to look over the precipe, laugh and then consider jumping.
