12oz bottle dated 10/17/2014, poured into a snifter 2/5/2015.

A- Medium-dark brown body, nearly black. One finger offwhite head. Good retention time. Fair lacing.

S- Sweet caramel, roast, toffee. Earthy, floral hop aromas. Fair bit of coffee. Nothing too special, but comes with a reasonable amount of roasted barley.

F- Grainy roasted barley, a bit of caramel sweetness, some espresso, plenty of earthy hop flavours and a very floral bitterness. Nice complexity, plenty of roasted malt with a nice floral hop component.

M- Medium bodied, not too thick nor thin, nice depth of flavour. A bit undercarbonated for the s tyle, but sufficiently carbonated for enjoyment. Bitter floral notes on the backend.

O- Decent stout, the hops used in this is a bit different than typical American stouts, but the roastiness and hops come together for a very tasty if bitter combination.

Avery Brewing Company Out of Bounds Stout

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that collected in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Wow! Big aromas of roasted malt, imparting notes of coffee and smoke, accented with some light licorice aromas too.

Taste: Wow!! Great, bold flavors of roasted malt, imparting flavors of toasted pumpernickel bread, freshly brewed coffee, without the coffee-like bitterness, a little smoke, a little dark chocolate, all followed by some brown sugar-like sweetness and some beautifully balanced hops. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy, nicely complemented with some pretty good carbonation. With an ABV of 6.3%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Damn, this is another great stout! Seriously bold flavors of roasted malt, beautifully balanced with some sweetness and hops! Absolutely delicious!
