"Let's say you up and decide to throw a wooden barrel of ale in a public display of manliness. (I know, just go with it.) How then to celebrate? Hint: You're holding the answer. That's right, a Dundee Stout. 'Stout' is, after all, what brewers have been calling the darkest, heaviest and 'burliest' of all their ales since 18th century England. That said, ours is sweet, creamy and ironically, pretty light in texture. So maybe the tough part's not lifting it after all. The tough part's putting it down once you have. Go figure." Dundee Stout is brewed in the style of an American Stout. Available as part of the constantly rotating Dundee variety pack.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served north of 52º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a foamy light brown head that thickens as it recedes. Retention is average. Body color is a dark brown with dark ruby highlights. Head quality was decent and lacing was thin and spotty. A decent, if not fully substantial appearance for a stout. 3.25

(Smell) Contains chocolate malt, medium roasted caramel, dark wheat malt, and little black patent malt. Slightly sweet aroma, hints of cream and milk chocolate in places. Very subtle hints of dark fruit. Mild earthy bitterness. Aroma is overall closely balanced and relatively clean. Potency is medium. Not as deep and complex as most stouts are but still a very decent aroma overall. 3.75

(Taste) Light flavor. Biscuity chocolate malt front follows through to a clean, semi-dry chocolate finish with a touch of black malt bitterness and a puff of alcohol. A bit dry in places, could use a little more sweetness throughout to achieve an optimum balance. Bitterness, part black malt bitterness, part earthy hop, is a welcome addition to the balance. A very clean and light-flavored American Stout, high on drinkability but certainly limited in flavor diversity and depth. That label sure wasn't lying. 3.25

(Mouthfeel) Clean, slick texture with a little carbonation presence on the front of the tongue. Finish is dry and a bit chalky. Body is light for American Stouts, medium amongst all beers. Alcohol presence is light. Could be much more drinkable with some residual sweetness and a touch more body would have it drinking less like a Schwarzbier and more like the robust stout it should be. Malt notes, like oatmeal or wheat could certainly add more depth to the body and give this a much thicker, smoother and heavier-bodied mouthfeel. 3

(Overall) I found the label nearly honest by its description. Dundee's Stout is overall a decent-drinking beer. When it falls under the harsh scrutiny of a stout connoisseur, however, there is almost always room for improvement. The balance wasn't terribly off but a heightened sweetness would remedy even the most minute issues in that department. Some heightened body, perhaps with a touch of oats, would improve flavor diversity and thicken the body. One thing it does have going for it is drinkability. While far from the most robust of all stouts, one could be sure to enjoy a few of these without turning in early for the night. And that makes this a decent choice for a lightly-flavored stout. 3.5

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Ecru head forms, disappears in about 2 minutes leaving no trace behind really. Body is densely black, milky chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is thin, some chocolate but very neutral taste. Has hint of sourness and a metallic taste in the finish. Weak and not terribly enjoyable. Perfect for cooking!

Ok... soo.. Years ago, when adjuncts were King, I was young and mostly stupid (not so young now) I hated Bock Beer.. Bottom of the Barrel Swill!!!! But... This Dundee Stout.. from a Adjunct beer Company is quite good.. Nice malty, chocolate,molasses,foamy goodness.. (are there such a thing as beer s'mores?? ) that tastes of cocoa and chocolate and autumn. I love the fall variety packs the best.. Such a small investment for such a big return.. I mean.. the 12 pack Dundee fall variety pack I bought.. 11$ for 12 beers!!! Awesome.. And in the comfort of your own home.. no tickets, no flashing lights.. just a nice cold brew.. and an appreciation that you can have a good beer variety without pondering over the 1710 beers @ your local "in" spot..
Thank you, Dundee/Genesee.... Well done!!!
Carry on Citizens!!!
