Looks the part with a very dark brown hue with ruby highlighting. A creamy one inch light tan head, but it didn't seem to want to stick around long. Molasses and bitter chocolate in the nose. Bitter chocolate is the most potent flavor. It then fades into a roasted coffee. The flavor is quite nice, but it's just too thin for me. I'd drink it again.

A: Incredibly dark, basically black, with absolutely no head at all and no lacing.

S: Smells like a stout should: malty, roasty with hints of chocolate and caramel.

T: Nice and roasty up front, but not a whole lot to balance on the finish. There is also a strange, almost metallic aftertaste.

M: Surprisingly medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

D: Drinkable, but not good. Like every other beer that came in the Dundee pack I bought, this one is drinkable but thoroughly unexceptional.

pours a deep deep red midnight even when held up to the midsummer sun....dark tan head laces ok and settles much faster than Guinness....i almost wonder why this is in a summer time variety pack...but i do love stouts.

slight toasty-malt nose. nothing that hammers the olfactory, but nice and fresh. maybe a little bit of cold metallicness. not in a bad way, but not as 'organic' as i'd like.

rather refreshing and delightful in a weird way. definitely a 'summer' stout if there ever was one...fairly dry finish. not much lingering. perhaps this is best either ice cold or warmed up a bit...definitely a beginner's stout but not a disposable brew at all...one gets the roastedness and a nice dried, dark fruit sweetness that isn't cloying. not bad at all. heck, 'good' ! mouthfeel helps this along with its good level of carbonation, summer 'thin-ness' and slight creaminess.

quite drinkable. easy session brew for those wanting to...it's not pedestrian nor is it quite worthy of serving to the goddess of beer....but her attendants probably love it all the same.

if anything, this probably goes so well with food...whereas world class stouts, art-for-palate-sake, are best solo. so, sure, i'd say give this a try. i think it will hit folks differently.

Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head that quickly goes away, leaving some side lacing.
Smell is of coffee and mollasses, burn notes no hops noticable on the nose.
Not at all thick like most stouts with a creamy light mouth feel, which for some will be a negative. A little to thin for it to be rated a real good stout but I liked it despite having lighter characterics than its stout style would suggest.

Bold two finger head of light brown bubbles. Not a lot of lace and no cling. Nice aromas of coffee, chocolate, toffee, nutmeg, muskmelon, and malt. Flavors, much like the smell, dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet barley malt. Creamy feeling in my mouth. Good desert beer, maybe with chocolate cake or chocolate cheesecake. Good to drink alone. Will drink more, if I can find in a six pack.

3.7/5  rDev +6.3%

Appearance: Clear, dark red color with just a thin cap of head that fades to a ring

Aroma: Lots of sweet, roasted malt, with notes of coffee, chocolate and molasses

Taste: Sticky sweet right off the bat, but then a nice wash of carbonation lightens things up leading to a nice, roasted finish with a touch of bitterness on the way out.

The Rest: Body is medium, finish is lingering and a bit thin and drinkability is good. A pretty tasty beer that reminds me of a milk stout.

poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a used motor oil black with deep garnet highlights. Streams of tiny bubbles rush to the two-finger, creamy, tan head. Head stays intact all the way down the glass and leaves behind decent lacing.

S - Nice nose of dark molasses and toffee on a firm chocolate malt backbone upon opening the bottle. Subdued somewhat once in the glass.

T - Dark fruits and chocolate malt upfront. The body is a delicious blend of moderately dark chocolate, current, and slightly overripe date with just a slight tinge of hop bitterness. A splash of hops and plenty of dark fruit as the beer passes over the back of the tongue smoothly fades into a dark chocolate and date finish.

M - Medium-heavy bodied and delightfully creamy thanks to the moderately high levels of carbonation.

As advertised, this stout is a dark and highly drinkable brew, aided in the later by a relatively low hop content and heaviness compared to other examples of the style. Of course these traits also make it come off slightly watered down as well, but I'd rather not nitpick too much on what is a seasonable, tasty, yet cheap stout. Well done Dundee, yet another beer a would delightfully have again!

This came in a sampler pack with 3 other types of Dundee brews. Overall, I was very pleased with this stout. The color was very true to form: dark and lovely. The head was not very tall and disappeared after a couple of minutes. The nose was malty and somewhat sweet, but not overly expressive. The taste was very good, though, and this beer stands up well next to stouts that cost a lot more money. I tasted lots of sweet malt, with a little coffee and nicely balanced hops in the background. This is an easy-drinking stout that is worth checking out.
