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!!!

A "gift" from a family member who does not like stouts--had a sampler case and donated the stouts to me. Rarely will I turn down non-BMC-staple beer. This one was bought in NH, does not appear to be available in the Boston area, so that much more intriguing.

Pours dark brown--Kikkoman soy sauce comes to mind--with moderate latte head. Looks a bit thin when poured.

Obvious aroma of chocolate malt, a bit of pumpernickel and tobacco. Pretty straight forward stout smell without any complexity.

Tastes pretty much like it smells--pumpernickel rye and stale cocoa nibs. Faint hint of smoke/roasted malt. Moderate sweetness, no complex flavors aside from malt and alcohol.

Body is closer to a mild basic Baltic porter, somewhat excessive carbonation, low alcohol and a bit thin.

Overall, a notch above mediocre. This may be cheap for a stout, but not really worth the effort. Would easily trade the remaining three for a 12-oz bottle of a decent stout.

Aroma: Cocoa nibs, powdered chocolate, and hot chocolate mix. This is the most chocolate forward stout I can remember. Very inviting. Mild earthy hop notes. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Dark chocolate pour (are you picking up on the theme here??) with ruby edging. Low off white head with fair retention. Looks still in the glass.

Flavor: The big reveal: chocolate! Tastes like raw chocolate malt. Really cool. Has a distinct baker's chocolate nip to it with a bready background base to it. More earthy hops to balance out the apparent chocolate sweetness. Balance is nearly even leaning slightly to bitter due to the dark malts and hop presence. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high, biting carbonation.

Overall impression: A serviceable stout which under-promised and over-delivered. Worth a try.

Dundee continues to impress me with their modestly priced craft variety packs. These beers rival their more expensive counterparts, and in some cases, surpass them in quality, and this is one of those beers. This is easily one of my top 5 stouts, and I'm a huge stout fan. It's not as good as as Lion stout or New Holland's "The Poet" but for the money this stout can't be beat. It came in a variety pack with Dundee IPA (as always), Pale Bock Lager (as always), and a Kolsch style ale. All of these beers are good, but I'm not a big fan of the Kolsch, mainly because I just don't care for that style much at all, but the others are all good, but this stout definitely stands out from the rest of the pack's offerings.

Just a good overall stout. Silky and creamy, with hints of chocolate and coffee; everything a good stout should be. I so wish that Dundee would sell this stout alone in a 12 pack, but it's only available in the variety pack.

But this is a fantastic brew, certainly worthy of buying the entire pack for.
