Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Zaphog on 01-13-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Big Style is brewed with brown sugar and molasses. This stout is full of sweet aromas and hints of toffee and dark fruit flavors. These flavors give way to a roasty bitter aftertaste that’s relatively clean.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: mahogany. Almost black but brown around the edges. Opaque. Tannish head that leaves a small lacing behind

Smell: roasted malts and chocolate. Hints of molasses and other sugars

Taste: opens up with just a bit of a complex molasses and brown sugar sweetness. Quickly gives way to a big roasted coffee/ chocolate taste. I expected it to be a lot sweeter

Mouthfeel: fairly significant feel. Stickiness. No alcohol or warmth.

Overall: this beer left me wanting a bit more. I like the idea of molasses and brown sugar along with big dark malts but they were more of a hint rather than big bold flavors. Still fairly tasty
