BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DuClaw Brewing Company
Maryland, United States
duclaw.com

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
First brewed in 2002, Naked Fish, like most traditional Stouts, is medium-bodied and nearly black in color with a light tan head. But where Naked Fish turns the stout style upside down is in its flavor profile. Gourmet Chocolate Raspberry Coffee is added to the grain bill to produce a taste experience you’ll never forget. Naked Fish hooks you with flavors and aromas of roast coffee, raspberry and dark chocolate, before releasing you to a dry, chocolatey finish. These enticing flavors, combined with a moderate 4.6% abv, are guaranteed to make you get naked. Fish. Or whatever.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Clear, and very dark brown, but not as near-black as many stouts (more like a porter). Head was khaki colored, but less than a finger thick; retention was good, but lacing minimal.

S: Toasted grain. Sweet fruit. Cocoa. And with a deep whiff, I smell that raspberry the label lists.

T: Malt is all toasty and no sweet. I get some faintly tart fruit flavor next, then black coffee. Bitter cocoa is there too. I wouldn't say the raspberry flavor is strong, but it's in there. In the finish there's a little acrid bitterness, but not in a negative way.

M: Pretty thin for a stout, but smooth and creamy. Carbonation is good. Booze is completely hidden.

O: Less "stout" than most stouts, but if you set those expectations aside, you won't be disappointed. It may not be outstanding, but it's a good beer in pretty much every aspect.
