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.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, a bit of coffee and raspberry. Taste is coffee, smoke, mild raspberry, not much chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall smokier than I thought, and less sweet, a quality beer.

12oz. bottle poured into a porter glass.

A- dark ruby/black. light gets through a bit when held to a light. Light khaki head that dissipated quickly.

S- Heavy on the raspberry with a bitter chocolate there as well. Raspberry overpowers.

T- A bit of raspberry, a hint of bitter chocolate, and not much else. Bitter, ugly finish.

M- thin, thin, thin, thin, thin. It's a stout people, it needs some body.

O- DuClaw continues to disappoint me.

A: Dark ruby-ish brown pour produces little more then a skim dark walnut toned head. No legs, standard issue. meh.

S: Dried black raspberries, small coffee, fruity, but low on appeal and temptation as well complexity.

T: Flavor of raspberry coffee, with dry bakers chocolate. Lightly bitter, dried blackberry fruitiness, dry creamer, bitter milky finish.

M: Mouthful was dry, slight tingle of carbonation, chalky, lighter end of medium substance wise but appears very thin on the leave.

O: Overall meh best describes this. Sounds like a good dessert beer, but is actually thin, with a boring fruit aspect, and the stout malting seems to be lean, dry flaky bakers chocolate instead of rich, lustrious with a bright fresh fruitiness as i imagined. Thin pass off the tongue, lacks substance, flavor. A big rich black cherry stout would of been ideal. Unimpressed.
