"With a heavy hand of dark roasted barley varieties, Breakout Stout has just the right complexity of dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavors." Brewed in the style of an American Stout. Previously a year-round beer, this has recently reverted to a winter seasonal release. Available in 12 oz. 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Jailhouse pint glass. Served above 62ยบ Fahenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a chocolate brown head of a crisp frothy consistency over a near black body. Retention is good, lacing is light and spotty. 4.25

(Smell) Roasted malts, cocoa nibs and biscuity caramel malt with a fruity, earthy and peppery hop background. Secondary notes of roasted coffee bean and vanilla come as the beer warms. Bitterness is moderate, sweetness is fairly low. 4

(Taste) Heavy roasted malt with a chocolate malt note, spicy, earthy hop bitterness. Fairly low sweetness reveals much more malt complexity, plenty of subtleties. Finishes slightly dry and roast with a lingering hop bitterness. 4

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, oily, mildly dry. Carbonation generates a soft airy crispness for a frothy mouthfeel. Body is medium/heavy for the style, shy of heavy overall. Balance is slightly bitter and roasted over sweet. Alcohol presence is low, off characters are minimal. Carbonation is a bit lively for this one. 3.5

(Overall) A solid and flavorful stout by an under-the-radar local brewery. It's going to be a bummer waiting until the colder seasons for this beer but I am glad that it's sticking around. 4

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 21, 2014.

It pours jet black, onyx, India ink, starless night (and any other synonyms I can come up for black). Modest beige head fades down eventually.

The aroma is full of coffee grinds, dark fruit malts, and earth. Fairly enticing.

The body is thin to medium, which is probably its weakest feature. Still it does have a creamy sensation.

The taste has a full malty character with all those coffee notes and a mild bitterness that teases the palate but does not really linger.
