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!!!

350th review!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark dark reddish brown body. Head is rather anemic. Hardly any lacing.

S: Roasted malts and dark fruits.

T: Espresso notes, dark chocolate, some roasty bitterness. Finishes rather astringent.

M: Pretty light for a stout, slightly creamy.

D: I like my stouts a bit bigger, but this is a pretty decent low-octane stout.

Pours nearly opaque with light ruby brown hilights around the edges when held toward the light. Dark stuff for a regional brewer, light tan head forms nicely and dwindles into scattered sporadic lacing. Aroma is nice, semi sweet chocolate with dark roasted malts and a touch of caramel streaking through. Herbal hops peak through in the back ground of the dark roasts. Flavor has a creamy softness about with some herbal mint tones coming through almost some charred oak and faint vanilla but a light version of these flavors, dark creamy chocolate light roasted coffee tones. A pleasant blend dark roasted malts/herbal hops/and drinkable non abrasive features. Mouthfeel is smooth, still retains a nice sturdy carbonation that isn't overdone. Medium to light bodied for a stout, but fuller than most macro offerings to be found. Drinkable, likeable damn tasty stout, that I'm glad I stumbled across the new mixed variety pack at the local Kroger.

The beer pours a black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a dry, roasted malt scent along with a slightly sweet caramel aroma. The taste is decent. It has a basic pale and roasted malt flavor. It goes down smooth with a bone dry finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty good stout. It's nothing exceptional, but it's true to style and easy drinking.

Pours a pitch black color with a brown one-finger head into my glass. Looks about right for the style.

Aroma is full of a hint of roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate as well. Not too powerful aroma-wise.

Taste is full of cream with a slight hint of coffee/cocoa. Surprisingly silky and slightly thin in the middle.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering cream and cocoa, which stand out the most. Certainly delicious.

Not bad. It's drinkable but my only gripe is that it could have been slightly thicker.

Looks like a guiness, some head.

Spicy, not as in jalapeno, more like as in peppery.

Chocoloate. Definitely chocolate. Turns to a more mellowed out flavor towards the end. Lots'a roasted bitterness. Not crazy, but a mellowed out stout.

A lil' creamy. Not too thick for a stout. Really light actually. Not for those darker than your soul beer-lovers.

Good for a stout, but i could ask for more. A stout SHOULD NOT be drinkable. this is way too light. good for a first try in the genre, but id recommend a rasputin or goose island for the more adventurous

Pours a deep brown with about a finger width of foam when poured into a pint glass. Less foam than I was expecting. Smells of cocoa and a deeper, more bitter smell. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy, yet bitter. Taste is mostly cocoa to me, a little bit deeper/darker than some other chocolatey stouts. Goes down smooth, cocoa/bitter aftertaste. Overall, one of the betters stouts I've had.

Beige, rocky head. Recedes quickly to single layer of minute bubbles. Spotty lace.

Black patent malt aroma with a little bit of chalkiness.

A bit thin for the style (with a high level of carbonation). Pretty well balanced for a stout--lots of black patent with a touch of hop. Good aftertaste of dark chocolate and mild espresso.
