BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tuckerman Brewing Co.
New Hampshire, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Introduced in 2007, the 6288 Stout is our winter season specialty beer. It is a rather lengthy process to brew the 6288 Stout. It is brewed with 5 different malted barleys, using American and French hops. Keeping with the Tuckerman tradition, it is cold-conditioned, dry-hopped and bottle conditioned using the krausening process. The fermentation takes about two weeks, twice the time of our other beers and conditioning takes three months! It’s worth the wait, as the extra time gives this special brew time to mellow, offering a very smooth dark, malty flavor.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle - 2017 batch. Sampled on March 18, 2017.

The pour is dark brown with a modest tan head that leaves a touch of lacing as it fades. And it fades.

The aroma is roasted sweet malts, the tiniest hint of cherry, maybe a papery thing, and a low earthy hop profile.

The body is medium of better.

The taste is rich, malty, and sweet with a feint cantaloupe-like fruity finish. It does not linger long but I get it. They have not released this beer in many years and I am pleased to see that they brought it back.

Poured from a grolsch bottle 2 weeks after it was tapped. Kept in cold conditions, and allowed to breath approximately two minutes before being poured into a tulip glass. Just the right amount of carbonation: boasts a creamy mocha head that sinks rapidly, leaving a thin ring around the perimeter. Dark, black, coffee color. Roasty coffee and baked bread aroma. Upon tasting, you get dark chocolate with some esters of raspberry. Overall, a solid stout, even after being stored in a grolsch bottle for two weeks.

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle with the poorly designed label. I am listening to The Get Up Kids' album "On a Wire."

A - Outstanding. It looks very much like how a stout should. Thick two inch head with nice retention, some lacing as it goes down, could be a little "frothier," if I had to say why I didn't give it a 5.

S - A little metallic. Some roasted peanuts. Meh.

T - Starts off with some scalded milk, understated malt presence. A nice carbonated bite at the end with a bit of hops, appropriate for the style. Very drinkable. Amazing aftertaste of salted peanuts.

M - Creamy with some nice carbonation.

Overall I think it's very, very, very... solid. It isn't a stout that would be style-changing, but they made something very drinkable with great flavor.

Served in a Guinness glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that is still there. It is a black color with no charity or vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super tight mocha lacing all the way down. Awesome.

Smell: Roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, earthy, and a little smoke.

Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, smoke, earthy hop bitterness, and a little dark fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, tingly hops, a little dry, a little creamy, medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, and quite enjoyable.

Overall: For an American stout, this was very delicious and enjoyable. I'll make sure to grab another pint before it's gone.

Pours a solid dark brown color with a decent sized tan head that shows some persistence. Smells roasty and fruity with bits of earth and caramel strewn about. Taste follows the smell fairly well, but there is more caramel than coffee and roast. Dark dried fruits and caramels are quite prevalent almost dopplebock like qualities. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet burnt sugary mouthfeel. This is not a bad beer, but it really needs some more roast and some chocolate flavor would help as well.
