Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
The tan lace clings to the glass as you raise the pint to your lips. Close your eyes and smile as the rich espresso notes fade to a dry, roasted finish. Exceptionally smooth and satisfying. Made with English Pale malt, roasted barley, black patent malt, and flaked barley. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and Target hops, and fermented with our English ale yeast.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

bottle into tulip

appearance: black with off white 1 finger head

smell: roasted malts, espresso/coffee, dark chocolate, hazelnut

taste: prominent malt backbone with bready notes, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, a bit watery and not much hop presence at all

mouthfeel: decent amount of carbonation, pretty thin feel

overall: A very session-able stout, on the watery side for the style but at 3% you could drink these all day and not feel them. Decent flavor's but nothing too strong or aromatic, on the tame side for a stout, even a lower abv.

Stout poured a nice opaque black with a nice white head that dissipated quickly without much lacing. Malty aroma with overtones of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste like it smelled with a pleasant malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Dry roasted finish, true to style. Not many hops to speak. A few hops at the end would have made it a bit more enjoyable but this is a fine, drinkable stout.

pours opaque black. big burly dark tan head retains very well.

big flavor. smokey, chocolate,.. i even get a little vanilla. finish is slightly charred roasted malts coming through with the bitterness of hops giving it a late, great bite. lacking the nice earthy tones I like in a stout though...

chewy. good mouthfeel overall..

overall: This beer has good flavor for a lower abv stout. The kinda thing that should be able to put guinness in it's place, but never will. Definitely lacks any chalkiness or earthy tones from the hops, but is pretty darn drinkable. Not sure if the flavors would come on too strong to session.. the malts are a bit charred-like and possibly keeps some of the other subtle notes shining through.
