Dundee - Stout
Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. twist-off bottle, poured into a mug
Another entry from the folks at Genesee in New York. Their take on a stout is a deep shadowy brown with a hearty tan head with a creamy top. The lacing is abundant and slightly-wispy. Dark chocolate dominates the nose with hints of sweet toffee.
The mouthfeel is creamy and thick, but it’s not too heavy to make this one a session beer. The chocolate flavor is distinct and prevailing, but doesn’t overtake the beer like Samuel Adams’ Chocolate Bock. Caramel sweetness blends nicely with a very mild smokiness and light hints of coffee. They call it “Dark and Drinkable” and they’re right. this could very well be a good introductory stout for those who aren’t crazy about smokiness.
Final Verdict: B-
