What you got a problem with that name? Well it’s better than Buttcrust 2012 which was the only other option. Yes deer viewers and people too we have traveled once again to the secret location that you can find right here. And while there was no snow there was certainly some skateboarding, fishing, and going down to the ol’ water hole – except stupid bets and rusty bolts made it so none of that happened – so we just ended up reviewing (read drinking) a lot of beer.
This week we’ll tackle the stouts – now to be fair we’re big fans of stouts (and scotch ales) here at Nerdfit – why we don’t even consider it a beer unless it’s blacker than [statement redacted]. There’s just something about the heavier beers that makes it better – like actually having a taste, or complexity with bitterness, or not being made of piss.
Now while we enjoy our Guinness, and un-reviewed Guinness Black we were blown away by how much we enjoyed the Allagash Black stout last Beercation – which btw now come in 4-packs. 4-Packs! That’s awesome for so many reasons. However we wanted to see if we could get something that could compare to the awesomeness that is Allagash, but I mean could anything compete with an 8.8 score that we gave out? (note that’s a JW Blue Label tier score)
Sadly no. We’ve got our scores below – again we use beer shorthand for just an overall score – there will be a review soon that has a full breakdown, and comes in a box.
Out of Bounds Stout – First up was Out of Bounds stout, and while it’s certainly not an awful stout – it’s really not worth your time to go out and try it.
Lee – 4.5
John – 4
It’s got the stout taste, but it’s not heavy. I mean if that’s what you’re looking for is to throw a beer back but have it taste like a stout it’s okay. Trouble is that’s for stupid people we want our stout to be a stout.
Dogfish Head Chicory Stout – Then we come to a fairly well known (at least in New England) beer-maker and their spin on a stout, and while Shipyard’s Blue Fin Stout from last year beats it – it’s not bad.
What they say: “About this stout. A rich, dark brew smoother over with a touch of roaster chicory and organic Mexican coffee goodness beneath a bone white head”
Lee – 7
John – 6.5
Really like this stout, it’s really got some nice flavor to it. Certainly on the level of standard Guinness. I would order this again at a bar.
Dragonslayer – FUS ROH BEER! Seriously though I was in a wine store having picked up some nice wines, and the beer that we’ll review in the coming weeks, but there was a lack of stouts. Except for this one, and considering my recently acquired sword I felt like enough of a nerdbag to pick this up.
Lee – 6.5
John – 6.5
Bfey – 4.5
Not as heavy as we thought it would be, but it’s very chocolate-y. Decently priced. Brian does not like the chocolate. To be fair with that kind of name we we’re expecting something strong and oak-y not the chocolate we received – not a bad thing, and if you like chocolate stouts than we very much recommend this.
Well that’s all 3 of the stouts – next week we’ll have the other beers we reviewed and we’ll cap Beercation: Part 2 (Parts 1-3) off with a full breakdown of beer that costs as much as an 18pack (and not of shit light beer).
