Description:"Not for the faint-hearted. Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise." — Lost Coast Brewery
The tasting: VERY dark brown—near black in color with a tan head that dissipated slowly. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. It has a very light earthy hop presence. Taste is very similar to the aroma with the addition of citrus hops. Its nicely balanced. Light to medium bodied (I expected it to be thicker) with a finish of chocolate malt. It has medium carbonation, a smooth mouth feel, and is very drinkable.
Rating: 4 star. Really Good! I want this again! What a great beer for my first stout review. This is also the first Lost Coast beer I tasted. I'll be looking for more of their brews, as well as more stouts in general.
Have you tried 8-Ball Stout or any other Lost Coast beers?
