Bear Republic Big Bear Stout

This… this is a fine stout: Bear Republic Big Bear Stout.  On a night where we tasted 5 or 6 new porters and stouts, this one stood out.  Fed it to the neighbors, even, and they liked it just as much.  All of the goodness that a big stout should have… roasted malt, chocolate, caramel… it was all there, including an 8.1% ABV. 

Poured dark and heady (although the picture shows it after it died down), this one had a fine complexity that has to come from the ingredients and brewing process as described on the site.  Check it out for a detailed description.

Thanks to Bear Republic for a fine, fine brew.
