What You Need to Know

This winter seasonal from Red Hare features dark roast malt flavor balanced with a subtly sweet finish. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.

Appearance

The Stout pours a clear cola brown hue and is topped by nearly an inch-thick cap of rocky, mocha-colored foam that bubbles away rapidly. In fact, if you blink, it’s gone. The head’s reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.

Aroma

The aroma wafts the nose with a varied scent featuring a little coffee, a bit of nut, a touch of dark chocolate, and some browned oatmeal.

Flavor

The palate is led by a taste of browned bread and mild coffee bean. The tasting then crests to a mild floral hopping mixed with coffee roast. The tasting then mellows with a sweet note of prune and more bready malt with oats.

Mouthfeel

The body is relatively smooth with a medium-full body and moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly warming, somewhat dry, and a touch acidic. The sweetness lightly coats the back of the mouth.

Overall

The Sticky Stout presents poorly but that can be overlooked. The aroma is complex and pleasant. The palate is quite nice with its blend of roast, bready malt, and dark fruit flavors. The feel is right in line with expectations.

Overall, the Sticky Stout is an easy brew to tilt back, and other than its lackluster appearance, is a nice representation of the style.
