Lakefront Brewery Inc My Turn Series: AL American Stout
What the brewers say
"Brewed in memoriam of our beloved friend and co-worker, Al. Stronger and fuller-bodied than its British counterparts, this pitch black American Stout sports a hefty roasted malt and caramel flavor."
What our panel thought
“Solid head that retains well. Light on the roast character on the nose. Medium coffee and chocolate malt flavor. Pleasant toast, nutty malt character in the middle with a softly fruity (pear, cherry) underlying sweetness. A brown beer flirting with some stout tendencies?”
What our editors thought
“Inky dark note on the nose; the sip pulls it back with more bready malt and soft caramel. The body isn’t excessive—trim and lean, with a crisp hop character.”
