Avery Out of Bounds Stout

Avery Brewing Co.
Boulder, Colorado

Grade: B
ABV: 6.3%
Style: Irish Dry Stout
Serve in: English pint

Pouring a deep black with ruby tinting around the edges, Out of Bounds also has a creamy, tan head which gives way to an attractive, spotted lacing.
The aroma is a bit faint, but with distinct traits. Predominately, bitter chocolate, dark fruits and roasted grains. These carry over into the taste, which is originally tart but then switches over to roasted malts, black coffee, charcoal and mild, woody hops.
Though a tad watery, Out of Bounds still possesses a smooth and creamy body that leads way into a dry, slightly chalky finish. It has a light enough carbonation for the style, but still enough to make it noticeable. And at 6.3% alc/vol, it’s a bit higher in alcohol than most dry stouts, but that, combined with the roasted barley, leave your mouth tingling.
Overall, I think this is a beer definitely worth trying. It’s Avery though, they can’t really do much wrong. Such a solid brewery. The fact that it’s not too heavy makes it very drinkable and makes me wish I picked up more than one for my evening.
