Share This Review

Granite Stout is an American Stout brewed by 603 Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a can.

Appearance

Pours an oily black with a finger-thick head of tan foam that reduces rapidly.

Aroma

A pleasant aroma offers a scent of mild roast and sugary vanilla.

Flavor

Dark malt offers a touch of roast flavor before swiftly shifting to vanilla, lactose, and a dark chocolate that sticks to the back of the tongue. English Fuggle hops offer a slight balance of bitterness. High ABV is masked well.

Mouthfeel

The mouthfeel is smooth with a medium-heavy body and low carbonation.

Overall

If you’re in the mood for a dark beer on the sweet the side, the Granite Stout could be your brew. Although its flavor and feel are more akin to a Milk Stout instead of an American Stout. The palate does become more balanced as the beer warms, but it’s still too sugary for the style.

About the American Stout

The American Stout is a more aggressive rendition of the English and Irish Stouts. It has the dark body and flavor of those styles but with a greater hops presence. Has more roast and body than an either an American Porter or American Black Ale. But doesn’t have as much roast, character or strength of an Imperial Stout.
