Fox Hat Brewing Co.
Fox Hat Phat Mongrel Stout
Brewery: Fox Hat
Format: 375ml Can
A big phat rounded american style stout finished with a nitro charge.
To the eye, a deep black abyss, hissing up coffee coloured nitro bubbles, topped with a rich, creamy head.
Up your nose, the initial pungent and complex hop aroma gets piny and resinous before fading to the rich, roasted chocolatey malt body.
In your mouth, the assertive hop flavours and 70 IBUs of bitterness on the front mellow to a sweet, phat, chocolate and toasted malt combination, while the 6.5% ABV warms you all the way down.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Great for a Porter
I am more of stout fan than a porter fan but this beer was excellent.
Bitter, bitter darkness
Full on bitterness. Dark and bitter. Bitter and dark. No massive notes of chocolate or coffee, just lovely dark bitterness.
