Reminiscent of the great Irish stouts, BridgePort Black Strap Stout combines a generous dose of Northwest hops with the sweetness of black strap molasses to yield a rich and creamy brew.

    Pours a dark,brown almost black with a tan head. Aroma is a nice combination of chocolate, molases and hops. Taste is malty with a good mouthfeel. There are some notes of bitterness throughout as well giving good balance. Very good beer.

    A nice offering from Bridgeport, Aroma and flavors of dark bitter chocolate, sweet, burnt molasses, coffee, with some hop notes as well. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a dry finish. A nice stout, thats worth a try.

    Aroma is rich and smoky, and just a little sweet. It comes out of the bottle a dark, nearly opaque chocolaty brown and finishes the pour with a thick, fine-bubbled, light tan head. Flavor is rich if not too complex, rather hoppy, sweet but not cloying, with an undertone of molasses and hints of chocolate and caramel. Texture is very smooth and quite fizzy.

    Pours an opaque black colour with well integrated hops, lots of syrupy aroma, big full body, thick head, and a nice caramel finish, sort of malty mid palate, really smooth stout, a not too rich

    Dark, dark as night, decent head and lacing. Aroma was roast. Very dry flavor, with some roastiness and burnt malt flavor. A little thin in the mouthfeel, but not bad.

    From notes. Pours a very dark brown, nearly black, with a thin head that fades quickly to a thin soapy cap. The lacing is a bit spotty, but more than I was expecting with so little foam left. Smell; it's a little sweet at first with some molasses and chocolate, but then it fades into a bit of a coffee aroma. As a matter of fact, the more this warms, the more roasted the aroma becomes. Taste; the molasses is even more evident in the flavor than it was in the aroma. It even seems to override any chocolate flavors that may be in there. The roasted coffee and malts are not quite as pronounced as I would have liked either, but they are present. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth with the low carbonation, and the drinkability is really good. I didn't really expect to like this beer at all, but it's actually pretty decent, and would be a fairly regular with friends if it were available here.

    dinner in a bottle - does it get any better?? I love the look of a good stout and it has to be pretty horrible for me not to enjoy one. I liked this one although the malts might have been a bit strong for my taste.

    This beer is alittle strange...one bottle i had was fantastic, one was the exact opposite, and the rest were inbetween. Not a bad beer but only a tap will save heem.

    This beer pours dark black with a tan head that fades pretty quickly. The aroma is distinct; I picked up almost a cinnamon scent along with the usual roasty malts, and there is a distinct sweet scent. This bottle also has a chemical scent like modeling glue. Mouthfeel is very thin with medium carbonation, not a typical mouthfeel for a stout in my opinion. The flavor is definintely different, but I don't really care for it. The roasted malt taste is good, but overpowered by the chemical taste. Hopefully this is a defect in my particular bottle.

    Nice looking stout. Black pour, decent tan head. Sweet aroma, mostly of strong dark malts & molasses. The taste is very malty...semi-sweet. Chocolatey flavors dominate...not picking up on the molasses as much though. A pleasant roasty treat on one of the first cool evenings after a long scorhing summer.
