A Fortnight of Stouts


Team Chug is continuing it’s 6-second beer review onslaught with 2 full weeks of stouts. We find that sometimes it’s important to take on a supposed enemy of the chugging community and become besties with it. That’s why we’re welcoming a slew of big, dark beasts into the world of chug reviews.

Of course, chugging stouts isn’t exactly a new thing for us. Here’s a quick look back at a select few that we’ve done over the last several months. Scroll down and enjoy them, won’t you? Then check back every day for the next two weeks to see us continue pounding pints of that dirty motor oil.

Left Hand Milk Stout Beer Review

Milk Stout
Left Hand Brewing Company
Longmont, CO
6% ABV

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 6
It’s definitely dark, but after you pour it hard and let it settle it rolls right down your throat.
How Much: 7
I paid $9.49 for a six-pack and I would probably do it again.
Uhhh…Taste: 7
Not real heavy and not too sweet, but still has a bold flavor and very smooth.

Fort Collins Chocolate Stout Beer Review

Chocolate Stout
Fort Collins Brewery
Fort Collins, CO
5.3% ABV

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 5
Not too bad for a stout, but the chocolate weighs it down a bit.
How Much: 5
I paid $8.99 for a six-pack. Not a bad price, but didn’t quite live up to it’s billing.
Uhhh…Taste: 4
I may have been a little harsh on this one, but it was little too much chocolate and not enough beer for my taste.
Gettability: 5
Year round offering available in 19 states.


Avery Brewing Out of Bounds Stout Beer Review

Out of Bounds Stout
Avery Brewing
Boulder, CO
ABV: 6.3 %

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: : 6
Surprisingly chuggable. It’s deep and dark and looks intimidating, but it’s smooth and doesn’t have a terribly heavy body to it, so it goes down just fine.

How Much: 5
I paid $8.99 for a six-pack, which is par for the course. Once again, it’s probably not a beer I’ll seek out and purchase with so many other options at that price range.

Uhhh…Taste: 6
Totally decent, though maybe unspectacular. It’s roasty and malty and stouty and I’d consider it good starting point to get into the stout game.

Gettability: 8
Out of Bounds Stout is a year-round offering from Avery, who distributes fully or in small regions of 40 states.
