Dorothy Goodbody Wholesome Stout

Dorothy Goodbody Wholesome Stout

Ratebeer 3.21 65th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +4

This is not a thick and heavy stout, but a light and drinkable one. A nose that is faint with bitter chocolate and roast is always inviting to a stout lover. This 'goodbody' is medium to full and slippery. The sweetness of the bitter chocolate played well with the roasted cocoa nibs. Overall it is easy drinking and not overwhelming.

Aftertaste +2

A good stout should stay a while on the palate. This one sure does that; it is long and bubbly with sweet, roasted chocolate.

Alcohol Content -1 4.8%

Sometimes low alcohol brews with big flavours are a perfect match. Sadly due to the rigid scoring system developed by the ARC quality assurance department, this beer gets a negative score.

Value +1

Yes, I will get this one again. I would also recommend it to anyone who likes Guinness.

Ingame Enhancement +1

No gaming tonight. I shared this brew with the courier that brought me the Tactical Nuclear Penguin.

Overall 7/10

This is a great and drinkable stout. Just enough flavour is satisfy, but not too much to overwhelm.
