Shipyard Blue Fin Stout Brewed by Shipyard Brewing in Portland, Maine

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Pours a dark motor oil black, with a thin mocha colored head and not much lacing to speak of but there is some.

Aroma: Aroma gives off some dark roasted malts, chocolate notes, and a blend of coffee and caramel. Awesome smell to this beer and especially sweeter than bitter.

Taste: Strong coffee flavor, mixed with hints of caramel is what I get in the initial flavor. Beer blends into a sweet chocolate and dark fruit combination that finishes with a dry, bread or nutty dryness.

Mouthfeel: Mouth has a sweet texture and not overly bitter. All the components for a good stout are there.

Overall: This is a session stout and is delicious at that. Lacks the ABV of a trophy type stout, but it doesnt matter because now instead of having 2 glasses of a bomber, you can have 6 beers of this and be straight!

 Shipyard Blue Fin Stout
Shipyard Brewing Company
The Shipyard Brewing Company has been making award-winning, hand-crafted beer in Maine for nearly 20 years. Now one of the largest craft breweries in the country, the company has its roots in the picturesque seacoast village of Kennebunkport Harbor, where, in 1992, entrepreneur Fred Forsley and master brewer Alan Pugsley started Federal Jack's Restaurant & Brew Pub, the birthplace of Shipyard ales.

The craft brew industry was just starting in Maine and Alan had recently moved here from England where he'd learned to brew under the legendary Peter Austin at the world-famous Ringwood Brewery in Hampshire. The launch of Federal Jack's coincided with the birth of America's craft beer industry and, just two years later, demand outpaced the brewing capacity at the pub and Fred and Alan opened the Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland in 1994. By 1996, the company was the fastest growing craft brewery in the country.

Shipyard beers are all about drinkability, consistency and balance and every batch is brewed by hand in small batches using only the finest ingredients, including top-fermenting, multi-strain yeast from Ringwood Brewery. Try it and you'll see why it's the taste that sets Shipyard's beer apart.
