The Master of Disguise is an Imperial Golden Stout. Some of you may be thinking, “Golden Stout? WAT? That doesn’t even make sense!” Some of you are right; this beer makes no sense and is weird as shit.
This beer just rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning; it smelled like a can of Miller, and poured thinly until a surprise bit of foam right at the bottom of the bottle. Going into my first sip I was expecting the taste to fall in line with the smell…..NO……NOPE………what I tasted couldn’t have been expected. This is seriously one of the weirdest beers I have ever drank, peeps.
Lightly roasted coffee flavors..maybe a little bit of white chocolate..surprisingly thick body…but off. Something was off. I can’t put my finger on what we didn’t like about this beer! None of us can! There was just something off about it. It was like the carbonation and foam made the beer seem full bodied, but once the foam settled, then it became much thinner.
I shouldn’t have taken the bait. I shouldn’t have bought into the gimmick of a “Golden Stout.” I cheesed up, guys! I don’t especially recommend trying this beer unless you wanna have a trippy moment with your taste buds. I wish I had better things to say about this beer, but I don’t! I will say this is the first of Stone’s Stochasticity bomber line that I don’t like. Better luck next time I guess!
