Review - Tuckerman Brewing Company's Tuckerman 6288 Stout
"With dense fog, bitter cold, brutal winds and heavy snow, 6,288-foot high Mount Washington has earned its reputation for the "world's worst weather". In 1934, the Mount Washington Observatory recorded a wind gust of 231 mph - a world record to this day. To commemorate this legendary institution, Tuckerman Brewing Company donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Sixty-Two Eighty-Eight Stout to the Mount Washington Observatory." -- Tuckermans
Pours a deep dark brown that generates a two-finger fizzy light-brown head. Completely opaque having settled, and the head has completely dissipated with some loose lacing as the glass is swirled. Aroma is of roasted and toasted malts with a bit of a burnt characteristic. Initial taste is a slightly bitter with some coffee notes, growing increasingly bitter towards the end with a bit more burnt malt taste. Medium bodied, creamy texture with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Decent stout that is bitter and burnt tasting. Doesn't live up to it\'s reputation.
