4.8 / 5.011 ReviewsMy first timeThis is the first beer batch I ever brewed. I expected nothing from this, I had heard that it wouldn't be very flavorful because it comes in a can. I figured it would be a good one just to get started brewing before I do anything more complex. It's not as stout as I expected, my ultimate goal is to make a good irish stout. The flavor was new, rich, and really opened up my mind to possibilities.March 31, 2015export stoutThis LME makes a deep rich stout beer that is slightly bitter/roasty and mildly nutty too. A great way to jump into different stlyes of beer without steeping or partial mashing.September 29, 2013Makes a good stoutIts all made for you, just add water, boil, cool and add yeast._x000D_You can make half batches (2.5 gallons) with this and experiment by adding coffee._x000D_November 26, 2013Good roasty flavorI used it to make a quickie 20 minute kit. The stout tasted quite good and no one complained that it was any different from the other full boil kits. Tastes good and is very fast - 20 minutes.February 7, 2014Great BeerGreat beer! Not as heavy as you might expect. Used 2 quarts of corn syrup instead of sugar. Even used cane sugar to prime. Had to try after a week in bottle and it was verry drinkable at early age. The whole batch was gone in about 3 weeks. Will be making again !May 3, 2011Great StoutI used the recommended Dextrose on the can it turned out very well. Very easy kit to do. I'm having trouble letting it age because it is so good.October 16, 2012Very goodThough I'm not normally a fan of using hopped liquid malt extract, this is very good. It works very well in the simple 20 minute boil kits. This is a big step up from the Mr. Beer kits I started with.February 22, 2013Solid beerThis is a good beer when brewed according to the instructions: 1 can hopped extract, 3 lbs table sugar (I use 2 lbs dark brown, 1 lbs table), and their supplied yeast. This produces a good beer with none of that mythical "cider" taste from using sucrose. The hop flavor is well balanced, but there is no hop aroma. Also, because of the malt/sugar ratio, it is not as full bodied as some other stouts. For me, I actually enjoy it because I can enjoy more beer._x000D__x000D_If you want to spend an extra few bucks, you can "upgrade" this beer by replacing an amount of the table sugar with dark dry malt extract and dry hopping to add aroma. I wouldn't replace all the sugar with malt, personally, because the beer would be too heavy, I think. Try 1.5 lbs of dark DME with 1.5 lbs table sugar._x000D__x000D_I knocked a star off of the price rating because most people will probably want to dry hop and incorporate some DME, increasing the cost. But not much. You should be able to turn this into a killer brew for less than $25._x000D__x000D_I knocked a star off of quality because the lack of hop aroma._x000D__x000D_I didn't incorporate lacing into the value rating because, honestly, I've never managed to get good lacing from an extract brew, so I never consider this. It's entirely cosmetic, anyway._x000D__x000D_April 16, 2013Makes good StoutI'm impressed, the stout came out very well. It has a rich taste and is better than some of the stouts I can buy in cans. This is fresh and of good quality.August 29, 2013quick & easy....& good!if you like guiness stout (not to be confused with guiness draught) then you will like this. It is very similar, but more fresh of course. I made a 2.5g batch with just the can (no dextrose, etc) and used wyeast irish ale yeast. 2 weeks in primary, 1 week in bottles, i'm enjoying a really good stout. For 5 gallons, i'd recommend just using 2 cans, which would give you better flavor than all that dextrose. Mine was 5.3% abv. If brewed like that, the price is just as much as a whole extract kit, but you can't beat the ease of boiling water, adding extract at flameout, chilling & pitching.December 3, 2011
