The Suburban Brew Tram Track Stout


Stout season is upon us once more, and it hasn’t taken Suburban long to launch into dark territory with a straight up, no nonsense stout with not an adjunct in sight. With their home located just on the outskirts of Adelaide’s CBD, a tram line runs right past Suburban’s front door – less than a 100 metre walk away – making it ideal for their policy of naming beers with local references.

Tram Track Stout is laced with dark malts and a good addition of oats to add to the silky mouthfeel, leaving you with a 6.2 percent ABV beer that is equal parts warming and just enough on the lighter side to have a couple.

It pours a very dark brown or light black in colour with some trademark feint dusty cocoa, a decent whack of coffee and a little roast arising from its head. There is a full-bodied mouthfeel with a touch of those creamy oats, in which you'll pick up dried currants, a little dark chocolate, coffee and a decent amount of roast that almost comes off as a touch smoky. A smidge of sweetness flits in early before drying out well, leaving coffee and roast bitterness on the palate.
