Broken Bow Broken Heart Stout



Review Date 10/24/2020 By John Staradumsky

Look what I found! A can of Broken Heart Stout from the Broken Bow brewery of Tuckahoe, New York. I had no idea how long I have had this can hidden in my beer fridge, but a little binging uncovers a Youtube video by the one and only Tom the Beer Whisperer as he reviews this beer. I think we got it from the same source, which means my can is about five years old-uh oh!

Broken Bow Brewery still makes Broken Heart Stout, and the label remains the same. They say this about it on their website:

A remarkably smooth dark beer that boasts roasted malt & coffee flavors accentuated by a hint of chocolate. Mt Hood & Fuggle Hops provide a dynamic bitterness to this beer that finishes dry.

Broken Bow Broken Heart Stout has an alcohol content of 6.4% by volume and I do not know how much it sells for. Total Wine does not list it for sale.

Broken Bow Broken Heart Stout pours to a jet-black color with a towering head of creamy tan foam and a soft chocolate and roast nose. Taking a sip, the beer is light to medium in body, roasty and chocolaty, hints lightly at coffee. It finishes roasty bitter and dry.

Keep in mind my review is of a can aged five years, but it compares quite favorably with the notes Tom found in it. The earthy hop notes are gone but that is not surprising given the age. Overall, I would give this beer 3 ½ stars with another half tacked on for holding up to age as well as it has.

I would surely buy this beer again.

And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
