Out of Bounds Stout Ranked Number One in Competition

Great minds think alike.   Back in June, I wrote of the perfect convergence of beer and smoke when I teamed an Out of Bounds Stout, by Avery Brewing, with a God of Fire Robusto by Don Carlos.  I rated the Out of Bounds Stout a 9.6 on The Morris Scale — the highest ranking ever for a stout.  I declared it my new favorite stout.

In the US Open Beer Championship, as reported on BeerInfo.com, the Out of Bounds Stout ranked number one out of all the stouts tasted.  Here is the complete list of the top ten stouts (but what happened to number 4?):

3. Milk of Amnesia, Maui Brewing – Hawaii
