Pints on tap at the brewpub. This review is from notes.

I asked the bartender which of the house beers he'd consider the establishment's flagship. He said, "people who like dark beers usually like the stout, and people who like hoppier beers usually like the pale." Quite helpful.

So I went for the stout. It was billed as a straight American but smelled very dry, with a burst of spicy hops blending nicely against dark, roasted barley.

It didn't taste as good as it smelled, although nothing was really off about it. Started off with bitter, roasted malts and then those malts are quickly overtaken by a rush of dry hops that doesn't abate until the beer is swallowed. The hops didn't taste particularly American, but I didn't bother to ask the bartender what kind they used. The menu promised nodes of chocolate and citrus hop bitterness, but those didn't materialize. Also, the back end was a little thin.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this on 2012-10-09 in Normal, IL at the brew pub.

A - Opaque black with a 1-finger brown, foamy head and great lacing. Gorgeous.

S - Medium roasted grain, some chocolate. Not very strong.

T - Rich roasted malt and dark chocolate. Not too sweet! Touch of char. Some citrus to clean the palate.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Prickly, sharp/stinging in a nice way.

O - Reminds me of a Founders Porter with a bit less char. Silver winner at the 2011 World Beer Cup.

Serving type: cask
