3.09/5 rDev -22.2%
I've been to the brewpub several times but never saw this one on the menu, so when I saw this 22oz bottle at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, I picked one up and brought it home.
The beer poured a very dark brown, almost black color, and made a 2½-finger medium tan head. The head lasted about 2 minutes and left some decent lacing on the glass.
Raisiny smell with bittersweet chocolate and earthy hops.
This is a stout that's more hoppy than malty. Lots of citrus and earthy hop flavor along with some raisin/plum fruitiness. There's a layer of bittersweet baker's chocolate underneath, and then finally you get some roasted malt to come through. There's a lot of bitterness here for a stout, but it's not overly harsh.
Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Some reviewers have commented that this is more like a black IPA than an American stout, and I agree with them. It's OK, but I wouldn't buy it again.

4.2/5 rDev +5.8%
Appearance is pitch black and well carbonated. Almost no head.
Smells of chocolate, roasted nuts, and hot sugar.
Slight caramel, chocolate, burnt sugar, and a hint of coffee.
The mouthfeel is lush and smooth but a little thin for my taste.
Overall I was only slightly disappointed with this brew as I was looking for something thicker, but still a damn good choice.
