Pour is black with a tight caramel colored head. Nose is heavy roast light up front, orange citrus liquor, faint notes of chocolate malt, more lingering almost burnt roasted malts. Taste is a bit messy, lots of booziness throughout, orange citrus liquor, roast isn't quite as over cooked as the nose, not acrid which I thought it would be, malts are a bit richer mid palate, but lots of sugar and sweetness through the back end mixing with the orange citrus. Full body, a bit slick, moderate carbonation, semi dry finish with some bitter chocolate through the finish.

Well, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers, but I think a birthday or two may be what she needs. A little heavy on the orange and thin on the body, but still quite delicious. I bought a couple of extra to cellar, with any luck this will gain about a 1/4 of a point in rating per year. There'a a lot of great breweries in Chicago, but these guys put out world class beers more consistently than any of the other guys (in my humble opinion).

Tastes like an orange ale. Still some stout flavor, though the orange masks it a bit. Good though if you like orange.
