4.5/5  rDev +26.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pure black & thick. Caramel colored head. Coffee, chocolate, malts dominate the nose. The first sip doesn't disappoint, all the flavors are there. Served a liitle cold for a stout but warms up nicely. Nice creamy mouthfeel & very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Surprisingly sweet upfront, unexpected but appreciated. Very thick, chewy brew. Great alcohol level creates a warming treat.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a pint glass at Flossmoor Station 1/27/07.

A: Pure black and opaque. Dark brown one finger head that recedes to a dark brown ring in under a minute. Sticky dark brown lace, too.

S: Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, and oatmeal.

T: Rich flavors of roasted malt, smooth oatmeal, coffee, bitter chocolate, and a hint of green hops in the finish.

M: Thick and rich and quite creamy.

D: Excellent drinkability. This is one of my favorite locally made stouts and it's quite possible to drink this one all day long.

Served in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.

We need more beers with baseball references. This one pours a ruby-tinted black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises chocolate syrup, roasted malts, light molasses, and brown sugar. The taste holds notes of roasted malts, cocoa powder, light molasses, brown sugar, and toasted oats. The body is a straight medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a very smooth feel. Overall, a nice sessionable stout, something I could easily see drinking quite often if around here more.

Brown head kicks up a few larger bubble than an average stout, and fizzes away quickly, I had no lace. It has that watery but substantial mouthfeel you usually get with a good hand-pulled English beer. Taste reveals complex coffee and cocoa notes, a subtle suggestion of whisky, and a warm oatmeal feel. It gives one that feeling only those who have become acclimated to a slightly oily stout can enjoy. It's bitter, but not hoppy-bitter. I'm left with an impish grin… or am I just puckered up?

On tap at Flossmoor Station, and served in a shaker. This stout poured a deep black color with a thick, creamy, tan head that lasted. Some excellent lace was left around the glass. The aroma consisted of roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. The flavor was very roasty with notes of chocolate and coffee lingering at the end. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. A nice stout from Flossmoor.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. Nose is pretty plain with some lightly-roasted malt, a bit of roast, and some toasted bread. Pretty good feel and body, but overall there really isn't anything that's terribly impressive or out of the ordinary about this one, though the 5% abv is nice.

On tap at the brewpub. This is going to be their new regular stout according to the server, they need to do some tweaking before they do that...A dark brown pour with a light tan head that offers nice retention...The aroma is really nice, has a ton going on, light coffee, oats, sweet cream comes through to balance the coffee. Seems to be a light session stout...The taste is let down, I was expecting a lighter tasting stout, and it was light in taste and feel, but the problem is taste, just tastes bad. Light coffee comes through still but the balance of sweetness is gone, no cream at all, light coffee start to finish, its just boring!

A session stout in the makings, balance out the taste more and this will be fine. Try it now and hopefully later when they've improved.

I got this growler through the Growlers Plus BIF. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours black with two fingers of thick, tan head. Alright retention with very nice lacing.

Smell: Mildly sweet and a bit roasty. Not a ton going on here.

Taste: Quite roasty and a little bitter up front. It smooths out in the middle, but the roast doesn't go away. There is a flavor that is kind of out of place here, perhaps citrus.

Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side. Smooth carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Something was a little bit off with the flavor. Not bad, but I don't think I'll search it out again. Glad to have gotten to try it though!

Served in a pint glass at the brewpub.

The pour of this dark horse is thick black with a nice head of tan foam protruding from the top. The smell of this one was a little licorice and anise, with some hints of possibly oatmeal and dark fruit. The taste of this one was way more mellow than I was expecting and started off with a roasted flavor that combined with a watered down blast of anise and dark fruits. The mouthfeel of this was very watery and it was way smoother than I thought it would be. The drinkability is fairly good this one was a bit too watery for my tastes.

Definitely not one of my favorite beers, but then again I dig the big hop flavor compared to the dark stouts.

On tap at the brewpub on 7/22/12

Irresponsible tick #13

A) Deep, dark brown. One finger head of full foam. Very good retention; the head lasts a long time. Lots of lace, too.

S) Simple aroma of roasted/burnt coffee. Dark grains.

T) The taste has a weird, slyly burnt coffee taste. Extremely bitter cocoa.

M) Medium-full body. Silky smooth feel with low carbonation.

D) It's decent but works better with ice cream.

Pours opaque black with a light tan head. Smell is dry roasty malt. Flavor is pretty solid. Dry chalky roastiness but overall flavor and bottle are a bit thin for my liking and detract a bit. Still not bad flavorwise however, and good if you like the style.
