Reviewing the Thundersnow from Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery out of Flossmoor, Illinois.

Score: 91

Tap pour served in a sampler glass and enjoyed on 04/07/13 as part of my three breweries in three states Sunday roadtrip with Ilana "B is for Bananas" Feldman. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Coffee color with two fingers of creamy khaki head atop. Solid lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Chocolate, roast, faint coffee grounds. Brown sugar and a touch of cherry-like fruitiness. 4/5

Taste: Lots of roast, dry bitter chocolate and slightly fruity malt. Not barrel aged, but I get a little of wood flavor too. Faint hops. Very dry and roasty, slightly ashy (in a good way) and "nutty" finish 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus bodied, low carbonation. Bitter with bittersweet qualities. 4/5

Overall: A solid bitter Russian imperial stout with good flavor balance. This beer is a prime candidate for bourbon barrel aging, as I feel the bourbon sweetness with provide a good contrast to the base. I guess I will find out when Flossmoor releases the barrel aged version of this the afternoon before Dark Lord Day.

Cost: Unknown cost.
