Weíll be releasing our "Busmanís Holiday" Chocolate/Vanilla/Milk Stout. The name refers to what one would do is his/her off time: example, a brewer oftens spends his or her time away from the brewery homebrewing. The beer is Markís last brew, and is mighty tasty!

Super chocoaltey brew. Very smooth, nice barrel notes. The vanilla adds a bit of smoothness.

On tap at the brewpub. Another winning stout, possibly my fave two on my visit. Nice thick, semi-oily milkshake pour. Lacto notes and mild milk choc in the nose, along with a hint of white chocolate (suppose this is the vanilla, though it seems less than ordinarily straightforward). Lovely mouthfeel, creamy and dry. Roasted malts present in the taste, just enough for balance and not enough to dominate. Flossmoor seems to excel at session stouts.

On tap sampler from February---dark brown, almost black color, the beer had no head when it was brought to the table. Aroma had some chocolate, roasted malts and (agreeing with other reviewers) vanilla. The taste started as chocolate and finish malty. The brew was a little thin.

On tap at the station. Aromas I chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, and some caramel. Nice sweet stou overall. Body is a little thin, but definitely drinkable for sure.

deyholla (9635) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small creamy brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla and dark grains with some backing chocolate. Flavor is similar with vanilla and sweet chocolate with dark grains that come out in the finish. A bit thin.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2012
An opaque dark brown, nearly black in the glass, this stout sported a light tan head and laced the glass nicely. The aroma was dark roasted malt, a spalsh of cream, and a hint of chocolate. The chocolate was more prominent in the flavor and there was a suggestion of vanilla, but the roastiness dominated followed by a mild bitterness. Not bad.
