On tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). Day 4, Base beer of Pullman Brown. Another one I had to make it out to try, and frankly, I thought it would be a bit better. Pours a darker brown with some auburn highlights, a decent tannish head that laces fairly well. It still pretty much looks like Pullman. Aromas are similar, darker caramel malts, nuttiness, a touch of tobacco, and some cocoa and slight cherry on the nose. Interesting, as initial is very Pullman forward with some cocoa into the body more that makes it a bit more silky. The cherries play a much smaller role than anticipated, a slight sweetness and tartness on the backend, not really maraschino in nature, more tart. Ok, but the first of the beers I did not like more than the base.

#4 of the 12 Beers of Christmas: Again very true to the base beer (Pullman Brown in this case) To this fine porter has been added, again in remarkable moderation, chocolate and tart cherries. The chocolate is a bit more pronounced upfront, in both the nose and the flavor. The tart cherries are pretty much in the background and mostly in the finish...and add aslight sourness in the aftertaste. Decent holiday brew.

On tap at the brewpub, Day 4 of the 12 Beers of Christmas: Nice. Dark brown bodied, nearly opaque, with a sustained light tan head and thick lace. The aroma started with milk chocolate, added some llght roasted dark malt, and finished with a cherry or two. Same with the flavor, having the cherries come mainly in at the finish.
