3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery during hi-fi release. Pours black with a rosy brown head. Smell is roasted coffee and chocolate with some faint barnyard (earthy) backing. Taste is similar with the roasted chocolate really coming out thanks to the smooth creamy texture. Pretty delicious

Glass at Flossmoor. Black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and bitter hops. Chocolate malt flavor with a slight touch of fruit before a super dry roasty finish.

On tap at Flossmoor. Pours black with a khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, and light floral hops. The flavor is dark smoky malts, dark espresso, and milk chocolate. Full-flavored but not heavy. Excellent overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, malt, slight coffee, and smoke. Aroma is way chocalatey. Taste is of malt, bitter chocolate, slight coffee, and old fruit. Very light, almost watery. Not much body, and very thin. Slight, bitter chocolate aftertaste. Just bad.

This poured a dark dark browen with a light tan head. Aroma was really rasoted and dry with hints of coffee as well. Flavor was really dry, nice and roasted and some coffee bitterness as well. No residual sweetness at all. Great dry stout.

Pours black with a tan head. Roasty, Chocolately aroma. The flavor is very roasty, some smoke and coffee. Chocolate as well. Might be a bit thin for a stout, but still awesome. Worth having.

Black with a frothy tan head. Roasty blackened malt aroma with some pit fruits. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Good stout flavors here of dry blackened malts with some light cocoa. Finish is long and dry. Classic stout here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Sampled from the full sampler at Flossmoor Station. Small cocoa tinged head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate that excite the senses. Tastes of roasted dark malts, chocolate malts, and a touch of coffee. Finishes a bit bitter but overall, a smooth enjoyable beer that relaxes me. Worth getting in your growler.
