3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Standard market, draft. Very dark, almost black. Licorice and coconut and cocoa powder all coming to the nose. Rich dark chocolate and more coconut with a bit of alcohol heat all mix together nicely. This is rich and sweet, good for dessert.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark pour, not really brown. Aroma is sweet with caramel. Taste is a little machine like. After taste is slightly acrid. This could have been from an old keg, but I wasn’t impressed. Not what I expected.

Dessert in a bottle YUM YUM. You can really taste the molasses! Drinks like a Stout or porter, although its a Nut Brown Ale.

First beer I have had by Flossmoor and I want more. What a nice complex brown ale. I dont know why its classified as a porter as there was very little roastyness and the color was well.... brown, but to each his own. Very nutty lightly sweet caramel flavors with a nice hoppy finish to round it out.

Very rich a roasty, a delicious sweetness from the molasses, tastes home-brewed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is malty along a strong hint of sweetness, probably from the molasses. The flavor is caramel and malty and has a heavy sweetness from the molasses. Decent ale although the molasses made it a bit too sweet for my tastes.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. It’s a gusher! Dark brown pour, way too much carbonation and a slightly nutty aroma. Flavor wasn’t actually all that bad, chocolatey like a good porter, some sweet roasted malt and unfortunately way too much odd effervesence and carbonation. I think this bottle was compromised and would be willing to try again and rerate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with DalzAle. Pours foam everywhere. Once I get some to rest in the glass it looks brown with a tight khaki head that lasts. Aroma is malty and burnt sugar. Taste is full of carbonation and bitter with sight coco notes and burnt sugar. Palate is thin and pure fizz with a chalky finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle poured a deep dark brown aromas of malt, molasses, chocolate, and a touch of coffee. Flavor matches the aroma, that would be a good brew to drink again.
