Stoutfest 2012, one of the most interesting brews of the day. Dark black/brown pour with almost no head. Aroma of mint, cherry, and chocolate. Not really sure how to describe the taste other than interesting, but I actually enjoyed it.

Draft at Stout Fest. One of my least favorite beers of the day. Pours a deep brown black with a tan head. The nose mixes to give a weird star anise character. Spearmint is unsettling. Some cherry notes and cough syrup. Cocoa. On tasting, more of that anise type thing, though more subdued. Cocoa and cherries and booze. Not a fan.

Enjoyed on tap at Goose Island Stout Fest 2012 in Chicago, IL. I can’t decipher the text that I wrote after drinking 17 different stouts before this, so I’ll just post my text as is - Ap pitch black no head thin white rim. aroma cherry, cho colgate, decent. Rate sweet but good, drunk.

Samples poured on tap at Goose Island Clybourn’s Stoutfest 2012 (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer blackish hue, near opaque with brownish light on the edges. A small frothy tannish head that dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are minty leaves and touches of cherry. Touches of toast, biscuits. Mellow cocoa, coffee, rich mint kinda becomes the focus with a cherry blend. Initial is medium bodied offering some more powerful cherry, cool mint, touches of ginger into the middle, some medicinal cherry up front gets a bit distracting. Middle is cool, touches of coffee, biscuits, roast. Backend is cherry juice and roast, toast, some cocoa. Dry toast, mellow mint and cherry stick into the finish. An odd one.
