On tap at Goose Island’s Clybourne pub. A - Deep brown, opaque appearance with three fingers of creamy tan head, looks absolutely delicious. S - Smells pretty good, burnt malts are the biggest, can pick up some chocolate and sweet caramel in the background, nothing surprising. T - Again the most prominent flavor is the burnt malt, bitter chocolate and sweet raisins and caramel. There’s something sort of earthy in the background that reminds me of tobacco. As it finishes the burnt malts are what stays with you; its really amazing, like the beer is actually a bit charred, very tasty. M - Medium bodied, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, very dry finish. O - A really solid, enjoyable stout, picked up a growler after trying my first glass. In a perfect world Goose Island would be bottling this stuff. Serving type: on-tap 04-06-2011

On tap at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is roasty with a nice dark chocolate backing. Some earth, grains, and char. Flavor is similar. Heavily roasted with some char, bitter dark chocolate, earth, and a touch of oats. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter with plenty of roasts and a bit of a creamy chocolate. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-thin body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid dry stout. Very roasty and flavorful with a nice chocolate backing. Not bad.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft in a sampler at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours a dark coffee brown, just about opaque, with a small beige head. The aroma is dry, with chocolate, toast, brown sugar, and oats. The flavor brings more roast and coffee, even some ashy smoke, with dark fruits and oats. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, very roasty mouthfeel. Underrated. This was solid.

Less bitter than I’m used to for a dry stout. Smooth and creamy. A decent stout.

wedgie9 (1930) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2011
Tasted on 4/5/11 on draft at the Clybourn Brewpub. Pours almost black brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to thick and even lace, leaving a ton of residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is dark malt, dark chocolate, nutty, and very dry. The flavor is also very dry with dark chocolate, roasted malt, and moving to a ton of bitter coffee on the back. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nutty and bitter coffee finish.

Traditional dry stout. Dark brown with notes of cocoa, roasted nuts, coffee, and wood. A very smooth and dry finish.

tmoreau (2424) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
On tap and shaker served at GI Wrigleyville, with lunch, and before the CBS DotLA event. Presented a black/brown hue, with a fairly lasting, creamy, tan head, with thick bands & scattered spots of lacing. The aroma was roasty, with coffee, baker’s chocolate, a touch of aromatic tobacco, and a hint of wood. The flavor added moderate hop bitterness in a medium body, with a dry finish. Pretty tasty, and went very well with the burger.

Tap @ Clybourn. Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma is roasted and dry with hints of chocolate and mild coffee. The flavor is more of the same: roasted, chocolate, light coffee. Light-medium bodied with a dry finish. Decent.
