Draft. Pours black with creamy tan head. Aroma is real nutty with dark chocolate, caramelly too. Flavors prickly carbonation right off the bat, with some nutty cocoa gojng on, finishes dry. Med body. Good stuff, maybe just needs to tone down the carbonation.

August 6, 2012 on tap at Clybourn. Dark brown pour with limited head. Roasted malt and chocolate in the aroma and taste. Light to medium body with a dry finish. Really wanted to try this on cask, but was just a few hours too early.

crossovert (7200) - Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Cask. This one is uncarbonated and warm which lends itself to chugging. This is one o those stouts that kind of ends up in the middle of them all style-wise.

Sample at the Clybourn brewpub. Pours dark brown-black with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted grains and mild hops. The finish is roasty with a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
