This is more like a black IPA than a stout. Aroma is of grapefruit and heavy on hops. Tastes of chocolate and toasty caramel. Lots of hops in the mouth and a nice grapefruit finish. Lovely, lovely beer!!!

On tap at the Goose Island Clybourn location. Big time citrus/grapefruit scents, taste is some nice sweet malt and a nice bitter, almost like a black IPA.

Sample at the Clybourn brewpub. This Stout pours Black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, anise and malt. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of coffee, licorice, malt and hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a roast coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Super tobacco beer. Weird because the smokiness of the beer is more musty than you would expect. Has a nice amount of chocolate malts and a pleasant and fairly balanced hop edge... tried with Nick and his friend at the brewery in 2012.
