tricked into going to granite city. tried to keep an open mind about the beer, as itís from a chain restaurant in the mall. This was better than I expected. pours kind of like a guinness. More roasted malt and chocolate than guinness. very creamy. could have been worse.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in Cleveland (OH)
Another so-so impersonation of a stout mirrors the Momís Cookies. Any highlights are drowned in a sea of watery blandness. Save your time and money unless you want a cheap tick.
Aroma / Appearance - A black fluid base swirls limply around the glass. Thin bodied and watery the view alone inspires little confidence of a great memorable experience. Coffee and undercooked oatmeal have cheap smoky undertones like a smoking patio rinsed clean by a rain shower.
Flavor / Palate - Watery smoke and cheap coffee tease the palate with a promise of something better. If you took the bottom of the pot and added enough water to unstick it youíd have a good equivalent of this flavor profile. A half hearted release falls just short of average and isnít worth more than two ounces at best.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the brewpub. The appearance was a dark brown to black, with a decent amount of head, and moderate lacing. The flavor was a roasty aroma, smoky, and a mild hint of coffee and chocolate. Not a bad stout.

An okay looking stout, but really there was not much flavour here. Watered down. Cheap.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very drinkable, lots of rich creamy texture, with some dark malt chocolate and caramel, with some chicory notes, and a light bit of roasted coffee acidity. Pretty dry and bitter in the finish, a solid stout.
