On tap in Granite City in Orland Park. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is light with notes of chocolate and roasted malt with some biterness of coffee. A watered down version of guiness.

2004 ABR. Did not finish the Autumn Brew Review off on a good note. Smells like milk chocolate. Appearance is lacking. No lace, no head. Looks like diarrhea. Flavor isn’t good either. Looked and tasted flat.

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

Very feint chocolate scents and a small roast. Taste is a tad of chocolate and a bitter coffee roast, light body.

Looks and tastes like milk chocolate...some strange spritziness in the mouthfeel that seemed out of place...some coffee notes...some surprisingly bitter hopping...but very thin-bodied, especially for a stout!

Dark with a nice thick, lasting head. Sweet and lightly roasty, some nicotine and peat. A bit oddly tangy. Nice full palate.

Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall it’s not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts and flavor is chalky, roasty water. Not good at all.
