3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brewery is amazing, delicious beer, good people, and awesome atmosphere! This beer pours a dark color with a full tan head that becomes a thin tan ring at the top of the beer. The smell is of oatmeal and chocolate that is faint but just enough to leave an impression. The taste is of fine malts and a toasted chocolate flavor which is so good, and last on the palate that leaves you wanting more. Great beer, and a place I will come for a long time!

A little thin on the nose. Dark malt, hay roasted and burnt salted toffee. Cold pressed Berry and olive. No head on tap. Again, needs some more complexity to bring to the next level.

Aroma is roasted and light caramel malts, milk chocolate, figs, plums, light earthy hops, and some ash. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting dark fruit esters, sweet chocolate, light earthy hops; finishes nice and dry/ashy but definitely a lot of sweetness there. Medium body and low carbonation.

On Nitro at Old Chicago. What a beautiful presentation ... Thick and black, nitro serves this beer well. Rich, toasty, almost whiskey-laden. Good, solid, chewy stout. (#4652, 7/4/2012)

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Gripp. Upon popping the cap, a small bubbly brown pillar climbed out of the neck. Not quite a gusher, but leaning that way! Enormous head formation in the glass. Nice choc-roasty aroma and flavour, but this beer is killed by the carbo. It is a gas bomb! The fizziest stout I’ve had in memory. Wow.
