4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single can from Binnyís, Downers Grove. Frothy brown head over a brownish black body. Chocolate nose, but not quite as roasty, thanks to the oatmeal. I note the texture first, since itís been carbonated, and thatís worth noting after so many stouts with nitro and widgets. But itís also leaving some stickiness on my lip and has a hint of a tangy Guinness sour note, followed more of that chocolate roast. Then there is a slight note of vanilla once my palate has been brought into equilibrium. An enjoyable session beer to welcome back cold weather, though being in a full pint can may make it seem a bit less sessionable.

Roasted aroma, with a hint of milk chocolate. Pours an opaque black with a full tan head. Slightly sweet flavor, nicely balanced by roasted notes. Lighter in body then one would expect upon looking at it, with a full mouthfeel. Very nice and approachable stout.
