3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Dark brown, very dark, with a light brown head. Prominent roast profile with a lower-key lactic sweetness that hits it just right for me. In other words, not TOO sweet, but a solid stout with sweet tendencies.... Whatever, I liked it. It was good. Not overly complex, but good. Creamy mouthfeel.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint can. Opaque ebony with a lasting thin covering of foam. Nose is nearly charred grain, dusty grain, and old coffee. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, caramel, lightly tart berry and bitterish green herb. Near-medium body has a medium-high but mostly smooth carbonation. Nice balance and pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep in color with just some red edges. Medium mouthfeel reminds me of an Irish but with some more body. Light finish I would not characterize as sweet but still tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can to glass. Pours a glassy brown with a small, quickly disappearing khaki head. Aroma is primary vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar, with a little less sweetness than the aroma. Good example of the style.

pint can poured into tulip glass. Murky brown color with tan head. ARoma is caramel, cola, light coffee and earthy. Taste is a bit boring without any real flaws just kind of 2009.

Big can in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts, light chocolate, some hints of hops, and some dough. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Boonieís on the Avenue. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, pretty sweet with a light earthy bitterness. Medium body with a smooth creamy feel. A little too sweet for my liking but still pretty good.
