4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this on tap at the local Old Chicago as one of their rotating locals. Color was dark brown with deep red undertones. Nice light brown creamy head, not too much lacing. Great smell - coffee, roasted chocolate, faint hoppiness. Taste is even stronger than smell - coffee, chocolate, light hops, sweet taste with a very smooth and creamy finish. Great stout.

Canned (backlog). Deep brown, close to black colour with a beigeish brown head. Aroma is chocolate, some nutty notes as well as tobacco and liquorice. Flavour is very similar along with some nice burnt wet wooden notes as well as mild coffee too.

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.

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.
