Draft at Owen & Engine. Pours black with a creamy tan head. The nose is moderately roasty and chocolate, some toasted notes and faint hop presence. On tasting, a well built stout. Drying finish, not sweet really. Some caramel and coffee roast, cocoa. Medium bodied and creamy with a pleasant bitterness overall. Quite nice.

A decent stout. Good 2-finger head on this, so nice appearance. Had somewhat of a metallic taste to it, which I docked some points for. I’d prefer a Lefthand to this, but this will do if you’re at the brewpub and want to give it a shot. Very drinkable, but there are better ones out there in the style.

a deliciously simple brew... enjoyably not-too-sweet... easy on the carbonation... dark chocolate undertones... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can. Jack stout is thick and black. It puts off a tan foam at top and a heavy, roasted chocolate smell. The taste is more chocolate and coffee mixed with smokey wood. I really enjoyed this and it got me excited to find out what else Wild Onion has going on up in Lake Barrington.

Can brought by and shared with ck1, thanks bro! Pours dark brown with super foamy browinsh head. ck1 says bad pour. Aroma has chocolate, caramel and lactose notes. Taste is of milk chocolate, some roasted malt and sweet caramel. A bit thin. Finishes somewhat dry and milky bittersweet. A bit more body would help. ck1 gave it a 12.5.

Very dark with a thin tannish head. Roasty toasty with a bit of coffee, cocoa, and cherry. Very smooth finish.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a black with a big foamy tan head. Aroma is a bit weaker, but it is good. More roasted than anything, with nuts, vanilla, and traces of chocolate. Chocolate is more pronounced in the taste. It is still nutty and roasty, but there is also caramel involved here. Very nutty and chocolaty aftertaste. I think many people would enjoy this, and there isn’t anything really negative to report. Not bad for a local option. But for some reason I would prefer others from this style.
