UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Not as good as I expected out of the can, but it was warm, fresh off the shelf, so I’ll let ’em chill this evening and crack another tonight.
After a second helping, I take back most of what I said above, this beer is a real wonder. Great job all around!

Aroma is roasted malts and some milk-like sweetness. The flavor is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and has a milky consistency. Definitely better in a glass than out of the can, this was a very smooth stout.

I didn’t expect something this good from a brewery called The Wild Onion.

(04.25.06) On tap at Onion Brewpub, Barrington, IL Poured opaque black-brown with a large creamy tan head. No discernable carbonation. Roasted coffee in the nose. Medium bodied stout that starts with light malt sweetness. Coffee/chocolate/roasted malt flavors. Long finish with lingering light roasted malt bitterness. Smooth and full of complex flavors. This is one awesome stout, one of my favorite Onion beers. Brought home a growler to enjoy.

This beer pours black with a small off-white head, and the aroma smells like roasted malts, caramel, and a touch of vanilla. The taste is slightly bitter, slightly umami, and mildly sweet; the palate combines an oily texture, medium-full body, flat carbonation, and a long finish.

Re-Rate 01/04/02:Pours a deep dark brown to black, large chocolate head that settles quickly. Nose roasted and toasted, coffeeish. Start sweet, the middle is full, creamy, thick and the finish is some what dry and a touch of hops, a quaffable beer to be sure.

Isn't the wild onion a smoke shop, or maybe thats the purple onion. Besides that, This is a descent stout. I'm used to much higher percentage/ more powerful stouts, but I could dig this one. It had a good toasty choco taste that had a smooth finish.

Had this on draught in Lake Barrington, Illinois. Completely opaque black color with a noticable head, chocolate, coffee, malt, baked bread in the finish, milky mouthfeel, quite sweet for a stout. A typical, yet good, stout.

Thick & black with a lasting tan head. Big coffee... ALL coffee roasted bitterness in aroma & flavor, with sweet, sweet smoke. Oily mouthfeel with drying bitterness emerging late. For as powerful as it seemed, it went down silk-smooth. I’ll have this again when I go back and I’ll quite possibly bring some home.
