On draft at Flossmoor, poured a dark black color, aromas of roasted malt, lots of chocolate, and a twinge of coffee. Flavors are the same, light vanilla cream in the aftertaste, solid sessionable stout. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
On tap at the brewpub, pours black with a tan head and a little lacing, the aroma is very roasty with a little bit of chocolate and coffee, flavor has an odd sour front end with a finish of chocolate and roasted malt, kind of like soy sauce on the front end, ok just not my thing.

On cask at the brewery. Very nice looking pour, chewy and thick as is only appropriate for the style. Thick silky head, and a scrumptious nose of toasted oats, silky choc, and bitter hops. Mouthfeel as good as hoped for, and the flavors are perfectly apposite for the style. I’m always a sucker for a dry stout when done well, as this one was. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2012
This has strong coffee notes coming of this, almost in a porter-like way. Lengthy aftertaste. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Draught at Flossmoor Station - brewpub. Black - brown head. Licorice, chocolate, oiley notes, fruity, ok burned, soft body and finish, light creamy, light dry finish.

On tap at Flossmoor Station. Pours dark black with brownish head. Aroma is oatmeal, roasted malts, soy sauce. Some coffee. Taste is super smooth, cocoa powder, soy sauce, oatmeal. Finishes dry and smooth, a bit short but some body. Strykzone (7351) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Sampled at the brewpub. Stout looking with a small tan head and lacing. Coffee and some cocoa in the nose. I taste earthy cocoa and soggy bittering hops. Not a favorite but not bad. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Live rate @ Flossmoor Station! Deep, dark mahogany pour bordering squid ink with a fluffy latte head. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, roasted coffee, and char. Flavor is subtle but is every bit of it’s 5.5% ABV. Cocoa laced coffee bean, slight vanilla, and roasted marshmallow. A little slippery for my taste...still respectable. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2011
At the brewpub. Smooth, very smooth. Roasted slightly burnt coffee flavor but well tempered by some sweet malt. Quite nice. Serving: Tap Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. Nose is pretty plain with some lightly-roasted malt, a bit of roast, and some toasted bread. Pretty good feel and body, but overall there really isn’t anything that’s terribly impressive or out of the ordinary about this one, though the 5% abv is nice.
Serving type: on-tap
