Rich coffee and dark, smoky chocolate aroma. Mellow and dry up front, bitter at the end. Rich and creamy. Brown soft head above a typical dark body. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Glass at Flossmoor. Black pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and bitter hops. Chocolate malt flavor with a slight touch of fruit before a super dry roasty finish. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2007
On tap at StoutFest. Poured a deeper brown with a short cap of caramel head. Aroma picked up sweet oats, roasted barley, and milk chocolate.. hints of floral hoppage and coffee as it warmed up. Flavor found dark and milky chocolates, flaked oats, and a grainy coffee bitterness... tasty and rather simple. Lighter-bodied on the palate with a nice flow.. solid overall.

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. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Sampled from the full sampler at Flossmoor Station. Small cocoa tinged head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate that excite the senses. Tastes of roasted dark malts, chocolate malts, and a touch of coffee. Finishes a bit bitter but overall, a smooth enjoyable beer that relaxes me. Worth getting in your growler.
