Sampled at the brewpub in Wrigleyville. Nice brown color with a decent head. Sweet and malty with definite roasty and sour notes. It's alright but I doubt I will order it again. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Tap at Clybourn. Pours a darker cola color with a fine fizzy off-white head. Flavor is roasty, ashy, fruity, typical port type flavors, a bit buttery, vaguely English, touch of coffee, lingering ash, smooth and mellow. Thin water body with soft crisp carbonation. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Dark brown body tan head. Little lacing. Cola vanilla toffee aroma with earthy notes...damp leaves. Sweet cola vanilla flavor with a nice bitter caramel backdrop. Feels light on the palate. Lightly carbonated but what is there is sharp. Finish unpleasant lasting bitter metallic flavor...maybe some masa in there as well...burnt tortilla? A light mess of a brown on the sweet side.
