TheAlum (7110) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Growler from the brewery picked up for the Bears game (Chicago, IL). Pours a very dark blackish hue, opaque with touches of brown, a cakey moderate darker brown head, stays moderate sized, laces well. Aromas are rich dark cocoa and roasted malts, touches of brown sugar, molasses, coffee grounds. Chocolate, cream, earthy tobacco, touches of lactose but not big. Kinda like a blend of a lot of cacao, rich and dark, dry roast. The sweetness is there, but it is so much more. Almost like a stout brewed with a Brown Ale appeal. Initial is medium bodied, throwing roast and cocoa, dark cacao nibs, touches of molasses, brown malts, roasted malts, sweeter cocoa and toffee. Touches of biscuits. The beer itself is a little light on body, with dry and roast lingering on, cacao and some sweetness, light lactose, toast and touches of earthy tobacco and brown malts, roasted barley. I think the surprisingly less sweet beer makes it a little thinner on body overall. Really, this feels like a chocolate loaded brown porter to me. Touches of milk sugar, but it really falls behind to me. Roast, dry, cocoa. Touches of coffee grounds work there way in a bit. Not a bad beer, tasty, just a little bit underbodied and not as sweet as youd expect a sweet stout to be. A great display of cocoa.. The natural way with some light touches of sweetness and plenty of unsweetened dark chocolate, roasty malts, dry and lingering sweetness hangs on a bit. Me thinks this beer has brought out the homer in some of us..

About half way through one of the growlers I picked up. Pours very dark brown with nice large dark tan head. Beautiful looking stout. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors of roasted malt and unsweetened chocolate. A bit of lactose, but not much. Finish dry and roasty. Mouthfeel is a thin. A little thicker body and we would have a real winner. Solid beer none-the-less.

Bottle. Pours with a black hued body and medium sized tan head with some good retention. Aromas are fudgy, coffee, cola, soil, bready malts and dusty. Flavors are dusty, nutty, fudge and cocoa. Medium to strong sweetness, a touch thinner than I expected. Medium carbonation.

On tap, poured into an imperial pint glass. The aroma is immidiately a warm cookie and cacao, which then turns to chocolate malt (strong lactose presence) and a roasted grain late. It pours a dark, nearly opaque, brown black with a tan, soft foam and soap head that leaves moderate micro-bubble lace, and reduces to messy soapy medium thin ring, before disappearing from the surface altogether. The taste is a medium / medium-high sweet with a medium bitterness supporting it. Its oily and smooth, turning sticky with warmth, and thin. A zippy carbonation aides the drink in going down easy. A medium body starts with notes of licorice that fade as chocolate malt takes over. There a light roasted and burnt quality near the end with some citrus appearing at the finish. Its a bit gritty and grainy, with hints of rye late that lightly linger.

6ish pour at Revolution Brewery grand opening. Black with a tan foamy head, quickly fading to leave some lace on the plastic cup. Smells of sweet chocolate, roasted characters and espresso. Medium bodied with a residual sweetness and a noble hop bitterness. Smells better than it tastes.

5 ounce sampler at the Half Acre tap room. Aroma was coffee and cola, appearance was dark brown and thinly foamed on top, taste was more predominantly coffee than chocolate, palate was fairly light and fizzy. The chocolate flavors are a dark, semisweet variety. Overall, its A-ok, drinkable, accessible for the masses. I had expected a heavier body, thicker, creamier, more chocolate.
