3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the Half Acre taproom. Tan beer with a thin ring of foam. Deep choclate smell, kind of carried away by the roasty malt. More roasty stout in the taste. Pretty dry, and seems lighter in alcohol than even the claimed amount.
Bomber. Pours a dark brown with a tan head and nice chocolate aroma. Taste is full of sweet milk chocolate notes, with roasted malt, and coffee notes into the creamy, chocolate finish. jjgmd (2295) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2017

Aroma is chocolate, coffee and dark/roasted malts. The flavor is chocolate, fruit/dark fruit, slight milk sweetness and an acidic/earthy finish. gregwilsonstl (2711) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Porch beer in early Feb? 60 degrees out? Yep! Dark black. Think tan head. Thick creamy milky stout. A touch of vanilla would have kicked this into a 4, but as is, it’s really nice. I want more.

On tap at Ellyn’s Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL. and dispensed to a tulip displaying a black/brown hue, with a sudsy layer of light chocolate brown froth, and sheet-like coating of clingy lacing. The nose was roasted, malty, soft grain, and cocoa, with a slight freezer burn scent. Medium bodied, with low carbonation that prompted an impression of lightened texture, the taste was somewhat similar, continued cocoa, a touch of char, a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel, earthy & roasted bitterness, and a lightly dry finish. A nicely drinkable Milk/Sweet Stout. NikkTwist (3409) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2017

On tap at Timothy O’Tooles in Gurnee. Big chocolate malts, leaning to the sweet side - although the bitterness fought through at times. Solid and tasty. 14 rxeight (3334) - Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2016
