Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Creamy frothy beer. Much like guiness but better. Really enjoyed it. Nothing special tho

On rap at Kedzie brewery. Pours an opaque black with creamy tan head and spots of lacing. I thought I detected the aroma of Vick’s Vapo-Rub at first, but it got much better. Aroma has licorice, chocolate, roasted malts and cream. Body is medium with very little carbonation. Mouthfeel is creamy with a slightly sweet taste. Not too complex, but a solid, asily drinkable stout.

Sampled at the brewpub. Black with a tan head. Nice thick lacing. A muted malty roasty, chocolate nose and flavor. Flavorful for a nitrogen stout.

poured from nitro-tap into a pint glass. Pours a medium chocolate color. Very well balanced with real nice aromas of chocolate, coffee grinds, and roasted malts. Not overly complex, but with good depth and every note hitting right Really nice medium/full feel. Smooth with balanced flavors of coffee and roasted malts. It’s lacking a slight bit in the middle and not that complex, but the flavors are still quite good A quality Irish Stout. This was the best stout on tap and it was also the lowest abv as well. Rev did a real damn good job on this one and hopefully it’s around for a while

crossovert (13908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2012
A pretty standard and generic dry stout. Only tried a 5 oz pour of it, it is okay.

3.9
HighWine (991) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Jet black pour with Adsense beige head consistent with the nitro version of the style. Sweet coffee and cream aroma and flavor. Hops balance out the sweetness nicely without taking over. Moderate mouthfeel. A good St. pattys day special.
