12 oz can.
It pours a thick, dark black with a frothy tan head that is short-lived and leaves a bit of lacing.
The smell is moderately roasty with hints of caramel, cocoa, smoke, malt, and alcohol. The smell could be heavier though.
The flavor is decent. It has a noticeable roasty flavor along with some basic white sugar. It is noticeably thin though which detracts a lot from it.
Serving type: bottle

12oz can. Poured a deep brown color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and some smoke. Tastes of the same with some coffee. DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2011
This Wild Onion effectively pops my Wild (Onion) Cherry, and man, do I love cans these days (and not just your mother’s). The pour here is huge dark blackish brown with 2-finger frothy tan head. The nose is rich patent malt, roasty, cacao, hops, mild rauchy. Tastes creamy, black patent malty, late hoppy, with a medium palate, a smooth finish, and an overall uplifting character about it. Good.

Slight acidity. Moderate plus bitterness. Mild sweetness. Earthy / coffee flavor. Smooth finish. Pretty good. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2013

On tap pour at GLBF, dark brown with off white head. Aroma was thin, with some oat, roast, and a hint of chocolate. Thin on the palate, touch of oat and roasted malt, finishing a bit bitter and pretty weak. Not like the rest of the reviews, unless I had a bad sample...but really didn’t impress. blipp (9171) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Can. Pours near black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, light sweetness, and a hint of coffee and grains. Not bad. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2006
On tap at Goose Island Stoutfest. Nitro pour.. very deep brown with a cascading creamy beige head. Nose was of roasty chocolate, light coffee, and a little spiciness (possibly rye). Flavor picked up dry dark chocolate and coffee and was quite nice. Medium-bodied and smooth on the palate.. with a grainy feel at times. Bitter coffee finish. Tasty!
