Flossmoor Station Collaborative Evil 2010
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickeyís on December 01. 22 oz bottle, 2010 vintage. The pour is a thin clear reddish brown color with a thick off white head that leaves a lot of soapy lace as it falls down to a thin ring. The aroma is just awful. There is so much smoke, which I hate anyways, but itís just wet cardboard and heavy oxidation. The flavor is much of the same. Heavy smoke, wet cardboard, light dark fruits, but I canít hardly drink it. The mouth feel is slick and watery with a sharper carbonation and a lingeringly smoky and cardboard dominance. Not my jam at all.

Flossmoor Station Barrel Aged Collaborative Evil 2010
From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickeyís 30th birthday bash on November 05. 22 oz bottle. 2010 vintage. The pour is a thin and dirty light brown with a light tan head and no lace as it falls down. This thing is smoky as hell. Damn. There is a light roastiness to it, but the smoke and peat really just ruin it for me. The flavor is much of the same. Light earthy malt and a strong smokiness just control it. The peat is bitter and heavy. This is not enjoyable at all. The mouth feel is thin and slick with hardly any carbonation and a lingeringly smoke dominated finish. Ugh. Smoked beers are not my thing!

Flossmoor Station Hi-Fi Rye Wine
2014 bottle thanks to TheAlum! Pours hazy hazel, small off-white head, dissipates leaving decent residual and lacing. Aroma is rich and malty, dark sugars and pumpernickle bread. Flavor is pretty sweet, light bitterness and a bit of a bite from the rye, toffee, dark bread, hints of smoke. Medium plus body, smooth mouthfeel. Pretty solid barleywine. I can see why this ages well in bourbon barrels.

Flossmoor Station Pullman Nut Brown
My first time drinking anything from this brewery. Iím surprised to see how many beers they have produced and yet Iím just now learning of this brewery in my home state! Poured from a pint can which did not say NUT brown however all other facts are the same. Pour is so black light canít penetrate it...has a huge long lasting tan head which is beautiful and thick. The head dissipates slowly and the glass of beer left behind has amazingly so the lowest amount of carbonation Iíve ever experienced. Itís smooth and a tad sweet but I do not get the nut flavor. No doubt the dark color and the slight sweetness is from the black strap.
