Flossmoor Station Lighten Up Hefe
On tap at Chicago Beer Society's annual picnic, and self-dispensed to plastic showing a hazed, light orangey gold color, with some soft white foam, and minimal lacing. The nose was soft grain/wheat, slight citrus, circus peanut-like banana, and subtle, clovey phenols. Ditto on the flavor, light+ bodied, with fair carbonation, and a thinning texture. Spot on name as a fair, sessionable Hefe.

Flossmoor Station Slump Buster English-Style Dark Mild Ale
(From an old notebook) Mostly clear, rusty brown body under a creamy, long-lasting cream-colored head. Aroma of a Whopper malted milk ball (pale malt, milk chocolate, caramel). Pleasant flavor of malts, a little thin on the palate. Mild wash of sour milk in the finish but the dominant linger is chocolaty. Draught at FSRB, dated 28 Sept. 2010.

Flossmoor Station Hattentot Hefeweizen
(From an old notebook) Mid-golden/amber, highly carbonated under a creamy, sand-colored head. Spicy nose with abundant clove & cardamom and yeasty banana notes. Tart, yeasty flavor with a large amount of cloven spiciness. Dry & chalky on the tongue, mildly astringent, low alcohol notes late. Very good. Draught off jockey-box at FSRB circa 2009.

Flossmoor Station Munich Winterbock
(From an old notebook) Dark brown body topped with a yellowish-tan film. Dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Flavor is unrefined with a sugar-grittiness before bittersweet chocolate, ending with a coffee-like bitterness. OK, but the sugary cloy is a bit much. Draught off jockey-box at FSRB circa 2009.

Bottle via trade, thanks Kevin! Pours a translucent mahogany with deep copper and amber hues. Medium carbonation pushes a thin off-white head. Fine lacing. Looks clean. Aromas of toffee, vanilla, caramel , brown sugar and a light oaky bourbon. Whoa. I’m not a big Barley Wine fan, admittedly...so when one impresses me, it stands out. The balance here is nearly perfect. The barrel inflection is spot on. The body is medium and far from chewy, but masks the alcohol completely. Lightly sweet with hints of raisins, big toffee, vanilla and brown sugar. Very fresh and clean grain notes. The hops are extremely fresh too. Moderate dry bite. Just a delicate body with everything popping. So glad to have had this fresh! I’ll take this over some of the booze bombs I’ve had, anyday. Extremely impressed with this beer!

650 mL bottle. Batch 1, the re-release made me realize I’d never put this one in. Originally reviewed 7/2/2014. Deep murky reddish brown body. Small welling of khaki bubbles. A very thin collar. Smells little oxidized. Kinda cardboardy. Bourbon. Brown sugar. Boozy. Taste has a better bourbon flavor. Better all around. Still a little cardboardy and oxidized. Some dark fruits to it, too. Lots of brown sugar. Woody finish. Almost spicy finish. Medium carbonation. Oxidized in the back end. Boozy. So this is getting old. The oxidation is becoming overwhelming.

Rating #3000 and first for the return of the legend. Murky brown, with a slight red hue. Aroma is molasses, oak, brown sugar. Taste is molasses, hard ribbon candy, oak, very light bourbon. Grassy hops on the finish. Great to see this finally make a return, although now this is just a really solid barlewine. 11 years ago this would have been mind blowing.

Flossmoor Station Pullman Nut Brown
Appearance: Holey moley! I’m pouring foam into my glass not beer! Every time i pour, it comes out foam with very little body. The light brown head looks gorgeous though all frothy and whipped. My wife says it looks like a root beer float. After several minutes i eventually see the opaque dark brown body. Though off-putting a little, it looks really nice once it settles down. Smell: Molasses, chocolate and brown sugar. Nice bitter edge to it. Taste & Mouthfeel: Combining these together because the carbonation is way out of hand on this one. I get a little bit of molasses but the carbonation is literally hurting my tongue. I let calm down for awhile and try again. Carbonation is still high but i do get some coarse chocolate and burnt sugar. Other than that, nothing and not quite pleasant i must say. Drinkability: Not really. My wife couldn’t continue after a few sips but i tried to give it a chance but i couldn’t finish my glass. The astringent taste and overly excessive carbonation kills it for me.

Flossmoor Station Collaborative Evil 2010
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickey’s 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 it’s just wet cardboard and heavy oxidation. The flavor is much of the same. Heavy smoke, wet cardboard, light dark fruits, but I can’t 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.

From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickey’s 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 Barrel Aged Thundersnow Russian Imperial Stout
Bottle shared on the bus during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours oily black-brown with a creamy topping. Quite hot, with big whisky character, raw alcohol, torched wood, earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with nips of chocolate, more raw alcohol, drying ashy notes. Not very graceful.

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.

Bottle, 2014 with thanks to theAlum! Pours clear hazel, minimal head, wisp of residual and lacing. Aroma is loads of bourbon, oaky, dark sugars, vanilla, almond. Flavor is fairly sweet, light plus bitter, really nicely harmonized, kind of tending towards a Hair of the Dog BA beer, but with less complexity. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Quality stuff.
