    Beautiful dark pour with a thick, foamy head. Very rounded in color, with a deep dark color. Love the malty fullness of this stout, has a lot of caramel and chocolate notes.

    Big black-brown pour with a big tannish head and lots of tight lacing. Sweet aromas up front of toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses. Taste is creamy and smooth with a caramel sweetness from the malts and a touch of cocoa with little hops finish.

    Poured a dark brown to black with a tan head that quickly dissapated. There was minimal lacing, less than expected for a stout. The aroma was very nice, toasted malts and chocolate. The mouthfeel was a little thin and the flavor was a pretty good mixture of the toasted malt and chocolate with some bitterness.

    Pours black with a small tan head which quickly dissipates. Chocolate and coffee with a touch of burnt wood on the nose. Coffee and chocolate up front with roasted malt contributing to a long lingering bitter finish. A bit thin for a stout and certainly a session beer at 5% abv. I refer this beer as their their "pedestrian stout". If you like this try Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout and The Nightstalker, both big abv beers.

    Pours out in an almost black colour with a small tan-coloured foam. Rather clean aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and coffee. Medium-bodied with clean notes of dark coffee, cocoa, roasted malts and sweet licorice with grassy undertones. Medium-bitter dryish finish of dark chocolate, coffee and toasted malts.

    Pours black with a ruby highlight. 1" tan head quickly fades to surface foam, moderate lacing. Nose is sweet, toasty, chocolate and coffee, in that order. Oatmeal is evident in the taste, very sweet, very smooth, with just a little tang for balance. Substantial mouthfeel, medium body, very creamy going down the hatch. Finishes like it starts, a pleasantly sweet aftertaste. Overall, a very drinkable sweet stout. Just as I'd expect from Goose Island, a fine example of the style, not spectacular, but very solid, indeed.

    A dark black pour with a tan thick head. Aroma of chocolate and oats. Bitter flavor of coffee and chocolate. I really enjoyed this beer and will have it regularly on hand.

    Pleasently suprised by this one. This beer poured with a nice deep, dark black body topped off by a creamy light tan colored head that left thin lace. Aroma was sweet toasted malts and light chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, rich and very creamy. The flavor was roasted malts, milky chocolate, smoke and oatmeal.

    Dark black color, thick tan head with nice sheets of lacing. The nose has a lively coffee nose with a bit of milk chocolate note. The flavor is balanced, not too sweet nor roasty but blended well in each. The finish is balanced, thick body and mouthfeel with an overall satisfying molasses character. Nice.
