Flossmoor Station

A pint of Obama-brau was set in front of me at the bar with a creamy bone white head atop a walnut brown body. Ruby highlights jumped throughout the body as this was one of the lighter shades of brown. The head settled to a solid cap rather quickly but left some excellent sheet lacing down the glass.

The nose was what you would expect in a freshly brewed brown ale with a twist of interesting spiciness that I'm assuming comes from the hopping. Moderately toasted grains and freshly spent coffee grounds jump from the glass while undercurrents of light cream and nutmeg flow through the back. The faint nutmeg adds a nice depth that I wouldn't have expected.

The flavor followed the nose closely. Toasted grains, some of which lean toward heavily toasted, start things off and flow throughout. Spent coffee grounds bring up the rear with a roasty bitterness that toes the line of being just right and too much. There's also mild hop bitterness on the finish but the coffee grounds seem to overtake it. This is a solid brown ale.

As this beer moves across the tongue I get a slightly prickly carbonation that pushes the body through rather quickly. The body is medium and has a bit of a dry finish.

This is an easy beer to put away but one was enough for me with the other offerings on the menu.

This is a good beer but I when Pullman Brown is on the menu that's the one I will be reaching for, it is nice to see another good brown though because I haven't found many.
