These Sands were Singing! This is a good stout. Not many mirco-brews can pull off a good stout....Shoreline did quite well!!! Hat's off! The color was a deepr dark amber...basically opaque with an ecru head. The roasty aroma carried hints of sweet choclate. The taste mirrored the smell...coffee/roast with subtle sweetness from a chocolate add. The mouthfeel was good...had a very nice boday and was very well balanced. I could have a few of these....no question!

Just got this one at Shoreline. Beautiful black brown color with a mesmerizing falling carbonation look. Had a 1/4" creamy off-white head that went down to a thin film that held on for the duration. Loads of lacing. Smells like coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee and bitter chocolate (no sweetness) and malt. No noticeable carbonation and a bit of a slick mouthfeel; typical stout. This beats the crap out of a Guinness.

Served in a 16oz pint glass at Shoreline 11/11/07. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist (and the driving!)

A: Served a deep dark shade of pitch black with tan head of pure cream.

S: I detected a roasted grain and chocolate aroma but I feel this was served way too cold and frankly it smelled, well, cold (if that makes any sense). As it warmed, more of the subtle nuances of this stout became more aparent. More chocolate and more roasted malt, for sure.

T: See above. Served way too cold and it benefited greatly from a warm up session.

M: I found this to be a bit on the thin side but as it warmed it began to feel thicker, fuller, and creamier on the tongue.

D: This sucker needs to come up to temp before consuming but when it does, look out! Very sessionable.

The name of this one is a reference to the sand dunes found locally along the south shore of Lake Michigan.

Singing Sands was nearly black in color, with faint garnet highlights along the edge. The head was a creamy camel colored tight frothy foam that sat tall in the glass. The lacing was a real treat for the eyes, thick and inviting.
The smell was sweet malts, caramel, molasses, toasty and a mild grassiness from the hops.
The taste began slightly sweet with rich caramel followed by unsweetened cocoa, and a roasted and toasty character. There was a pleasant moderate bitterness which helped this one to finish in perfect balance.
The mouthfeel was a combination of silky and creamy helped along by light carbonation and a medium-heavy body.
I have only tried a few of Shoreline’s beers, but so far this is my favorite. This one is very well craft and truly a pleasure to drink.

On-tap at the brewery

Aroma: Wet grains, a touch of roasted bitterness, not much else.

Appearance: Dense black with ruby edging. A cream soda white head.

Flavor: Wet grains, cocoa, a touch of roastiness. Pretty one dimensional on the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium and a touch creamy. Medium carbonation.

Overall impression: Decent and worth a try. Very approachable to the non-beer lover. Would pair well with some dark chocolate.
