Bottle courtesy of trbeer, thanks!!! Let me start out by saying this is one of the best Michigan beers Ive had the privilege to enjoy, and I am a huge supporter of most MI breweries, albeit more from afar these days. The breakfast stout pours out a deep dark black molasses color, festooned with a thick and creamy dark brown head that looks like it could balance a dime. Aroma is heady and sweet, cocoa and coffee poking out amidst perfectly roasted malt.
Taste is very bold at first, with a surprising punch of hop bitterness at first, this seems to soften as the beer warms a bit. Quickly you are rolled along in a wave of rich, roasty, malty nirvana punctuated with a noticeable but pleasing nibble of alcoholic heat. Body is very full, without being thick. Super creamy and bold, but smooth as volcanic glass. Finish leaves you with the mouthwatering taste of dark chocolate and feeling like you just pounded a show of sweet espresso, and jonesing for more. A couple of these will get you through more than just breakfast ..what a beer. Id love to try the bourbon barrel version of this dark beauty.
