Though a little smudged, I'm reading the date as "09/22/2014" I think.
Well, anyways, I had this poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking motor oil black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within a nice thirty seconds. Light lacing graces the glass nicely at the lower end of the snifter.
The smell had a super nice coffee aroma with a superb roasty cocoa to light coffee bean-esque sort of awesomeness.
The taste was roasty to sweet with a nice coffee to chocolate goodness leaving a light sticky sweet to moderate great feel rolling over my tongue.
The mouthfeel sat about a medium bodied with a nice sipping quality about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth.
Overall, I'd say this was a really good breakfast stout that I got as a Christmas present. It makes me wanna move to Michigan to partake in more of this stellar brew and possibly more of this company.

Pours pitch black with dark brown head. Smell is of rich dark coffee with cacao nibs. First taste is of fresh brewed coffee with slight toffee overtones. The finish is silk and that's when the chocolate makes its appearance. Mouthfeel again is smooth and carbonation is slight but very nice. Overall job well done, my favorite stout by far. Bought at local price chopper supermarket for $10.99 for a growler. WELL DONE!

Pours pitch black with a small, brown head. Head retention and lacing are not that prevalent. Surprising. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Very strong. Roasted malt taste, followed by a spicy coffee flavor, ending in a nice smooth, chocolate aftertaste. Bitter feel at the end. Excellent beer. Very well layered.
