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.
