Had this at Burdick's in The Radisson in Kalamzoo. This is definitely among the best stouts I've ever had, and I've sampled a couple dozen this year. I'm mostly into the taste and this is definitely world-class! It has really good coffee, chocolate and roasty notes - well balanced (and this is coming from someone who doesn't really like coffee).

Easily the go to stout here in the midwest. Wish it was available all year but might be hard to stomach regularly through the summer as this is pretty close to a full-meal beer.

A: Jet black with a nice dark head that dissipates quickly leaving just enough lacing around the edges.

S: Very heavy barley smell with cocoa, coffee, caramel notes.

T: This year, 2012, is smoother than previous years. Almost to the point where the 8.3% ABV is muted making it a dangerous delicacy. The taste profile is wonderfully balanced between a cocoa and a coffee stout (although coffee comes through a little bit more). Mild hop aftertaste that matches well with a very subtle and slight alcohol bite.
