First I must admit I am originally from Michigan, and second I like Stout...not that it would bias my rating.
Sort of a thick pour, like used motor oil into my glass, resulting in a two finger head of moderately dense foam of light brown color. Lace is somewhat clingy. Color is a 30 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is intriguing, with aromas of licorice, currant, honey, coffee, coco, and lemon peel. The taste, well was not quite a full and robust as I thought it would be, lots of flavor, but not so intense to knock my shoes off. There are flavors of coffee, coco, anise, molasses, charred oak, celery, grapefruit/lemon/pine, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and has some pop from the carbonation. A bit of drying/stickiness on the sides of my tongue and back of my soft palate. Yes I would like to drink some more of this brew, but I got the last bottle and being at the end of the supply chain, I can only dream.

12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a small mocha head that reduced to a small layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, smoke, earthy, roasted coffee.
Taste: Toffee and caramel up front with milk chocolate ash, roasted coffee, earthy, and bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and a little ashy bitterness.
Overall: Solid stout from Michigan. This brewery puts out some stellar beers.
