I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Black in color with a fingers worth of dark tan head. fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee.

Taste- Roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa flavors with just a hint of licorice.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Very smooth and creamy with a slightly dry finish.

Overall- A great tasting stout. Not as big a licorice flavor as advertised but the other flavors were blended nicely.

Serving type: bottle

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.
