Deep, mahogany red/brown body with thin but persistent, creamy head. Milk chocolate, mocha, and a slight bourbon nose in the aroma. Coconut, baker's chocolate, booze, and vanilla flavors. Heavy body with a smooth, velvety, thick mouthfeel.

A most impressive tasting stout. The flavors and feel really shine with big, robust character. The malt component creates a deliciously dark treat; sweetness and bitterness all nicely balanced. The relatively high alcohol content is noticeable but doesn't over-ride any of the malt and hop goodness while the bourbon barrel aging greatly adds to the overall character of the beer. Another fine Michigan beer offering...

Pours a dark brown, near black with a thick head. The smell was very sweet with both the malt and vanilla. There wasn't any real wood I could pick up on in the nose. The taste was very nice with vanilla, malt, and coffee and chocolate flavors being predominant. The bourbon wood came through in the finish with an oakey, slightly sweet flavor that I found delicious.
