A= very dense dark brown with a slight gray hue, some pooling and lacing.

S= roasted malts, light hops florals, caramel toffee and molasses.

T= slightly dry up-front, nice oatmeal with toffee and molasses, nice hops florals and bitters balanced in the mix.

M= slightly dry, a nice dusty but only modestly bitter stout, balanced fresh green hops lingering with the molasses and toffee.

D= very drinkable, might go well with their Reuben sandwich.

A Three day old cask pulled through beer engine.

For a low abv beer this has quite a body to it. Not overly thick but creamy and broad. The smell is of oaty cookies and the taste is a little over sweet but it still has a good base of malt flavor. It is good drinking beer and easy to enjoy.

Reviewed from notes, 3/24/04 Michael Jackson Tasting @ R.F.D.'s

Appearance: Deep and dark with glints of toffee around the edge. two fingers of off white head slip down to a touch of sticky lacing.

Smell: Roasted

Taste: Just very roasty, roasted coffee, roasted malt, roasted barley, roasted bread. I don't know, just roasted.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly light for a beer with this flavor profile, bit of a bite on the finish.

Drinkability: I suppose I could, just not entirely sure I would want to.

Served in a sample cup at the Michael Jackson Beer Tasting held at RFD's.

Appearance: Dark, inky black topped by thick, stark ivory head. The foam recedes to a filmy layer of bubbles and a thick ring, leaving little fingers of lace on the plastic.

Smell: Aromas reminiscent of coffee and chocolate. Hints of vanilla. Some decent amounts of burnt malt, too.

Taste: Woody and grainy with a bitter black coffee and dark chocolate tastes. Overall, there's this oddly pretzel-like quality to the taste, but it's kind of intriguing.

Mouthfeel: Very light in body, oddly so... almost watery.

Drinkability: I grew more intrigued by this beer sip-by-sip. A pint would be welcome... a trip might be in order.
