I want to like Atwater as I am a huge fan of Michigan craft beers and Detroit has a small piece of my heart but I have just not had anything from Atwater that has gotten me excited. This beer is as dark as a stout, smells, tastes almost like a stout, I can hardly tell if this is even lagered. Will not be going for this one again.

The nose is a very light chocolate fudge, chocolate malt, barley, bran, some grain and maple syrup.

The flavor is a bit of coffee, chocolate malt, date, prune, barley, grain, a bit of pecan and brownie. It's very light though but it's never detracting.

This is 9.5% which is mind boggling. There's no evidence of booze but the flavor isn't strong enough to imply that much malt.

I found this beer to be slightly above expectations to start with, and it just kept better and better by the sip

Black pour with a small brown head. Light aroma has some nut and toasted malt. Flavor has roasted malt upfront without being bitter. Full bodied. Can also taste a bit of chocolate, coffee, bread, molasses and raisin. A light bitterness developed as the beer warms. Finishes with a mild sweet malt flavor.
