Probably my favorite stout. Copious amounts of fresh coffee are used to brew the beer, to great affect. It's a coffee stout that actually will perilous up, perfect for a mid afternoon pint. You can find it in 16oz cans in just about any Michigan grocery store. For a 22oz bottle, check you're favorite beer store.

One of my all time favourite beers in general, I absolutely love coffee stouts. I taste a slight amount of chocolate as well. Dark brown, coffee smell, coffee stout taste, and a nice carbonated but not too carbonated mouthfeel.

Poured from growler into a standard pint glass
Dark black in color with two-inch tan head
Aroma-Dark roasted coffee and chocolate
Taste-I had the growler for over a week before opening, and it being the first one I've ever bought, I was a bit concerned about the carbonation. No worries mate! It poured frothy and true just like on tap. To me it seemed a little mellower than on tap-Still big, in-your-face coffee with dark chocolate notes, but not quite as bitter a finish.
Needless to say, I have no more growler anxiety, as the flavor and freshness was every bit as good as on tap!

Very strong coffee flavor, but I really enjoyed it. I described it to friends as "being punched in the mouth by Juan Valdez" because the coffee dominates, but as a coffee drinker I think it is nice.

Poured from a growler into a Murphy's pub glass.

Black as night with a ruby hue around the rim of the glass. Thick oatmeal head, good thick lace clings.

Smells of dark malts; patent, roast and chocolate. Bready freshness and coffee.

Taste is huge coffee and biscuit, bready chocolate and oatmeal dryness in the finish. This is quite a dynamic stout. This is a bit more mellowed from the staight on-tap I've sampled. Seems to have shifted shape for a week in the growler. Extremely gratifying and sessionable.

Drinkable. YES!
