I wrote on a scrap of paper "dark chocolate, plums, earthy, acrid, chewy, salty, rye bread, bittering" at Bells when I had this. Overall a very nice brew.

Deep brown in color showing ruby colors when light appears. Poured with very minimal head.

Roasty with chocolate and vanilla aromas. Hints of coffee and dark fruits lie behind the roasted malts. Very bready esters as well.

Rich, roasty but simple in character and complexity. Coffee, vanilla, black currant, dark bready grains, bakers chocolate, and some earth.

A bit thin in body and just missing something in the middle to make this a highly drinkable brew for me.

I was reluctant to try this at the Cafe because their mainstay porter is my least favorite Michigan porter, but I thoroughly enjoyed this offering.
