Oatmeal and 20 pounds of fresh roasted coffee from the Ugly Mug Cafe contribute to a mildly chalky espresso character balanced by a rich, sweet, creamy maltiness. coffee finish dissolves into chocolate with a slight roasty bitterness. Brewed with 100% fair-trade coffee from the Ugly Mug Café and Roastery in Ypsilanti, MI. Pairs well with desserts, especially dark chocolate, raspberries, and cheesecake.

Thanks dra19. The color was dark chocolate. The head was thick, fizzy, and medium tan. The aroma was coffee malt, roast, citris, sweet malt, and chocolate. The flavor was coffee, citris, tart, and roast. The palate was average. The finish was clean.

Thanks dra19. Pours a dark thin brew with a profuse creamy tan head. Acted bottle conditioned. The head broke down incredibly easily. The aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate, swirling releases a lot of carbonation. The flavor is smooth, roasty, kind of sour, coffee, a bit thin in the mouth, sweet, has some interesting qualities. The palate is a bit thin and very carbonated. Interesting brew, I enjoyed it.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bitter sour thin flat still coffe-laden liquid resembling beer. Aroma is all coffee that’s been laying on the heating element too long. Unfortunately not good.

wow. lots of carbonation in this bottle. maybe shouldve sat even longer. ive had it in the cellar for 2 months. a mild coffee scent. pour even looked a little watery. taste is also a little watery compared to others. nice dark color however. pretty good, wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again.

Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a very small tan head. Aroma, roasty, coffee, chocolate, earthy. Flavor, roasted coffee notes, some chocolate, dry roasty finish. There is some buttery notes, it’s on the thin side as well.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Dark brown body with ruddy highlights at the edges, thin tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malts. Rather dry, plain body of coffee beans. Soft, rather thin. Light sweetness. Seems everyone has picked up on the "Breakfast Stout" theme, but Founders reigns supreme (and, I admit, I’m biased).
