A roasty, dry stout made with real fudge for a subtle chocolate-fudge character without being sweet. Top with whipped cream for a special treat!

We first visited Mackinac Island in spring of 2008 and were instantly smitten. So we couldnít have been more excited when we were asked to brew a signature Mackinac Island Fudge Stout.

This rich and satisfying beer was inspired by long summer afternoons and lazy weekends spent on the Island. But just like summer on the Island, itíll be gone before you know it, so drink it up while itís here!

Pours black with more carbonation than expected. Aroma of heavy chocolate. Flavor is extremly dry without much flavor. Stale cocoa aftertaste and slight hop bite. More of a summer stout I guess, but just not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with an off white. Malty and chocolate aroma. Roasty and chcoolatey, decent, but not overly good.

Bottle. Pours dark brown... Aromas of roasty malt and lovely dark chocolate with a little twang. Flavor is a decent stout with a slight infection and sour edge. Again... Arbor needs quality control.

12oz bottle picked up out there. Poured muddy brown with a head that disappears almost instantly. This has a nice choocolate character once tasted but a relatively mild nose and a bit of alcohol heat and sticky sweetness that also take it down a notch. The fudge was barely noticable.

Pours fudge black with no head. The aroma, which I found to be the best part of the beer is the smell when you first enter a fudge store on Mackinac. The almost clinical sweetness with very light chocolate. This is the beginning and end to the fun. The taste does not create the same excitement. Less bold, less exciting, less memorable. Begins with a bland chocolate and ends a bit sour with a mouth feel too thin for the color or occasion.

Pours a dark brown, almost black, with medium tan head, decent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, moderate chocolate, and sweetness. Flavor matches well, but definitely needed a bit more chocolate in order to carry the Mackinac Island Fudge name.

On draft. Pours a very dark black color with a small amount of beige head. Faint aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is light sweetness mixed with bitter chocolate and overpowering roasted malt. Has a burnt flavor. Very thin mouthfeel and not much chocolate comes through for a beer with fudge in the title. Finish is smooth but leaves an odd flavor. Not a fan at all. It was hard to finish the pint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Fairly thin black pour with some head but no retention. Nose of roasted malt and coffee. Taste follows the nose and is rather eh. Where is the chocolate? Can't call this fudge stout and have no chocolate slapping you in the face. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle as an extra from ? - I cannot remember. I drank this while walking my dog so look to the other reviews for appearance. The aroma from the bottle was light coffee bitterness, subtle chocolate, perhaps some roast, and an odd, bland note through the finish. Taste was not as good as the aroma and presented with a light mix of minimal coffee bitterness, maybe some sweeter malt notes, and a bland, seemingly tastless finish. Mouthfeel was light and watery. I did not really like this beer much and I would not recommend it for drinking while walking your dog.
