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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Purchased at Sicilianoís Market in Grand Rapids, MI, enjoyed at home on the first day of fall. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency. Aroma is very faint with light fudge. Taste is a bit odd, there is fudge in there but itís more of a watery stout, so watered fudge would be an accurate description for this brew. Not a fan.

Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was dryish with wood, chocolate and smoke. The flavor was dryish with smoke, roasty malts, cocoa powder and wood elements. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and fairly smooth. Disappointing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Inky darker brown. Fine ring of tiny tan bubbles.
Nose: Faint nose of cocoa and roasty malt
Taste: Faint taste of cocoa, vanilla and aspects of roasty malts
Body: Medium to thinner. Very light carbonation
Parting thoughts: Initial impression was this beer was flat. Iím not sure if this is a new thing. Iíve seen a few of these beers over the last couple months. If itís intentional, Iím not a fan.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head. Aromas are subtle: dark chocolate and dank yeasty esters. Flavors are chocolate, black licorice, vinous tones, cola and hints of paper. Somewhat sweet, but the winey flavors are a distraction. Somewhat oily mouthfeel.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and some cocoa. The taste is smooth with chocolate up front and then some roasted malts and a mild bitterness on the finish. Nice lacing on the glass.

Thanks Lorene! Pours a dark brown with a minimal head. Fudge and roasted malt aromas, flavor is a bit too sweet for me, but there is some bitter coffee. Falls into the average beer range. Iím not buyiní it, but if you are, Iíll have one.
