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 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.

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6844) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
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.

Panzuriel (1962) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2016
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.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
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.
