Draft at the 2012 Michigan Brewer’s Guild Winter Beer Festival, Grand Rapids. Sour with acetone funkiness; this can not be intentional. Just hideous, maybe this has improved.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MBGSF 12. Poured black color with an average fizzy brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and sweet chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where exceeded.
