WOW! Thanks to Wohlfs for sending this!
Had I known this was going to be this good, I would have asked for a sixer!
I could have lingered over the aroma alone on this one for hours. Coffee, chocolate, rich roast malts all play together in a complex harmony that delights the nose. The flavor was as complex and satisfying as the aroma and was delivered with a full, smooth palate. I was expecting something over hyped, but this is a must seek out brew.
Michigan is for Stout lovers.

Motor oil thickness; black with a tan head. Choco-coffee nose. Sweet malts, with dark chocolate, roast and toast. Only a mild bitterness (I wanted more). Dark-roast coffee was very sharp and nice. Chewy, wholesome stout just bursting with chocolaty, earthy malts.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Bottled. Extremely black. Lots of everything in here. There’s massive coffee, molasses and salty licoricve. It’s very malty with dense, rich, creamy, almost oily mouthfeel. Lingering very bitter finish.

Poured as dark as the monolith in 2001: a space odyssey and it was one heck of a journey drinking this brew.
Aromas of coffee and chocolate are abundant. Small tan head.
Has wonderful fresh coffee hints with roasty sweetness initially, slowly changes to a chocolate slightly sweet finish. Super smooth all the way through with almost no hint of alcohol. This is one outstanding stout.

Black beer; thin creamy brown layer. Very nice coffeish aroma. Good coffee beer, with an expected malty sourness, good malt. Very good! Thanks Mads Berg for sharing this bottle.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled: Pitch black coloured. Has a dark dense brown headd. Oh my god. The aroma of this beer is out of this world. It start long before the glass is anywhere near the nose. Incredible. Coffee, chocolate, malt, roast and some sweetness. Like sniffing espresso. Flavour unfortunately dosn’t live up to the aroma, but still its good. Sweetness, roast, coffee and hops is present. Ends on a grassy, espresso note, that take over the palate for minutes. This is a totally espressoshock. I love it. Thanks to my Secret Santa BBB63 for this gem. I’m addicted. I need more!!

Yummy. Black, with a big brown head. Big espresso bean aroma. Nicely viscous palate. Some spicy, savory notes throughout, but a strong coffee flavor dominates. Hints of cocoa at the end. Remarkably smooth and ehjoyable, Hides its 8.3% alcohol really well. Thanks to Springslicker for sharing this one!
