A fine companion to end a meal or relax in front of the hearth with, this robust ale will cellar well for years. Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley this stout is extremely smooth, complex and rich in body. We recommend serving at cellar temperature. Sit back and enjoy its richness and complexity, youíre about to drink the ultimate winter warmer.

It pours a dark motor oil, with a dark brown head. Iím going to quote Battlekow, "It doesnt make sense to have this beer if itís not a regular rotational offering" I agree, Breakfast Stout is 2 times as good, but itís offered the same amount of the time. Granted this beer is awsome, full of chocolate, coffee, and caramel malts. But itís tepid in comparison and there is no dark fruits at all. For what it is, itís damn good, just not marketed properly.

Thanks to Chuck for the sample. Has a nice roasty malt aroma. Very dark, pours almost like motor oil. Has a nice roasty flavor, quite enjoyable. Thick body, with good carbonation. Overall, this is quite good.

black pour w/ a full thick brown head and some great lacing. Big roast aroma touches of hop hints of tobacco hints of alcohol, light coffee. Palate is full well coated and lightly creamy. Flavor is full and roasty some chocolates a light bitterness that lingers.

Poured a super thick like used motor oil. Bitter roasted coffee nose. Fairly good. A slightly metallic, bitter flavor. Not much in the way of malts, but a little bit roasted. Nicely smooth palate. Perhaps the best thing going for it. Sip it.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2006 Nice representation of good michigan stouts. Body is a dark black color (bordering on a very dark brown), with a nice dark tan head, almost looks like the foam you would get off a thick milk shake. Aroma has a stong coffee sent, with some hints of vanillia and nuts. This beer is a tad bitter at first taste but has a nice cream/malty flavour, with hints of chocolate. This beer leaves a very slight mocha flavour, which brings me back every time.

Bottle courtesy of Styles, thanks! Another pitch black impy from MI- Dark, dark opaque black, with a good initial froth of mocha head, receeding down to a thin ring, lots of lacing too. Bloody insane aroma, like, itís really huge. Anise, dark rum, dark chocolate, bourbon, raisins, burnt molasses, tobacco. It goes on and on. And the body is big too. A punch of roasted coffee beans, with huge boozey dark chocolate. Burnt brown sugars, and throw in a touch of hops bitterness. Though itís big, itís 12% seems closer to maybe 8%. Itís still a sipper, and one of the best Iíve ever had. A ramped up version of the breakfast stout, minus the crazy booze of the Kentucky Bourbon. Incredible. Thanks so much Chris for another "stylin" brew!

Pours opaque black; brown at the very edges and in the head. Aroma of raisins, bourbon, chocolate. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma led me to believe; very nicely balanced with a coffee/smoky/bitter finish. I liked this one a lot!

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle: Black pour, heavy dark tan head. Aroma has some vanilla, a bit roasty. Flavor some chocolate at first and then a nutty kick, that fades to a nice roasted bitterness. Some warming at the back of the throat, nice thick mouthfeel. And some spotty lacing on the glass. Very enjoyable.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer has a hearty aroma of coffee, vanilla, caramel, smoke, and nuts. It is black with a thick dark brown head that dissolves slowly leaving heavy lacing in its wake. The taste is a bitter smoked coffee taste with hints of vanilla. The taste of coffee lingers well after swallowing.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Pours a deep black with a frothy reddish tan head that has no real staying power. Nose has a freaky raspberry fruity kind of tartness and some heavy roasted malts. Flavor is dense and at first sweet, then a luscious wave of rich black chocolate coats the tongue with a lavish bitterness. Very thick beer, tasty and substantial.
