3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aromas of roasty coffee and some nuttiness. Flavors are similar, with nutty and roasty flavors incorporating a little cocoa and very light dark fruit. Better than a lot in this style.

On tap at the brewery, Frankenmuth. Medium to dark red-brown body, thin tight cream head. Nose of roasted malts, coffee, wood, and burnt sugars. Woody, acidic, dry body dominated by roasted barley and coffee. Nondescript; quaffable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub.
A lighter bodied stout. Golden amber with some creamy white head. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke. Dry and very malty on the palate with a light bitterness, along with some more smoke and coffee. Not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light black in color, clear, with a solid white head that hangs on well down to the bottom. Roasted barley and chocolate malt aroma. Light in body, creamy mouth feel, lasting finish. Dry and roasted in flavor with some slight sweetness from the chocolate malt. A nice dry stout, very similar to a Guinness Draught.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a black color with ruby highlights and a thin creamy light brown head. Mild aroma of coffee, the coffee is a bit stronger in the flavor but it’s still a weak, simple stout. The body is light with a dry texture and medium carbonation.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a semi-hazy no visible carbonation brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty. . The mild flavor contained thin weak notes of malt. Not one that I would buy again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Frankenmuth Brewery. Very small buttermilk head, beautiful lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a dark brown hue with some ruby. Nose was roasty, coffee and some chocolate. Flavor was coffee, roasty, burnt, thin, and watery. Very disappointing and blah. Mouthfeel was smooth and thin. Light-medium body. Texture was too thin and just didn’t live up to its style IMO.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Growler. Pours a dark brown color with very little head. Nose is roasty and chocolatey. Taste is very thin and watery. A light air of roast floats through your mouth above the liquid quickly racing over your tongue. A sour note catches this one in teh end with some lactose notes here and there and a sickly oil like finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty blah... it would be a great beer if you just wanted a tiny step up from guiness. It is fairly watery, but does warm nicely. This one gets distinctivly maltier, with more coffee touch when it is served not ice cold (as the brewery served it to me)
