Pailhead (6322) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap:The aroma consists of mild cocoa, roast, coffee, and a hint of burnt notes. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and two finger khaki head that has great retention before eventually fading to a thick film. There is some spotty webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cocoa/chocolate. There’s some light roasted malt in the middle. The finish has some light burnt coffee. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

came out ruby black with nice head and lacing. i’m excited to try something here with a little more to it but i guess this isn’t my day. roast on aroma and taste, thin and dry were the lasting impressions. i guess they’re content in brewing safe brew to appeal to the masses but i really wish they would have some fun.

Black with light brown head. Not bad. Lots of roasted malt taste. Smooth. I guess this is the best of their beers. Still not too good.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Tap at Maple Grove. Pours a creamy opaque black with a very creamy off-white head which lingers and leaves good lacing. Rather weak aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is a bit thin with roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and very dry. Body is quite creamy almost fluffy. Decent.

Tasted on tap at brewpub, St Louis, Missouri, USA in standard pint glass. Opaque black color with thick, creamy beige head. Some head retention, little lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors. Balanced hops bitterness. Dark and thick. Fruity ale fermentation. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty but unmemorable.
