COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let its looks deceive you. Though it may resemble a porter or a stout, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasant hint of molasses. Don't be afraid of the dark.

Toasted malt nose. More toasted malt on palate. Really thin on palate with not much else going on. Much better than their terrible pick axe beer

On tap at Bricks. Poured brown black with a thin film that was khaki. Aroma of malt and mild caramel and faint bitters. Taste was malt forward and watery with slight medicinal flavors. Palate was thin and dry.

bookman10 (662) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Pours a dark brown-black, with a bit of creamy, white head. Aroma of roasted grain and malt. Flavor was very roasty, with some chocolate and even some licorice for good measure. Good, but could be better.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2013
12oz can. The pour gives the appearance of a cola, both in color and the consistency of the head. Dry biscuit aroma with some hints of brown sugar. Light tones of chocolate and roasted malts in the flavor. Very light body with watery texture and average carbonation. Refreshing and easy drinking, just don’t go in with the anticipation of a complex beer and you’ll be fine.

Badass schwartbier. Nice smooth malty palate but just a delicious beer. On point for the style

Straight for a can at the Varsity Theater for the Divine Fits show. Was billed as the best from Keweenaw by the bartender to me and I tend to agree after having their 4 most popular. Dark and molasses.
