3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on tap at Keweenaw Brewery in Houghton, MI. Appearance was nice and dark (almost black) with a light beige head and eventual lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts with a slight fruity twinge. Taste was roasted malts - malty, coffee, slight chocolate - with a light to moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, not too bad but I think I prefer Point 2012 to this.

Very drinkable. But drinkable because it has no palate. No hints of anything.
On tap at Turks in Greenville,MI.

Nice and dark but smooth and easy to drink, even in the summer, even for those who don’t like dark beers.

Jet black in color with a brownish white head. Smells sweet and a little chocolate. First taste is sweet and smokey with a malty after taste. Really great beer to just drink.

Aroma is light roasted malt, metallic, nutty. Appearance is brown, light, light brown head. Taste is light roasted malt, metallic, nutty, not much else. Mouthfeel is light, somewhat thick carbonation, like oatmeal. Overall, meh. I didn’t expect much and didn’t get much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can to pint. Looks solid; a hazy darker brown with lighter beige head. Smells of dark malt with mild notes of toast and molasses. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Pours black, with an off-white almost grey head. Definitely not pitch black, almost has a ruby element in its color. Aroma is caramel malt, molasses, just malt for days. Roasted but not too much. Flavor is sweet caramel, molasses and a light toffee note. Solid example of the style. I kinda like it.
