Draft Brewery 8/16/04-Pours dark brown almost black with a small head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste of the same but a bit thin for a stout. This medium bodied brew was not bad in flavor but just a bit thin.

tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a lingering light tan head. The aroma is primarily of chocolate malt with some notes of maple and caramel. While it smells good, unfortunately the flavor is weak and watery with a thin body. Itís certainly drinkable, but itís a letdown after the enjoyable aroma.

Deep brown-black pour with a rim of tan. Distant roasted beast and coffee aroma. A thin jaunt of coffee roast, beef crust and light molasses. Some restrained sweetness balances with the dry roasted character. Caramelized. Some leaching sweetness stays the bitter roasted character, but it still smacks peculiarly. A mediocre stout without any particularly intriguing character. Iím beginning to think that based on current and past ratings that the quality of the brewing at this place has fallen drastically in the past few years. These beers werenít flavorful or too thin, but they were a little dirty and the whole line up is hit or miss.

thought this tasted a little like band aides....oily, more of a sweet stout...roasty at the end...mouth feel off a bit

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2006
On tap at the brewpub/bar. Dark brown body, thin to medium off-white head. Nice, sweet chocolatey aroma with appropriate roastiness. Smooth, rather thin body, but velvety, with milk chocolate, roasted malts, and touches of sweet fruits. Quaffable and refreshing for a stout.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Thin liquidy black color with light lacing of off-white ivory color, very thin head was produced, dissolving like a puff a smoke in the wind. Smell is roasted malts, dark and earthy a bit, hard to get in the nose anything really. Taste makes up for it, nice drying stout taste the way it should be. Darkly roasted malts mostly with a touch of nut and nutskins and a nice little hop twinge late. Fresh and soild. Pretty full bodied and slightly rich, smooth and nice drying quality thats really easy going. Very nice stout, quite satisfying and enjoyable.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Appropriate for a UP brew to be named for an iron bearing mineral, but Iíd expect to see some reddish highlights given the name and this thing is as black as stouts come. Still, it does have a metallic tang to accompany its roasted complexities and while i find this bonus to be a bit unpleasant, it does lend more credence to the name.
