tectactoe (1940) - Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Tap @ Liberty: Nearly black, some dark brown & ruby highlights at the edges; tan, fine-bubbled head perched nicely on top leaving spots of lacing on its way down. Aroma is very roasted, thick, malty - very robust. Light cocoa powder, faint fudge, a hint of milky sweetness, & even a very timid saltiness in the very back. Light hop presence, lending some herbal notes to the profile. Taste is heavily malty with a nice, smooth bitterness up front; burnt coffee beans, unsweet cocoa dust & cocoa nibs, aggressive roast.... More on the bitter-roasty side than the aroma would lead you to believe. Not much of that creamy sweetness I was getting. Lasting, spent coffee ground mouth coating in the aftertaste. Nice stout! I typically enjoy the roasted/bitter stouts more than most, so this was a pretty nice brew on all accounts.

JPDurden24 (1578) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
At the brewery, dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Roasty and dark chocolate aroma. Taste has a little sweetness touch with the dark chocolate roast. Good stuff!

flatmatt (1125) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a fluffy dark tan head. Aroma is very rich and creamy with lots of roasted character, coffee, cocoa. Flavor is also quite roasty and creamy with notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of dark fruit. Roasty finish with a touch of bitter hops. Excellent job!

jtw (1098) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2011
on draft at the brewpub. Finally! A craft stout that’s *not* on a nitro tap! Pleasnt aroma of roasted barley, some malt sweetness and a nice green cascade-like hops bitterness. Not strictly citrus and pine, so it must be a combination of hops but it’s very balanced. Light tan head with some nice sticky lacing stuck to the glass as its smooth medium-full body works its way empty (perhaps time for another?). Plenty of roast and charred wood in the finish and leaves a savory and slightly smoky taste on the palate. Quite a nice stout, hopefully something Liberty produces regularly.

bwa5879 (670) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Very explosive opening, overflowing beige head. Once cleaned up it settled to a dark brown to black. Cottony aroma of floral hops and smokey campfire malt. Fairly low carbonation, really foamy yet thin watery mouthfeel, finishes a little smokey but mostly clean. Bitter licorice and campfire roast flavor, burned smoked meat taste too. Thin flavor reminds me more of a porter. Too much carbonation, flavor is okay but everything else is flawed.

lukedarock (163) - Howell, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2014
A decent stout, with a distinct flavor has something different to give it a bite of bitter along with some sweet malts

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a sold dark, near black, with hints of mahogany red at the edge. Pillows of head form; off-white and persistent.. Initially at 2.5 inches., but settling to 1/8 inch. The nose suggests dark-roasted malts, cooked milk, and chocolate. Medium body, with nice lingering, although the body is lighter than expected for a stout. The palate suggests cacao nibs, malt and distinct bitter notes, with a very pleasant lingering. Belgian lace did form. Carbonation is pleasant and the ABV is not noticeable. Very pleasant and appealing, but not noticeably unique.

Corrinado711 (80) - - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with thin Tan head. Aroma of lactose, roasted malt, chocolate and bread. Taste is chocolate and malt at first with a surprising hoppy finish. Starts like a stout, finished like an ale with a light booze aftertaste . Nice balance though, Mouthfeel is light to medium.

Holy moley what a stout, this beer simply knocked my socks off. Makes it worth the drive out to Plymouth alone. Like most beers at Liberty it will mess you up if you don’t watch yourself. Winlose?
