UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 Nitro tap at the brewery. Should this be a new beer entry? Pours pitch black with a 2 finger thick, creamy head that leaves chunky lacing when it fades. Aroma is very roasty and nutty with some light burnt wood and ashy notes. Taste is really good. Very dense and creamy. Dark roasted coffee, peanuts, burnt wood and very light chocolate. Light sweetness up front and a moderately bitter finish. Medium to thick body, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Really good nitro stout. Re-rate 10/22/14 - Iím leaving my rating the same because I really remember this beer being great off of the nitro tap. Had it a couple times since, both on tap and in the bottle, and itís not as good. Itís not terrible but itís also not memorable. Probably in the 3.4 range.

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!

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!

on draft at the brewpub. Finally! A craft stout thatís *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 itís 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.

From notes. Finally getting around to adding beers from the Detroit Zoo Brew! Enjoyed on September 26. The pour is a nice dark brown, almost black, with a off white medium head that fallc down to a ring. The aroma is incredibly roasty. There is a strong chocolate presence and a lot of malt throughout the nose. The flavor is just as youíd expect. A lot of roast, some bitterness as if there is a little coffee there, and some strong cocoa. The malts are probably more powerful than any stout Iíve had in a while. The mouth feel is definitely thin, The carbonation does a nice job helping it feel more velvety than it should. The aftertaste is dry and lingeringly bitter, like a cross of roasted malt and spent coffee.

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.

It took me an hour to pour this beer, then another hour shaking it around a bunch to get the carbonation down to a manageable level to be able to drink. Waaaaay overcorbonated in my opinion. The beer itself is sort of a no-frills dry stout. Roasty malt, if you smell hard enough thereís a hop... Yeah. Not so impressed with this one... Which is sad because I really wanted to like this brewery.

A decent stout, with a distinct flavor has something different to give it a bite of bitter along with some sweet malts

Boy I this a foreign beer... When I first opened it and poured it into a bottle, I poured about an ounce of it and it foamed up the rest of the glass. This is the most carbonated beer Iíve ever had. It took me about a half an hour to pour because it kept foaming up ridiculously. I even poured it as soft as I could but that didnít help at all. By time I got to taste it, it was basically warm. It doesnít really taste like anything either... Maybe a tiny bit of chocolate stout and a fuck load of CO2... I only got this beer because I wanted something from liberty Street since I might move close to them, but I donít think Iíll ever get this beer gain...

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.
