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!

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.

Draft. Black pour with an moderate frothy light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Solid sweet chocolate toasted malt flavor with a smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Soild stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 you’d 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 I’ve 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.

This beer has a very good flavor for a stout however it has almost no after taste. The flavor is hard to describe as it is very brief and disappears quickly. Would drink again

On tap at brewpub. Pours dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors rich chocolate, dry roasted malts, and a little bit of earthy bitterness. Nothing crazy but this is a solid tasting stout.

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