on draft at the brewery. wow, this is better than i expected it. most small-time stouts are middle-of-the-road at best, usually falsely nitrogenated, and bland despite some roast. this is quite an enjoyable stout, however, and easily the better of the few brews i had at the Library.

Black Coloring with Tan Head Heavy Roasts on the Nose. Carried Through on the Tongue..Heavy Mouthfeel and Dry Aftertaste. Solid Malt in the Background. An All Out Fabulous Coffee Roast Malt.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Another glorious Michigan growler from CharlesDarwin! Huzzah! Black color with a very thin head. Mmmm... big coffee and roasted malts in the aroma. Woah! If they were milling for my nose, they amassed an army to fight my tastebuds! The coffee turns to espresso roasts in the flavor and heavily roasted malt borders on burnt without actually going there. A little smoke and wood, but that’s probably leftover from the malts. A damn fine stout. I just wish I didn’t have to share with my friends... 8/4/8/4/17

Re-rating, June 15, 2011. Yeah, this has changed. Black color with a small head. Light coffee aroma. Dark chocolate flavor. Chalky feel. A bit of molasses after warming.

Deep black tar pour with a deep rich frothy brown head, slightly diminished. Rich meaty savory aromas. EXTREMELY toasty flavors full of coffee, chocolate, burnt cherries and sweet pipe tobacco. Finishes dry, but smooth with a touch of hazlenuts. An extremely rich and astounding brew.
