Goodbar beer club. Typical stout nose - nearly burnt malt, iodine/astringent, reasonably hoppy, maybe some cherry. Flavor is coffee, quite hoppy. Bitter cherry, random fruitiness, burnt cherry dry finish. Cut down on the astringency and this is wonderful.

draught. deep dark brown, nearing black body with a rather small tanned head. dry coffee roast in the aroma. the body is dry and roasty with a solid bitterness throughout. finishes with a slightly sour twang. fairly straightfoward and simple stout.

This is my favorite product from the M.B.C. It tastes just like Guinness, and it is made in my home state. I was very impressed!

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Pours black with creamy tan head, mostly lasting with some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is roasted, coffee, and a little chocolate. Finish is short and very dry. Very one-dimensional stout.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2005
On tap at MBC. Dark brown, opaque body, medium creamy light cream head leaving plenty of lacing. Dry roasted malt aroma that carried over and dominated the flavor, which also included a touch of chocolate but was otherwise quite dry and roasty. Medium-bodied and rich with a bit of acidity related to the roasted barley. A by-the-books stout that is well-made but doesnít distinguish itself from the pack.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Solid color with a tan head and some lacing to it. Solid coffee flavor in the rich malt. Nice long lasting aftertaste that I enjoy. I liked this and will certainly buy more next time Iím by the brewery.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Dark, creamy, nice roasted coffee and caramel flavors, great aroma. Found this to be of Guinness quality. Iíll have to remember this one, as it was an unexpected high-quality stout.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2003
Dark dark brown. Quick to go brown head. Roasted burnt aroma with hints of coffee. Bitter on the back of tougue. Slight creamy palate.
