dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2009
5oz sample at brewery. Pours a nice dark brown to almost black, thin tan head, no lacing. Aroma obvious of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and raisins. Flavor matches well and makes for a decent drink.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Had a pitcher of this on-tap for $10. After having the mediocre-at-best Pale Ale, I figured this would at least be better... and it was. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, along with a slight "twang" on the finish. Not of the highest quality, but it was still a pretty tasty, relatively thick stout. The highlight of the beer was probably the color and head -- the smell was also very pleasant. The taste, while having a thick mouthfeel with a good amount of coffee and chocolate flavors, wasn’t as "popping" as the majority of ones that I have had. Pretty forgettable, but much better than the pale ale and cream ale.

Strykzone (6722) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Almost black with red. A little tan foam. Aroasted and chocolate aroma. Flavor is also those with dark, more bitter chocolate. A little hop comes through. Citrusy and grasdy hops. A long lasting bitter after taste. Nice.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Deep opaque brown/black body, thick tight beige head with excellent lacing. Sweet coffee-and-cream nose with burnt sugars, caramel, and berries. Rich body with cocoa, coffee, caramel, and berries, sweet and incredibly silky, with modest roast and a bitter finish. Very little acidity. Incredibly quaffable, a real standout.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Not as roasted as I feel a stout should be. Watery mouthfeel.....flavors not that balanced...some roastyness, but more sweet than not.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Kind of watery style stout. Not that roasty. Has a watery-sweetness that is not very balanced. Was similar to the porter at the time I tried them. There are other beers make by them that are better.

On tap @ the brewpub in PH...Guinness style dry stout. A bit light on the palate, with very slight flavors of chocolate and roasted malts. Very average overall.
