3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can, stamp on the bottom says best before 11/21/15, 4-pack bought at Topsy Turvey’s on a recent trip to Put-in-Bay. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like milk chocolate, cream, roasted malt and some coffee. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, there’s a lot of milk chocolate/cream sweetness along with some coffee and burnt/roasty malt bitterness. It’s a bit creamy, slick, and easy enough to drink. There’s a good amount of carbonation in this. Not a bad brew at all, I’m glad I bought it. I won’t have any problems finishing the one can I have left!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light can’t penetrate this almost black pour,nice brown head fades fast. Aroma of chocolate, a hint of coffee. This tastes of cocoa and a coffee. Thick, creamy Southfield and a very smooth finish. Low ABV makes this very drinkable.
This was a souvenir from a Michigan weekend road trip. Shoulda’ bought some more, really enjoyed this one!
