Light but right, surprisingly silky for a rich dark stout. Smooth on the tongue, tasty in the aftermath.

Hey, a decent beer from Schmohz! This is cause for celebration! This is a deep black beer w/ a small head of fine white bubbles and little spots of lace. It smells mildly roasty w/ a bit of nutty, toasted malt. This is quite dry w/ a bitter coffee and chocolate-like taste. This not heavy on the palate but still full bodied w/ fine carbonation. It finishes clean w/ some lingering roast and firm bitterness. This reminds me somewhat of Founder’s Porter, which is a great beer. This is maybe not up to that level but far and away the best beer I’ve had from this brewery.

Bottle. The pour is black with a thick full head. The aroma is full of malt, robust. The taste is big malt. Hops are balanced, but a bit of bitterness. A solid stout.

Robust stout with lots of roasted malt bitterness, and little sweetness. Pitch black color with average head and rich body. Best that I have had from this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$5 (?) bottle from Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Appearance: A nice black color with a slight head on it. Opaque, with sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle after pouring.
Smell: Roast. Mostly coffee. Maybe some chocolate, but very little. Relatively one-note.
Taste/feel: Surprised at the 77 rating on this site, but I guess it’s because it almost just tastes like coffee. A bunch of roast, no noticeable hop presence, maybe a slight hint of chocolate? Reasonably bitter aftertaste. Body isn’t too thick, so you could drink a couple of these and be fine.
Not all that interesting, but it tastes pretty nice to me. I’d try it again.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle from HOrrocks in GR. Inky black brew with frothy tan head that leaves sticky lacking all over the inside of the glass. Great aroma of burnt grains, roasted grain, coffee... Taste is burnt grain at the start, a little sweet but quickly transitioning to dry coffee / chocolate taste. Bittering appears at the very end. Palate strikes a perfect balance between satisfying but not cloying. Overall an excellent brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice black with a thin, quick-fading darker tan head, and no lacing. The aroma is coffee and roast, not over bearing and what I'm looking for in a normal stout. There are hints of chocolate. The taste is roast heavy on the front end, that fades into the coffee and eventually into a dry chocolate finish. It's a little drier than I'd like, and leaves an aftertaste that would rival most dry cigars

Have you ever read a review that dogged a movie that you liked and you thought to yourself "what the hell was that person talking about"? Well that has happened to me with this beer. This beer should have a higher rating. This thing is unbelievably good. Open your book to the Table of Contents and look under MUST TRY’s , because it’s there.

Bottle. Oily black with a beige head. Vanilla and weird malt aroma. Thin. Ok.
