At the brewery in Ann Arbor, this beer is a chocolaty Porter with decent flavor and a little barbeque sauce. Its solid but nothing to write home about.

On tap in ann arbor. Smooth and smoky. Sweet aroma, not hoppy. Definite hint of bbq sauce. Easy to drink with a burger, but can be a touch cloying. Unique, and worth a try on a warm day.
