Draught sample at MBG 2006 Summer Festival. Dark brown with a nice creamy tan head - looks really nice for a festival sample. Aroma is roasty and a bit smoky, almost like a porter. Soft mouthfeel. Mellow flavour of roasted malt with notes of yeast and cocoa. Nice!
Michigan Brewers Festival 2006. Very dark brown body with a small creamy tan head. Grainy dark malt with a very light toasty roast and light mocha notes in the aroma. Dry yet sweet flavour, very muted roast and a schwarzbier like character. Average palate. Not much wheat character 6-7/3+/6/3/13-14
On tap: Nice roasty chocolate aroma iwth light coffee. Dark brown with some transparency and a big tan head that lasts a minute or so. Lots of chocolate with moderate roasted coffee. There is the slightest hint of wheat in the background. Very porter-like. Very nice.
