12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass. Pours dark brown, almost black with a average size light brown fizzy head that shrinks a little but leaving fair lacing. The aroma is of molasses also with a metallic aroma. Taking a drink the flavor is of molasses up front, followed by a slight metallic taste which leads up to a slightly bitter finish in the end. The body is light to medium with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall I am not to impressed. The flavor is real nice, but once you get the metallic finish it is not to enjoyable.

Very nice dark beer. Deep brown color with a suprisingly small head. Deep flavor with molasses finish. tbarnette (105) - Allen Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2005
A very good dark. I wish it was available at more than just the Bavarian Inn. I guess I will have to come back more often to enjoy this dark. BigNasty (55) - South Lyon, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2005
With the high quality of beers I’ve had from the Frankenmuth area, I was quite frankly disappointed with this. The aroma and appearance were OK at best, but the only flavor I got was burnt grain/strong coffee with a thin, watery mouthfeel. For flavors like that, I’ll stick to more nuanced and complex stouts that have a heavier feel on the tongue. Note: since Local Color closed, this beer is now brewed by Michigan Brewing Co. in Webberville. dwh50 (47) - Clay, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours very dark with very little head that disappears almost instantly. Deep roasted malt, slightly bitter with a hint of coffee. Alcohol is undetectable. Easy to drink, but thin in body. I do not expect bo buy it again.
