Very nice dark beer. Deep brown color with a suprisingly small head. Deep flavor with molasses finish.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
