COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let its looks deceive you. Though it may resemble a porter or a stout, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasant hint of molasses. Don't be afraid of the dark.

Pours a beautiful black with a creamy tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is malty, I cant put my finger on what else I taste but its good, no hops detected. Palate is medium bodied, very smooth. Overall this is a great beer, the best one Ive had from Keweenaw. Very smooth, very black, very good.

12 oz can. Pours brown with a fizzy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet cola-ey roasted malts.

The flavor is sweet dark fruits with a bit of a sour twang with a little grainy roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a cola like dark ale with a touch of sourness (infection?).

Dogbrick (12252) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2012
This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and slight hops. Light body with a slight vegetal character and flavors of toasted malt and a bit of earthy hops. The finish is short and leaves a overripe fruit aftertaste. Below average overall.

Served on tap at Keweenaw Brewery in Houghton, MI. Appearance was nice and dark (almost black) with a light beige head and eventual lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts with a slight fruity twinge. Taste was roasted malts - malty, coffee, slight chocolate - with a light to moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, not too bad but I think I prefer Point 2012 to this.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a dark black color with a small white head that quickly fades. Aroma is faint, light roasted malt, light chocolate, and cola. Taste is smooth but pretty bland. Slightly sweet, some roasted malt. Some metallic and cola characters make it weird. Highly carbonated makes the finish rather harsh. Thin body. Overall, a below average black ale but still ok to drink.

Pint at Ernies Irish Pub in Escanada, Mi. So glad to find this at a Bud Light bar. It poured a deep opaque brown and no head was seen. This beer was all about malts. Brewers grains, chocolate malts, maple, brown sugar were all tadted and worked together nicely. This was a p,easant surprise.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a fairly dense 1-2 finger light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some slight spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, raisin, toast, biscuit, herbal, and light coffee. Pretty nice and pleasant aromas with decent strength. Taste of roasted malt, toast, caramel, raisin, brady grains, and light chocolate. Pretty dry on the finish; with lingering notes of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, and toast on the finish for a short bit. Hardly any flavor presence as you drink; but the light flavors that are there are pretty balanced. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Overall this is a pretty decent black ale. There isnt much robustness in flavor; but it is very pleasant and easy to drink.
