Business in Flint gave me a chance to do a “pubcrawl across Michigan.” Had to make this my first stop when I saw this beer was a 2003 GABF Gold Medalist.
Yes! Creamy and roasty, not oily at all. Despite a good coffee flavor, the taste is somehow “light.” Its dark stout head just seems to add to the chewy texture. Worth the trip to discover this roomy brewpub/restaurant. (Additionally: The pub lists this beer as having 30 IBU's).
Color is a great blackish brown. Aroma had some lactose and Malty nuts. A touch odd sweetness. Taste had a bitter mouth to balance the sweet. Not quite creamy but nice sweet combo. Mouth held the bitter and sugars together well. Tap Mark_Eck (1949) - - JUN 12, 2016
Draft. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts and some coffee, quite smooth. hopdog (12575) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2015
