On tap at Petes Place. Pours a very dark brown with a light light mocha colored head. Thick fluffy smooth head. Heavy lacing. An interesting aroma of coffee and bitter hoppiness. A nice hoppy bitterness with grassy pine and grapefruit. A coffee backtone and a dry finish. Very interesting. Wolverine is always a treat. Good stuff. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 Sample draft at the brewery. Pours black with a small foamy head, leaves awesome webbing. Aroma is awesome, pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, burnt toast and light cocoa. Drinks like an ultra thin black IPA. Nice fresh hops with a thin black lager base. Normally I would take points off for being so thin but this was so easy to drink and delicious I will let it go. I grabbed a growler of it to go. Re-rate 2/11/15 - This new batch is very different. It’s no longer thin, it’s medium bodied. The Strong pine taste from before is a lot lighter. More chocolate and roast. It’s listed lighter at 5.4% but actually tastes strong and more intense. I like the older version much better. I’d rate this new batch at around 3.7 or so. I’ll leave my rate where it is since I had it several times and stand by that great batch. Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a near black with an off white head. Slight citrus hop aroma but coffee comes though big. Roasty taste. Light mouthfeel. deyholla (12289) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a nice combination of dark bread and pine hoppiness with a hint of grapefruit. Flavor has even more of the pine/grass hops with a backing dark bread note. Drinks nicely.
