The beer pours the color of dried apricots, with some clover honey. There is an inch of thick, foamy, somewhat ragged, white head. The aroma is full of citrus, oranges, tangerine, lime, along with some light passion fruit. The taste follows the aromas, tangy citrus, especially tangerine, over a crackery, biscuity malt. It drinks with a subtle carbonation, refreshing, zesty, quite bitter, like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.

This 6.1% ABV stout is made with ten different malts. It is from the Bell's Brewery in Comstock, Michigan.
The beer pours black in color, opaque, but with some dark brown around the edges when held to the light. There is a half-inch to inch of tan, creamy head. The aroma is dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, pleasant char. The taste follows the aromas, milky, creamy, bittersweet, dark roasted. The mouth is round and soft, but with a tingle of carbonation, sweet, but coming to a fairly bitter and dry finish. Wow, this is so good.
