Take the bottle and pour it deep into the glass and when the last bubbles froth and foment at the festering fizz top shake the last drips of the bottle onto the surface of the beer. You'll see little bubbles shoot off the top and slide like electricity to the glass sides and die there. This really has nothing to do with this beer but it's something I've noticed from doing a few times now. All right...deep hued chocolate, coffee smoke, burnt wood and a mild sweetness in the taste dregs at the roof of your mouth. One of the best stouts and cream stouts I've ever had.

I'll have one of those, please. There are some good beers being brewed up there in Michigan, eh?

I guess so. Bell's, Founders, Jolly Pumpkin and a few others seem to rate pretty high on Beer Advocate. Must be all the fresh water and six months of winter and nothing to do but brew and drink.
