Marshall, Michigan. I would like to spend a few days there, drinking Dark Horse beer. The only think better than Dark Horse beer is the extraordinary fountain in the centre of town. It's a small town, under 6,000 people. So, it's pretty good that they have at least two extraordinary things there.
I was there last August and spent less than an hour. Picked up a bunch of beer and this is one of the last, a 7.5% black beer. I'd call it a stout but what do I know. Very nice. Dark chocolate coloured ale under a mocha rim. In the mouth, plenty of dry cocoa powder and date enriched to short of the point of licorice but you can see the licorice from here. And an attractive rich consistency like the cocoa powder hasn't completely dissolved. The integration of the hops adds to the dark chocolate effect, a slightly mentholated effect. I would love to have this with BBQ.
