Pours cloudy with some floaties. I think I got some of sediment from the bottle in the glass - there was a ton of this in the bottle. Foam was a rich brown but had minimal, at best, retention. Lacing, are you kidding.
Aroma lets you know that it is a stout. Roasted malt, some chocolate and even a nugget of coffee. I expected some fudge, but no.
Taste is pretty straight forward. Roasted malt and chocolate dominate. The chocolate does add a sense of bitterness. Coffee comes late and lingers in the back of the mouth.
Body is thin as is the carbonation. I guess the carbonation might be a bit more, but not much.
I was expecting some big things from this beer. I wanted some fudge, especially from Mackinac, as it is some awesome goodness on that island. The beer isn't horrible, it is just awfully thin for a stout. The aroma and flavor you could say are there, the body is a let down. One was enough. Enjoy!
