Draft. Light honey and chocolate malt aroma. Dark chestnut with small head. Sweet chocolate caramel and barley malt flavor. Strong herbal hops finish. Very tasty - wish they’d bottle this one.

Like smelling a handful of cocoa nibs. Very smooth and chocolatey. It’s like drinking chocolate ice cream. Seems a bit more stout than imperial but if they bottle this I guarantee I’ll have more than one of these in the house. Very well done.

Aroma is sweet hops, honeydew with some roasted malt. Appearance is black with a lightish brown head. Taste is sweet and hoppy, finishing like a stout. Mouthfeel is thick, soft carbonation. Overall, pretty good.

Intense chocolat noir, agrumes résineuse et une touche de tabac dans un corps riche mais accessible. La présence chocolatée est majeure.

Bottle at Savor. Kudos to Bells for bringing unique offerings to Savor. They never disappoint. This poured pitch black with roast, chocolate, and coffee aromas. Taste was more of the same, but sightly astringent and finished dry. Very enjoyable.

Savor 2014. Aroma of maple, chocolate. Medium light bitterness. Still never had a bad stout from Bell’s - ever.

Draft at Logans Alley - pours jet black with thin tan head . Big roasty RIS ... Some sweet notes (honey?) and a smooth palate . Outstanding !

Draft pour at the source. Pours a darker brown to black with a beige head of foam. The aroma has sweet maple, toasty coffee, some toffee notes. The taste is sweet and a little toasty. Bigger body and moderate carbonation.

Sample at Eccentric. Body is deep brown and supports little head. Aromas are weakly hinting at coffee and dark brown sugar. Flavor is lots of coffee and a little anise that picks up on the tail end. Finish is bitter and licorice like.
