OPIE788 (337) - Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft. Poured black with very little head. Nose was mostly coffee with a hint of sweetness. Nice coffee and dark coco tastes. Not the biggest Bells fan but this one it good.

mandylee (50) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Dark, cloudy pour with creamy foam. Great heavy lacing. Good strong stout with a sharp front taste. Not my favorite, but still quite good.

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pours a rich, opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head. Smoky, malty aroma definitely has a hint of bourbon to it. Flavor adds smoky malt, woody, semi-sweet and subtle bourbon notes that sum to a tasty, if not mind-blowing, stout. Texture, though, is a downer, thin for a stout and lacking in fizz. Still, roll out this barrel!

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Black color with no head. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, dark roast smell. medium body. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, dark roast, boozy flavors--too boozy

gopherfan99 (598) - CROATIA - NOV 26, 2011
A complex seasonal that features hitns of caramel, chocolate, coffee, nuts. It pours dark and has a dark brown head. Drinks smooth and a lingering finish.

zimm421 (57) - Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Poured into a snifter. Dark brown, tan head. Nose is muted and sweet chocolate/roasted malts. Taste is also very sweet. Overall decent but not that impressed.

Huge cherry and bourbon nose. Sweet malt notes hit the back of your mouth . Very well crated beer.
