A super great stout-like beer!!
Nice dark color, and great, maltiness on the nose. The taste is, well, GREAT!!! Nice semi-sweet front of tongue, malts and coffee throughout, and mouth feel is rich and creamy. Finish is smooth and slightly sweet, with chocolate and coffee. Another Bell’s triumph...

Strong and sweet but a tad weak-bodied. Loaded with malts and quite alcoholic on the ending.

Pours a rust copper color with an orangish-tan head. Plum and toffee on the nose. Moderately thick with adequate carbonation. Tastes approximate the nose except that the plum and toffee come through more prominently.

Bottle. Really loved this one. Deep, amber-copper color. Light head. Aroma was fruit cake, hints of molasses. Taste is dried fruit, fruit cake, malty sweet. Not bad.

Beautiful brown pour. Brown sugar and cherry aroma. Nice residual sweetness with bready undertones. Slightest of phenolic on the back end but great beer

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is full of dried fruit and cherry. Some grape. Light sherry. Deep red to brown with a small off white head. Taste is slightly sweet with a moderately to highly watery mouthfeel. Not necessarily oxidized but just flat and thin in malt presence. A shame since it smells so good.

Bottle. Poured clear amber -- very attractive color. Aroma is mild but nice. Flavor is smooth but a little bland all-around. Leaves you a dry, sour aftertaste. Not bad and very drinkable, but missing something...
Had it with some spicy hummus -- balanced well!!!
