Pours dark, black. Looks like a heavy stout. Aroma is slightly roasty, yet fruity. Taste is flat, leaves much to be desired.

"A brownish-black colored beer with a big foamy textured, light brown head. good hang time on this one. a thin ringlet is what’s left behind. Fruity, dark roastiness in the nose. Some grassy notes to the profile in the tasting of a light bodied beer. Overall good."

Trade with Silphium. If anyone from Bell’s reads these reviews, please consider CO distribution, you have a lot of fans here! Was not expecting a deep black pour with a quickly dissipating tan head. Yeasty and tropical fruit nose with alcohol obvious. Roast malt and chicory dominate the taste, with the warm fruit lingering. Nice!
