COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

This is a very distinctive coffee stout, one that sets itself apart with its bright coffee flavor (as opposed to a burnt/old coffee that is apparent in many others of the same variety, such as Sierra Nevada's). This is solid all around, something I'd drink again and again. Cheers.

Bottle, via IP trade with dresden-- thanks Steve! Dark brown, medium brown head. Rich coffee aroma and flavour, nice bitter black malts, sweet undertones, maybe a bit of hazelnut? A great coffee stout!

Bottle from Bell’s General Store in Kalamazoo. Pour is black with a thin, creamy, beige head. Aroma is coffee with hints of vanilla and cocoa. Taste is thick, smooth coffee and coca. Faint touch of bitterness on the finish but barely noticeable. Very thick, full body. Overall one of the best stouts I’ve had.

I wish Bells brews were available somewhere closer to home and this one is a fine example why. Pours black with a thin, creamy head. Espresso and char aroma. Excellent coffee taste with chocolate and some caramel.

12oz bottle pours a black color with a bit of head. Lots of coffee but not too bitter. Smooth. But still, too much coffee for my liking.

12 ounce bottle. Pours an opaque black color topped by a small dense creamy tan head. Aroma is rich with notes of roasted malt, charred wood and dark coffee. First sip yields a bittersweet roasted malt flavor that has lot’s of coffee flavor. Slightly smoky and intensely bitter. Resiny hops are certainly there as well. A huge stout full of flavor, yet very drinkable. The finish is chewy and bitter with more smokiness. Outstanding.

Somehow this has eluded me for a few years of looking. Thick black pour with khaki head. Lots of fresh coffee aroma. Tastes like a nice coldbrew with a light vanilla and and caramel. Love this stuff
