koleminer20 (2458) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2016
12 oz bottle. I’m not sure how in the hell I haven’t rated this. Jesus. The pour is a lighter black with a thin light khaki head and a little bit of lace left behind. The aroma is good. There is a big heavy coffee from start to finish. There is a light chocolate and a light roasted malt. It’s lightly sweet with a bitter coffee. It’s pretty good. The flavor is quite similar. There is a bit more sweetness to it. The coffee is still bit and bitter. The mouth feel is thicker for a regular stout and softly carbonated. It’s almost perfect there. The coffee and chocolate is just nice. One of the better Bell’s stouts
