4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, touch of molasses, light milk chocolate. Poured into the Pint very dark, with a large foamy dark tan head, that slowly became a thick creamy cap. Left thick lacing on glass. Strong, but pleasant coffee flavor with a nice bitter dark chocolate flavor, light touch of milk chocolate and a slightly burnt roasted malt flavor. While bitter, it wasn’t overpowering, just a nice robust flavor.
Nice full body that is very, very creamy, very enjoyable, very smooth. Carbonation is slightly stronger than average. A long pleasant bitter finish, that wasn’t overpowering but nicely robust. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. I am not a big coffee stout fan, although I love stouts. But, this is one I will definitely have again! It is a very fine beer by Bell’s, which always seems to put out very good brews. If you like coffee stouts definitely give this one a try. If you like strong coffee, strong dark chocolate, definitely give this atry. If you like stout also give it a try. Very good job by Bell’s!

Bottle. Dark cola with a tan head. Very solid coffee stout with notes of coffee and chocolate. On the sweet side of things but not in a bad way. Good.

Bottle to snifter. No detailed notes - entering form older tastings. Really heavy on the coffee, but you should probably expect that from the name and description. A little bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like chocolate and coffee. Low to medium carbonation. Very lightly foamy and creamy mouthfeel. Thick and syrupy. Taste is dark chocolate and roasted black coffee. The most prominent flavor is the coffee, and boy is it strong. Aftertaste is long length and the same, with a bit of alcohol warmness and bitterness (unfortunately).

6 ounce sample from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma has some mocha coffee hints present. A bit charry and metallic. Pretty nice. Mostly opaque black body with a medium light tan head. Super coffee like flavor in the start. Medium roast in the middle. Mediocre sweetness. Good stuff.
