3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of coffee, ash, dust. Appears an opaque black color with a small deep mahogany head that dissipates. Flavor is complex - sweet chocolate elements combine with a mocha tang, all finishing with an excellent fresh brewed coffee flavor. Palate is medium-thick and creamy, and it certainly helps enhance the coffee aftertaste. Overall, an interesting brew. My thanks to joeybgood for this fine sample.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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
