COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Pours out a pitch black with a slow forming head that works its way up to about an inch and a half of brown foam. As the head recedes down to a smaller on that lasts throughout rings of lace are left decorating the glass. Picture perfect looking brew here nice head good lace, what more could you want. Strong aroma with roasted coffee and dark chocolate coming out the most. I was able to smell this as I was pouring it. Taste is similar with a bitter coffee flavor up front and a slight earthy hoppiness as well. Slight bit of cream to the flavor before it ends in a lingering bitter coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel is slick with a medium to full body. Great drinkability as this went down very easy and I would have had another if I had it.

Pours black as any good stout would a very thick nice brown head laces the glass as you drink it. Fantastic aroma of toasted malt and coffee. Flavor is just like it smelled. Very toasty coffee goodness abound in the flavor. Some dark chocolate comes through and sweetens it up a touch. The palate is very smooth and creamy for a stout and just bitter enough at the end to let you know it is a stout. Better than a great cup of coffee very smokey and enjoyable. Fantastic and drinkable stout. Bell’s never disappoints! This is not quite the expedition stout, but still a very good drink!

A flavorful toast and nice chocolate greets your nose at first, pouring reveals a black stout easing into tan foam. A generous full body, lively drinking brew.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2005
Bottle courtesy of csbosox: Black body that appears dark brown when held up to light, small, tight light brown head that fades to a small creamy ring. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Full bodied, creamy, somewhat oily and sticky, medium lively carbonation. Taste has a lot of roasted dark malt, some bitter bakers chocolate, light coffee, and caramelized sugar. Finishes with some roasted bitter malt notes and just a hint of sweetness. A great bottled stout.

Balck body medium brown head. Roasty smell. Bitter coffee coupled with creamy chocolate flavor. Nice body with almost no waterness. Slightly smoky and delcious. NIce coffee finish. This beer is good throughout.

thehinge (279) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 26, 2005
This is almost like an Imperial Stout....in fact, I can hardly tell the difference. Pours black as night with a tan head with lots of lacing. Taste is medium bodied with a roasty front end and chocolatey finish. Very nice....but I swear it’s almost identical to the Expedition Stout.

Honostly...not a real big fan of the stout beer. However...i can certainly see how a stout drinker would enjoy this beer. Very dark, creamy, strong tasting beer.
