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.

Rich dark pour with a thin brownish head. Aroma is stout and inviting. Chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose. Flavors of bitter chocolate, strong coffee, dark caramel, and finishes heavy and thick. A full bodied brew and very delicious.

Bottle - Pours deep dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malty chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than I expected. Bitter coffee flavor with a hint of sweetness on the finish. I was expecting a bit more from the flavor after savoring the aroma for a while, but still a very nice stout.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2006
This is a tasty stout. Lots of dark roasted malts on the nose and almost a hint of meatiness. Flavor is mocha-like with a long, long finish.

Black color. Very good Imperial Stout, very well blended, strong malt and caramel, delicate roasted malt, correct bitterness.
A big thank to René!

On tap at the brewpub. This is a delicious stout. Very dark pour, with mocha head. Extreemly inticing roasted and nutty aromas. The flavour is nice and carmelized, with some nutty and coffee tastes in there. Nice after taste as well.

Very good dark appearance. Perhaps the standard for the head. I was a little dissapointed in the flavor.

tennisjoel (1361) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Fairly strong toasted nutty aroma, with some chocolate and fruity notes as well. Small tan head. Pure thick black and chunky texture. Tasty! A very good representation of the style. Hard to find too many flaws with this beer. Bells really excels at making the strouts with this and expedition.

The aroma is very coffee like with hints of chocolate. The color is a deep, dark, black with a thick creamy tan head. There is a nice roasted coffee flavor with a background of chocolate and some hop. The finish is creamy and smooth.
