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.

A good stout, but too strong for me. Excellent aroma, smells like coffee and chocolate

Batch 6613: Burnt molasses really overpowers the aroma - as well as a liquid smoke aroma. The body is roasty and smooth - with more smokey overtones and a dark chocolate base. Good.

Wonderful. Delicious. Bells knows Stout. This is highly recommended in conjunction with the Expedition stout. One advantage is that its alcohol character is not at all overwhelming.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Sweet aroma of chocolate/caramel and malt. The tast agrees - VERY smooth. My girlfriend even liked & she does not drink stouts. Excellent mix of chocolate/cofee/caramel (with the caramel taking the lead) and nutty roasted malt. I thought it was a little thin, but it drank just right. Great finish with the best parts of the taste lingering. [$7.99/6pk]

aroma explodes with chocolate, malts and molasses also make an appearance. the pour is jet black, with what i would consider alot of head for a stout beer...about a 1/4 inch of dark brown creamy topping. alot of milk chocolate in the flavor, tailing off too som raosted malts and expresso flavors. nice thick rich creamy body, a totally full mouthfeel. the first sip was a little bitter, but it smoothed out alot as the glass warmed a bit. i don’t know where i would stand on which bells offering is better (this or expedition) except in the line to get more of either one.

Powerful dark chocolate aroma. Slightly sweet, clean maltiness with abundant chocolate. Far more chocolate than most so called chocolate stouts. Much more milk chocolate than the dark aroma suggests. Glorious mouthfeel. Very well balanced, could use maybe at touch more hops.

Pours black, witha light brown head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and smoked and/or roasted malt. Flavor is much like the aroma, and very nice. Another good one from Bells.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Draught at Mad Mex, North Hills. Nice chocolate and coffee bitter aroma. Light smokiness, and some milk sugar. Dark black clear with thin lacing tan head. Medium heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with coffee bitter and chocolatey sweetness. Malt roastiness. Bitter burnt tangy malt throughout, with tangy medium bitter finish, chocolate. Nutty bitter finish, mild coffee. A nice stout.

Pours almost a jet black with a nice bit of foamy tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolately coffee. Flavor is nice and light, smooth, sweet and toffeish with a roasted nutty malty finish. Overall, very very tasty beer.
