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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 Pours balck with a 2 finger thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and some slight chocolate notes. Flavor is coffee-like, sweet, roast, chocolate and a bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

Another gem courtesy of Styles- Opaque oily black pour leaving lots of nice belgian style lace. Head is mocha, initially large, and fades to a thin ring. Aroma is mostly coffee and malts, with vanilla and molasses. Semi sweet coffee and coffee beans bitterness are well integrated with molasses and vanilla extract. Bitter sweet coffee finish. Lingering coffe flavours are nice. I almost prefer the other stouts from Bells that I have had, but this one, while not being the monster that the others are, is very well balanced and drinkable, and that’s where it scores its points. Thanks Chris!

Pours black with a medium creamy brown head that dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, coffe, soy sause. Flavor is not as intense as I expected, coffee, chocolate, roasted goodness with a touch of sour in the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, carbonation is just right.

No. 32. Bells Kalamazoo. Honestly I was hoping for Bells Expedition but Jason is probably hiding that in a closet somewhere. Hell, Bells is Bells and Bells is delicious. Dark and chocolicious like a stout of this stature should be. Heavy stuff.

From the bottle: This is the way a stout should look right from the bottle, motor oil-black with a cascading tan head. Little aroma, but there’s a nice roasty flavor ... a hint of coffee, a hint of dark chocolate. Nice.

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Pours a very oily black with a large brown head. Aroma is very chocolatey, dough, black olives, and slight citrus. Flavor is BIG and very yeasty, black olives, coffee, chocolate, and a slight, basil-like note. Mouthfeel is incerdibly full, almost sticky. Quite a lot more rounded and full of details than the expedition. Almost an imperial, nontheless. I would definitely recommend.

Deep dark black color with a creamy brown head. The flavor is everything the aroma promises and more, with its thick roasted malt/chocolate flavors. Excellent Stout!!
