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 a dark opaque black, full brown head, retentive. Roasty aroma along with some nice chocolate and a bit of coffee. Full flavored, more pronounced chocolate, some roast, molasses, light coffee, long finish. Velvety mouthfeel, rediculously drinkable. Excellent. Thanks NorthYorkSammy for picking this up for me.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2004 I found this one at Gomers and I just couldnít resist. Iíve really began to develop a sweet tooth for stouts. Iíve had some very very good ones of late. Iím sure that has something to do with this. Freaking Awesome beer!!! Definitely changes my mind on Bells. Oberon I thought was bad. Cherry Stout was ok, but its a stout not a fruit beer. Kalamazoo is terrific. Restores my faith in this breweries ability to produce great beer. Chocolately, roasty, smooth, creamy, Iím enamoured once again with Bellís. If I had this one before Oberon, I would have said like many it has to be a bad bottle. Nothing bad about this one. Scores very high marks with me

Very good stout. Malty chocolate aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet, very malty, hints of chocolate and carmel, just a hint of raspberry and a touch of hoppy bitterness. Very smooth and delicious.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Pours a very dark born, almost black with a small head of butterscotch. Flavor is a burnt, dry coffee start that develops into a choclate, malt, very smooth taste, very evenly balanced. What a stout...

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Pours very dark soda-brown with a foamy tan head. A bit dry tasting at first. Chocolate expresso aroma and flavor that feels a little oily going down. Very good stout.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Pours very dark brown with dark tan head. Looks and smells very good. Roasty, coffee, carmel aroma. Malty, roasty tastes dominate. Some coffee flavor, and a hint of sweetness, and creamy, bitterness in the finish. This is a damn good stout. A definate top 10 in my book.

This beer definitly has a coffee aroma but not the freeze dried garbage but some fancy coffee that I never actually drank. Pours with little head. First sip goes down easy but leaves a little bit of bitterness. Complex flavors: you can come up with the adjectives but its good stuff.

Opaque black with a medium head. coffee aroma and roasted malts. Creamy chocolatey start, some coffee too. Buttery. End has a nice hoppy bitterness to bring you back. Very solid brew.
