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.

Another wonderful product from the people at Bells. Pours a dark ruddy brown/black with a large tan head that leaves tons of lacing down the glass. Light roasted chocolate aroma. Less aroma that I think it should have IMHO. Flavor was roasted malts and burnt chocolate throughout with the hops barely discernable in the finish but incredibly clean finishing. No, it’s not the Expedition Stout but it is a wonderful brew that I am sure I’ll enjoy over and over.

A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is of coffee and bitter chocolate - lovely. The flavor is sweet and yet bitter from coffee notes and bitter chocolate notes combined with hints of smoke. A really great beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this jewel of a beer.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is mostly chocolate with a little nuttiness. The taste was quite a bit sweeter than I expected. Very smooth, very good.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Very dark red/black. Pours with a tan-ish head. Very crisp and dry with high elements of coffee. One of the standards.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Opague and good-looking in an Ommegang goblet. Smells like dark-chocolate (just a little). The description says molasses, but it’s barely, barely there when chilled. At room temp it’s quite noticeable. Also creamy milked-coffee smells. Mouthfeel is creamy but thin, taste begins chocolately, with almost a tinge of rock-candy sweetness, delves into a roasty middle, and finishes cleanly with a hint of coffee. This is good. Reminds me of Troegs Oatmeal, but with more compelxity and not as a good a mouthfeel. Easy-drinkin’ stout.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Delicious to say the least. Thick, dark and sweet, with a perfect finish. I don’t know if it’s just me, but this tastes like slightly burnt popcorn, covered in chocolate...mmmmmmm. Agreed, it's a bit thinner and not as complex as the Expedition, but I like it more.

zach8270 (3431) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head that laces well. Rich roasted malt nose with a hint of caramel. Taste is a bit harsh and vinegary at first but soon turns to a smooth roasted flavor with a hint of mocha and chocolate with a good strong coffee finish. Thanks MarkR. I really enjoyed this one.
