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 thin black with reddish tan head. Nose is subtle and roasty with some smooth chocolate notes. Flavor is crisp and roasty with mild bitterness. A little thin on the tongue. An easy yet satisfying drink.

Vintage 2003 bottle.
Pours dark brown almost black with a fine tan head. Dominating milk chocolate and cream aroma, full with a heavy sweetness that makes it sticky and cloying - I miss some roast and hop in there. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate with a dusty dry mouthfeel. Some sourness from the roast. Biding finish. A good stout, but being a top 50 I had hoped for more!

anaheim1983 (140) - Anaheim, California, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Poured pitch black with small frothy brown head with nice lacing on the edges. Thick as a brick.Aroma malty with chocolate and toffee in the nose. Big chocolate flavor hits initially, than settles into malty notes with a roasted barley flavor. Slighty bitter through the middle to end of the beer. Thick coffee like mouthfeel. Very nice stout. Bells makes some excellent beers.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Completely black, dense stout. Silky, molasses feel. Strong roasted coffee flavor. Sharp bitter chocolate bite. Also has a unique smokiness to the nose. This is definetly a nice stocker for the Winter.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - FEB 17, 2006
12 oz bottle thanks to Illinismitty. Poured a deep black with a thick, fluffy tan head which faded slowly with nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Nice smooth malty flavor with notes of caramel, and coffee. Very rich lingering mouth feel! Iím not much of a common stout drinker, but this was outstanding. Probably the best stout I have had.

Definitly one of the better stouts. Very complex taste, theres some molasses and chocolate that really comes out in both the flavor and smell.
