Lots of roast and coffee flavor up front, a little licorice in the back, but not enough to be overpowering. Good beer.

I love this beer. The licorice and the stout blend botanical extract and ale art and science perfectly.

Pours dark brown to black with brown head from 12oz. bottle into pint glass. Heavy dark roasted malt aroma, you can smell the bitter licorice coming through as well. Deep bitter roast flavor with a lot of coffee and cocoa. Has an almost smoky burnt after taste resembling the char on grilled red meat. Delicious.

Mouth-watering aromas of chocolate, sorghum and roast malts. It’s a gorgeous nearly-black opaque color with a mocha head that’s frothy and firm. An absolute explosion of flavor! This is a stout-drinker’s stout, with roasted malt, espresso, and a sharp hop ending that is absolutely perfect. The mouthfeel is creamy like a milkshake, with a lingering roasted malt and hop flavor that lasts long enough to demand another sip.

Pours a dark black color. Loads of coffee and black licorice taste here. Oddly very juicy and wet as well. Some dark chocolate here as well. Almost a BBQ meaty sort of thing going on here. Bright as well. Sharp tasting but still silky on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours an opaque black with quick dissipating head. Not much aroma, some slight chocolate malts come thru. Taste is chocolate malts with roasted coffee beans and toast. Palate is thin, decently carbonated. Some lingering bitterness. Good, but overrated in my opinion. Plenty of other options available that blow this away, even from Bells.
