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.

From a bottle. Pours very dark black/brown with a fizzy light tan head. Tastes like dark coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malt, light tobacco and light ash. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate, ash, dark coffee, and roasted malt.

330mL bottle from Beer Cartel. PKGD 2/27/15 Opaque black body, holds a small but firm dense tan head. Nose not overly pungent, but certainly plenty to enjoy about it; dark chocolate, roast nut, burnt meatiness, licorice, rich caramels with earthy hop spice. Lovely and smooth on the palate, low carbonation, tremendous sense of balance and length. Excellent flavour - lots of roast/burnt nutty malt, deep toffee, bitter chocolate, touch of mid-roast coffee, with earthy hops lending an assertive but well tempered bitterness to the whole thing. Class act overall!

I like this - nothing too exciting to look at and doesn’t give too much away on the nose. Taste is super balanced and just a really enjoyable beer. Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, earthy bitterness. I dig.

Smells like a stout I guess. Mild hints of chocolate. Medium sharp carbonation. Extremely smooth. Not foamy or syrupy at all. Just the right silky smooth consistency. Pretty much the perfect example of a straight-up stout. It has those coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted nut tastes that you would expect without any of them being over-pronounced. Aftertaste is medium to long length and the same.

Opaque black as promised, with small mocha head. Very roasty aromas - charcoal, coffee beans and well toasted bread. The taste is masterfully balanced between sweet and roasty. Treacle, caramel, toast, then charred meat comes in which builds slowly to a dry ashy finish. Medium bodied and prickly acidity on the tongue. Very good stout.

Pours jet black with brown lasting head. Aroma of burnt sugar, molasses, and milk chocolate. Taste is chocolate, maple syrup and molasses. Thick mouthfeel. Great stout. Competes with imperial stouts at 6%. Very impressive! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

La bière se présente comme une véritable huile noire et très opaque, surmontée d’une mousse beige crémeuse. Pain grillé, café et sucre brun sont les arômes dominants au nez. La texture en bouche est agréablement onctueuse, les saveurs de chocolat et de café tapissant le palais à chaque gorgée. Des notes de tabac et d’anis font surface plus la bière tempère. Quel stout délicieusement décadent, mais facile à boire!

Opaque dark black., little head. Faint aroma, with a hint of anise seed. Thick, dark with notes of roasted coffee moving through to a hoppy, watery stage which then leaves the mouth clean and dry. Very well balanced.

Pours opaque black, small tan head. The brewers licorice really comes through in the aroma---it’s a bit spicy and anise-y---along with deep toasted notes. Medium body, very smooth. Dry, ashy finish. The carbonation on this is exactly spot-on. It provides a little pricklyiness, but not too much to overwhelm the flavors.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 APPEARANCE - NOSE - Delicious coffee scents right away. Sets me up for the wonderful first sip. FLAVOR - perfect coffee heavy stout flavor. Roasty, slightly bitter (which is the flavor that remains on my tongue). NOTES - I can see why it?s scored 100. And it confirms my theory that Bell?s can make nearly any style beer spot on!
