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 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!

SG111 (570) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2015
On tap at Barcade St Marks. Pours black, huge frothy oatmeal-style head. Aroma is very rich. Chocolate and robust roasted malts, coffee, oatmeal flakes. Flavor is fantastic rich chocolate, coffee bitterness, light licorice or fruit notes in there. Pretty creamy but still full bodied mouthfeel. Actually extremely full bodied for 6% abv.

So far the only "regular" stout I have tried. I enjoyed it immensely, it is one of the best beers I have had. It added to my respect for Bell’s, and left me eager to try more stouts.

Bottle into stout glass. Lots of head black beer. Not much aroma. Malt roast a touch sweet. Can't taste the licorice. Bitter aftertaste but Smooth. Decent stout but not one of the greats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faint Chocolate and roasted malted aroma, also slightly smoky. All that fades over time. Lightly carbonated, almost no head. Roasted and chocolate malt flavors. Slight bitter finish which dissipates quickly. Black in color.
