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.

A pretty tasty stout. Roasted and coffee flavors are very apparent. This is a full bodied brew with a very rich mouthfeel and smooth finish. A very good stout.

Very dark. Very coffee-like aroma and a subtle chocolate flavor. Very good.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2004 Another whalloping beer from Kalamazoo. Lots of dark roast ’grain hull’ flavors, chocolate and small hints of acetic acid. Some light dough aromas. This is the most interesting Bell’s I;ve had. Amazing full velvet feel slips away fairly clean and light with a bit of acid on the tail. The burned roast adds to the bitter-side of the excellent balance. lots of hoppy bitter melding with the roast bitterness. very nicw.

The look on that guys face says it all about this stout. I really dislike alomost everything from bell’s and this is no exception. Overly strong with a bad taste. But I won’t hold down the average just because I don’t care for the bells taste

Bell’s makes better beers, but barely. This one has really fascinating alternations of unsweetned chocolate and burnt molasses. Be patient with it, as the more you’re willing to relax and let the flavours open up, the more you’ll be rewarded with complexity.

Weird stuff. It was very thin for a stout, and had the oddest sesame oil flavor and consistency to it.

This is my favorite stout so far. Great chocolate and coffee flavors. This beer has a very complex taste that is very pleasurable. Best on tap!

A great stout. Roasty after taste, quite bitter which i like. Bell’s does it again.

Full bodied, well roasted - a little bitter (which is fine). A good stout in a bottle. Needs to breathe a little before drinking - always use a glass. I found the second half of the glass to be better than the first.

Highly comparable to Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout. Rich and smooth with chocolate and roasted overtones. Amazingly integrated flavors, with a general sweet profile at first and a lingering bitterness. Absolutely great stout.
