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.

Distinctive brewer flavor. Great aroma. Full bodied with an appropriate amount of hopping and sweetness. Bells is one of the best east side breweries. A fantastic stout.

Thick dark-tan head, smells strongly of coffee and chocolate. I held my glass up to the light, the light couldn’t be seen through this extremely dark and dense stout. The flavor was excellent, I look forword to trying more of the Bell’s stouts.

Nose very reminiscent of St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, tan head, with very smooth, roasted flavor. Traces of burnt caramel all over the place with a well defined bitterness. Good stuff.

I think I’m going to stop describing how stouts look in my ratings unless they look ’un-stoutlike’. Opaque, dark brown? Check. Brownish head? Check. Alright...lovely malt aroma, baker’s chocolate, coffee grounds, talc, oats, and light aromatic hops. Silky and mouthfeel and smooth black malt yield to a lightly citric bitterness. They put too much grapefruit in mine, but good nonetheless.

This stout has smooth, roasty favor. Taste of both coffee and chocolate are apparent, but not overwhelming.

Black in color, nice lacy dark tan head, very rich, very robust, aroma was full of chocolate & coffee, a hint of carmael & nuts in the flavors, very smooth, sweet flavors & aftertaste, great stout

Pours with a bubbly tan head about 1 inch tall. This is a real stout. Rich, dark, and roasty. Caramel and chocolate flavors appear at warmer temps. Smooth and strong. Fairly well hopped too. Easy to drink for such a good complex flavor.

A deep dark black color. Coffee, toffee, and chocolate on the nose. Smooth coffee/toffee taste with a nice clean coffee aftertaste.
