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.

This one is wonderful. The aroma was not the best, but the taste, oh the taste. Coffee and chocolate roasted to high heaven. And its smooth and creamy. Very nice, indeed.

first,the label deserves a rating (or berating rather) : the etch-a-sketch wretch depicted is highly unsavory with his dishelveled hair and grimmacing countenance--looks like they packed him into a beer keg and rolled him down a rocky hillside. but be not distracted by inept graphics, the greatness dwells within: this stout pours like melted bittersweet chocolate, a tahini-brown head jealously guards the topside, apparently sealing in some of the aroma, because this one actually tastes more profoundly wonderful than a comparatively modest nose suggests (okay, i had a cigar i confess). but the flavor is like sex in an airliner: fucking close to heaven. great body of godiva, italian roast and merlot, gently sweet, loving tug of bitterness. next time iíll save the cigar for the after glow.

A good stout indeed. Intense roasted flavours. If there is one thing that Larry knows how to make it is stouts.

Tastes much like a dark roasted coffee. Dark, black color with a tan head. Not as bold as the Expedition stout, but still very good. Lots of flavor and easy to drink.

Very impressed with this brew as my first sampled from the Bells family of beverages. Not as thick as I had initially expected, but maintained a nice heas throughout the pint.

A very good stout. I prefer this one over the expedition stout (which is much harder to find and twice the price). This stout is smooth, but still nice and rich. Itís a bit oily, pours with a huge head, and is certainly enjoyed by me.

Nice and full flavor with hints of sweetness and bitterness that fill out the edges of this drink.

Black pour with a thin tan head. Burnt coffee aroma with a very small touch of malt sweetness. Excellent palate, creamy and full. This is my first Bells stout and Iím very impressed.Toasted malt flavors with chocolate/coffee at the front and a little bitterness bringing up the rear. Excellent beer.

Bottled. Dark, opaque pour, medium creamy dark head. Beautiful big nose of milk chocolate, vanilla and a touch of coffee. Flavor, wow, close to Mackeson overall (my favorite sweet stout) but more balanced and bitter. Still mostly sweet and creamy, with a dynamight mouthfeel and strong finish, and in between velvet and wine and bittersweet chocolate. Absolutely phenomenal; hard to imagine the Expedition being any better.
