Pours a dark black with a tan head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet and toasty, of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee with slight bitterness as well. Flavors come together really nicely making this a drinkable and enjoyable stout.

Smell of roasted cofee, medicine stock, malt, come in very deep dark, brown top, tan crown, taste of toasty malt, coffee, just almost full body, thick and slightly slimy, very good stout from Bell’s, but I prefer other Bell’s stouts though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour dark, like an evil dark. About an inch of tan head. Good body. Thick. Tastes of chocolate, malts, sweetness, and caramel. The licorice is a nice accompaniment rather that the star of the show.

From the bottle the pour is very dark chocolate in color, the head is nut brown and lingers on the beer, the aroma is roasted oats with caramel and toffee notes in the back of the nose, the taste is smokey with a hints of caramelized sugars in the finish. Great stout.

Just a great stout. Pours perfectly - nice lingering brown head that lasts the whole beer. Lush, full mouth feel. Lots of delicious dark roast, but not very bitter - more milk chocolate than cocoa. Some anise flavor, too. Overall great beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle. WOW. Pour was almost perfect. Dark, dark and more dark. Head is thick, foamy and lasted FOREVER. Glass was empty, and beer still had foamy head. Roast everything-coffee, malt, espresso, chocolate. A little bit of molasses and licorice. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not enough to worry about..Not much wrong with this beer. Maybe a little more on the abv, but that’s a minor complaint. Wish I had a second bottle

A good stout full of flavor. A little on the mild side. I'd like a bit more kick or flavor.
