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.

Poured into snifter with a 1 finger tan head which quickly dissipated leaving slight lacing. Beer is very dark colored. Aroma filled with roasted malts, vanilla and toffee. Great roasted flavor with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Beer finishes bitter with notes of the hops and licorice. Medium body, less heavy than I expected based on the appearance. Moderate amount of carbonation, could be slightly creamier. Overall a great beer with lots of flavor. This is the first Bell’s that I’ve had, looking forward to trying more!

TH28 (251) - - JUL 24, 2015
12oz bottle. 2/26/15 package date (5mths old). Appearance: Black, opaque, thick, creamy brown head. Aroma: Roasty malt, dark cocoa, hint of vanilla Taste: Starts with sweet rich maltiness, rich roast and coffee, and some dark cocoa. Moderately strong bitterness. Very smooth flavor considering the heavy roast. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finish: Lingering bitterness and roast. Very dry. Overall: Good American style stout. Roasted malt flavor is dominant, but smooth instead of harsh. Complimented by some sweet base malt and chocolate. Drinkable considering the richness and alcohol.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured black, certainly heavy, tan head and a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts and some hints of chocolate. Taste is also coffee and some roasted malts and chocolate finish. Very good stout, quite enjoyable.

From a bottle. Pours very dark black/brown with a fizzy light tan head. Tastes like dark coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malt, light tobacco and light ash. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate, ash, dark coffee, and roasted malt.

Muggus69 (1525) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel. PKGD 2/27/15 Opaque black body, holds a small but firm dense tan head. Nose not overly pungent, but certainly plenty to enjoy about it; dark chocolate, roast nut, burnt meatiness, licorice, rich caramels with earthy hop spice. Lovely and smooth on the palate, low carbonation, tremendous sense of balance and length. Excellent flavour - lots of roast/burnt nutty malt, deep toffee, bitter chocolate, touch of mid-roast coffee, with earthy hops lending an assertive but well tempered bitterness to the whole thing. Class act overall!

I like this - nothing too exciting to look at and doesn’t give too much away on the nose. Taste is super balanced and just a really enjoyable beer. Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, earthy bitterness. I dig.

BiiruBierBeer (605) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells like a stout I guess. Mild hints of chocolate. Medium sharp carbonation. Extremely smooth. Not foamy or syrupy at all. Just the right silky smooth consistency. Pretty much the perfect example of a straight-up stout. It has those coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted nut tastes that you would expect without any of them being over-pronounced. Aftertaste is medium to long length and the same.

Shark_Pants (449) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2015
Opaque black as promised, with small mocha head. Very roasty aromas - charcoal, coffee beans and well toasted bread. The taste is masterfully balanced between sweet and roasty. Treacle, caramel, toast, then charred meat comes in which builds slowly to a dry ashy finish. Medium bodied and prickly acidity on the tongue. Very good stout.

Warped_Silver (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours jet black with brown lasting head. Aroma of burnt sugar, molasses, and milk chocolate. Taste is chocolate, maple syrup and molasses. Thick mouthfeel. Great stout. Competes with imperial stouts at 6%. Very impressive! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RickTheRick (632) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
La bière se présente comme une véritable huile noire et très opaque, surmontée d’une mousse beige crémeuse. Pain grillé, café et sucre brun sont les arômes dominants au nez. La texture en bouche est agréablement onctueuse, les saveurs de chocolat et de café tapissant le palais à chaque gorgée. Des notes de tabac et d’anis font surface plus la bière tempère. Quel stout délicieusement décadent, mais facile à boire!

sarauckelman (263) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Opaque dark black., little head. Faint aroma, with a hint of anise seed. Thick, dark with notes of roasted coffee moving through to a hoppy, watery stage which then leaves the mouth clean and dry. Very well balanced.
