Although itís really good, I really wanted to like it more. Maybe Iím not a big fan of licorice, I guess. Otherwise, it is a solid stout with a dry finish thatís not too bitter but lingers just a bit. Still, itís chocolate and roasty just how youíd want it. Certainly worth a taste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark brown or black color. Very thick almost clumpy brown head, about two fingers. Good retention, good lacing.
Aroma is medium roasted malts. Smoky, light coffee. Simple, but nice.
Taste is smooth and creamy. Light coffee, some decent roasted malts. Maybe a little licorice. Tasting some light chocolate and caramel. Thereís a touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not as thick and heavy you would think. It is smooth and creamy. It finishes dry..
Overall, itís a good stout. Its not a great stout. I wouldnít hesitate to buy it again. I recommend it. Bellís is new to my area, and Iím eager to try more and more of their stuff. Good stout!

I may have just had the best beer Iíve ever tasted!!! The 4.8 is a perfect score on the chance I ever taste something best! Just an awesome stout, small head, and no bitter aftertaste at all...which I find on most stouts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kalamazoo Stout has a medium, beige head, a dark brown appearance, with standard brown on the edges, as light hits it, and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet brown bread and creamy malt, and the taste is of sweet brown bread, malt, cafe au lait, maybe some background licorice, and low-level bitterness. No char, really. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Kalamazoo Stout finishes medium dry. RJT

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.355l bottle. Pitch black body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, leather and some floral hops. Taste of caramel, chocolate, coffee, leather and floral hops. Both the aroma and the taste are very characteristic, based on those I would definitely think this is an imperial stout. Kind of weird that itís only 6%.

Mörk nästan svart. Lakrits och rostad malt i doft. Smaken är lättare än vad trodde med lite choklad och lakrits.
