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.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Aroma - Rich burnt malt. Appearance - Can't see through black with a nice thick brown head. Flavor - Nice rich burnt malt character with a noticeable amount of bittering hops. Its a smooth stout, but not as smooth as their porter. The acidic finish is a bit distracting in an otherwise very good beer.

Bottle at home. Black colour with a huge, long-lasting brown head. Nose is coffee with some sourness. Taste is medium to high bitterness, with some sourness in the end. Coffee aftertaste. Low carbonation, but very smooth. Nice brew, can’t really feel the licorice.

A black beer, a head is medium and light brown. Aroma is great, strong liquirice and dark chocolate, some sourness of milk and roastiness. Taste has liquirice, coffee, some bitterness in the end. Medium bodied, smooth. The body could be strenghten but nothing wrong in this either. The great beer which is dominated by tasteful liquirice and chocolate.

Biroholik (623) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 25, 2016
UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 4-ty najlepszy Stout na świecie.
Stout warzony z dodatkiem lukrecji.
Piwo ma nieprzejrzyście czarny kolor. Piana jest beżowa, czapowata, drobnooczkowa i wylewa się ze szkła. Każdy łyk powoduje rysowanie krążka na ściankach. W aromacie słodka czekolada, karmel, lukrecja i odrobina wanilii. W kontrze do tej słodyczy nos atakuje subtelna paloność. W smaku początek jest słodki z wyżej wymienionymi składnikami. Goryczka średnia, niezalegająca, a sam finsz o dziwo wytrawny, długi z orzechowym posmakiem na podniebieniu. Na ostatniej prostej pojawia się również kawa. Niskie wysycenie. Gęsta, kremowa faktura. Po dodatku lukrecji spodziewałem się słodkiego, zaklejającego usta Stouta, tymczasem sama końcówka była mocno wytrawna. Bardzo dobre piwo. Bell’s Brew trzyma bardzo wysoki poziom. Ich ciemne piwa zaskakują swoim balansem, kremową fakturą i gładkością. Jeżeli gdziekolwiek, kiedykolwiek zobaczycie jakiegoś Stouta z ich browaru - bierzcie w ciemno - satysfakcja gwarantowana!

The color is truly opaque. A brilliant complex, dark aroma. Just a touch too bitter for my taste on the finish, but that is emblematic of the American Stout style.

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2016
330ml bottle (mart). Very dark brown color. Small size, bubbly tan head, stays. Cocoa powder, roast, chocolate, roast and walnuts in aroma. Roast, chocolate, nutty, crumbly cake in taste. Sweet and crumbly chocolate cake in aftertaste. Hopping is well done. Nice mouthfeel. Excellent brew. Extra points for normal level of alcohol.

neongolden (1100) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
(355ml bottle shared @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 21 2016) Pours dark brown with a medium tan head and spotty lace. Aroma is fairly hard-roasted malts, semi-sweet black licorice, a bit of toffee, moderate levels of coffee and darker chocolate, rather dry. Palate again on the drier side with some toffee and caramel for sweetness, along with a reasonable amount of black licorice, coffee grounds, chocolate, roasted and somewhat burnt grains and cacao bitterness. Finish is dry and dusty with lingering licorice and fairly burnt malt. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Very nice stout for the alcohol content, but maybe not quite as intense as it could be even then.
