Pitch black beer, light brown head. The aroma has coffee, chocolate and malt, really powerful smell for such a small abv beer. I am seriously impressed. Sweet taste, a bit tarry, bitter and roasted. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A top notch beer and my favorite from Bells easily so far, if every stout around this abv would pack this much flavour I would be one happy camper.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic American dry stout from a brewery perhaps most renowned for its stouts, with dense, moussy, irregular, yellowish beige head and opaque black colour, only revealing its true deep mahogany hue in the end. Very roasted aroma giving off impressions of espresso and coffee grounds, salmiac, charcoal, iron but in a natural, ’blood’ kind of way, burnt wood, toasted bread, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, caramel candy, fried plantain, brambleberries, roasted peanuts. Refinedly sweetish onset of candied cherries and raisins countered by a deep, soft sourishness, very creamy and oily body with appropriately soft carbonation, slick caramelly and toasted maltiness evolving into a big, distinctly coffeeish roasted bitterness lining the mouth cavity, much more coffee-like than dark chocolate-like in this case, with the basic sourishness continuing and a meaty umami flavour adding complexity; peppery hops add further drought in the finish, along with a glow of warming alcohol, which in all stays well hidden (as it ought to be in a 6% ABV beer). Charming, heart-warming, exceptionally well-made, rounded, elegant and deeply roasted: this is a stout of technical perfection and great finesse. Righteously famous.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes along with some oats. Taste is moderately bitter and dry on the mouth. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, biscuits, caramel. Overall a very tasty stout, definitely one of the best I've had.

벨스 브루잉 - 칼라마주 스타우트 6% ABV 미시건에 있던 칼라마주 거리의 ’벨의 양조장’은 처음에 칼라마주 브루어리라는 이름으로 시작했다 2006년 이름을 벨스 브루어리로 변경한다. 평범한 스타우트 맥주
솔직히 평가 사이트에서 점수가 왜 높은지 알 수가 없다. 역사성 때문일까.

Sweet chocolate nose. Smooth drinking. Well balanced sweet/dry/bitter, listed in order of prominence. Mostly chocolate taste with a strong hint of fruit and hops, almost want to call it grape. Deep brown pour with dark brown head, nice color but weak foam. Agitation brings out bitterness, better in the bottle. Nutty aftertaste.

Das Bier ist schwarz und hat eine sehr schöne große bräunliche Schaumkrone. Der Geruch ist süß röstmalzig, Vanille, etwas Kaffee. Der Geschmack ist wunderbar röstmalzig, viel Vanille, Schokolade und Espresso, sehr lecker, nicht zu stark, aber sehr aromatisch.

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.
