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.

So far the only "regular" stout I have tried. I enjoyed it immensely, it is one of the best beers I have had. It added to my respect for Bell’s, and left me eager to try more stouts.

Bottle into stout glass. Lots of head black beer. Not much aroma. Malt roast a touch sweet. Can't taste the licorice. Bitter aftertaste but Smooth. Decent stout but not one of the greats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faint Chocolate and roasted malted aroma, also slightly smoky. All that fades over time. Lightly carbonated, almost no head. Roasted and chocolate malt flavors. Slight bitter finish which dissipates quickly. Black in color.

smroush (114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Aromas of roasted coffee, with just a bit of a burnt flavor to it. Quite dark, nearly black. Taste is mostly bitter with just a touch of sweetness. Full bodied, slightly oily texture, average carbonation and a long slightly burnt, bitter coffee finish. Overall a pretty good stout. I like the just mildly burnt coffee aromas; the complexity of flavors falls short of the great stouts though.

One of the best-looking beers you will find. Aroma is espresso. Flavor is more bitter than expected, but pretty good.

Bottle share at ThePeters leaving drinks. Aroma is big earthy coffee, amaretto biscuit, smoke, malt extract,praline. Dark mahogany brown coloured pour with a halo of loose sark tan head. Flavour is milky, toasted coconut, coffee bean, earth, . palate is semi sweet, little dry and earthy, little chalk. Big flavoursome stout.
