Opaque black body with a large mocha head. The aroma is a huge sweet malty assault. Tons of chocolate. The flavor is equally as massive. Chococlate, sweet malts, a decent hop presence. Medium to full body, fairly soft palate. Very nice beer from the king of stout brewers!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Mocha like aroma, distinct but not heavy, stong but mellow cream coffe taste, like a fine malted starbucks concoction, smooth rich aftertaste. Definitely on my A list

Dark as night with mocha colored head. Sour cherry mocha icecream nose with lactic undertones. Heavey weight with light sweetness in the mid palate and a dry coffee finish. CREAMY, wow thatís an understatement with mocha coffee notes and bitter chocolate. Very rich but not cloying or heavy. Awesome beer!

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Bottle pours a luscious black with an Aveda Spa air brush tan head and some psychedelic lace. The aroma is of bitter chocolate and malt. The flavor is malt, sweet, bitter chocolate, and very smooth and creamy. They were right on with the name. This is one creamy stout. Overall, if I wanted to gain tons of weight, I would drink this.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Poured black as can be with just a trace of a khaki/ orange head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. There is also some peanut butter. The taste is not near as sweet as I would have expected. A full mouthfeel with some notes of dark chocolate and some malts. Also, some roasted character that is very strong. There is a hint of roasted almonds in the finish. It is creamy and smooth. Another very solid stout from Bellís.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Black pour, almost no head. Roasted cocoa and coffee aroma. Flavor mimics aroma. Not bad.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Nice dark brown color,small tan head that faded slowly leaving very little behind.Nice malty caramel and toffee aroma with a decent sweet side coming through and maybe a bit of coffee as well.Nice bitter chocolate taste some toffee and the coffee flavor manages to come on the scene late in the pallate.There is a slight alcohol presence but it is fairly mild and doesnít make to much of itself known.Over all a very nice brew and well worth having a few more around.Thanks go to Robertsreality for sending this fine brew my way.

Hoo hah more Bellís stouts compliments of The Factonator. This one poured pitch black with a rather large tan head. The nose is milk chocolate, coffee, and some licorice notes. The flavor is slightly sweet and fairly bitter with some chocolate, coffee, and toffee. This one manages to be a very smooth yet complex stout that hides the fact its a 7.5% ABV very well. Wish I had another one. GRRRREAT!
