Black, definitely black. Chocolate aroma. Full bodie, soft, very creamy maltiness, slightly roasty. rather sweet with balanced bitter finish. Loaded with flavours. Thanks PsychProf!

yummy! this pours well with a thick cocoa head that stayed nearly the whole glass. Has a sweet/chocolate flavor, I swear I almost tasted (dark)chocolate covered cherries. It’s medium bodied, and finished with a medium roast coffee flavor. I love this brewers dark beers and dislike their lighter ones (anything lighter than their porter). now I need to find their expedition stout........

A fine stout. Smooth, with a chocolate/coffee taste. Drank half and had the other half with chocolate ice cream. WOW!

Another fine beer from bells, I prefer this to the original, malty with hints of coffee and chocolate, very drinkable

Muddy brown with dark orange hues. Thin dark tan head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and oak (originally thought it was furniture polish). Light to medium body. Watery malts at first, but they take hold soon after. Sour oak barrel flavor rides the roasted bittersweet chocolate and black malts. Light fruitiness and woody dryness round this out. Interesting.

Man do I hate dark beers. But this crap was good as hell. Strong so watch how fast and much you consume. Slight coffee/chocolate flavor which was surprisingly smooth to me. I did have about four other things before this though.

Very smooth strong sweet stout. This bber has an extremely nice thick mouthfeel, but is not cloying in any way. The roastiness is balanced by some hops and the prescence of a very well done sweet maltiness. Good stout.

Deep dark color, wonderful chocolate brown head and decent lace. Nose is full of chocolate aroma’s along with the wonderful toasted malts. The start is toasted chocolate malts, rich and creamy, the middle full, the finish slightly bitter sweet and dry. Quite a good stout, and one I will savor as this has been one ’SHIT’ filled day.

I have only yet had this on a CO2 tap but it was still quite nice, for a stout. Sweet and creamy as the name implies. Not the same depth as some of their other stouts but nice.
