Oct 2013 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a little brown-ruby fringe and a tan head. Aroma is roasty with milk and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is roasty, almost smokey, lots of malt and less chocolate than the smell. An earthy bitterness that coats the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium full and lightly creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of roasty malt character with chocolatey aroma. The head was thin and left little lacing. There’s just something about the mouthfeel I wasn’t keen on. Maybe I’m just comparing this too much to the Expedition.

This was not as creamy/thick as I expected. Great dark chocolate stout, strong bitter chocolate on the aroma and flavours, not too sweet, a tiny touch of expresso, not boozy, easy to drink, very nice.

12oz bottle split two ways. Typical stout aromas, chocolate, roast malt, slight coffee. Taste follows, but as the label says very creamy... In a milky kind of way. Solid, but the other Bell’s stouts slay this one.

Pours dark with a tan head. Dissipates fairly quickly but lacing is nice. Chocolate and coffee notes. Mildly sweet with nice roast taste. It's a solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty thin in the palate - not as creamy as I expected. Nice milk chocolate flavor with moderate sweetness. Light bitterness from the roasted malt, providing pretty good balance. Not a whole lot of complexity. An easy-drinking stout.

Great beer! Sweet but not to the point where it’s weird, a lot of deep malt character. Very drinkable.
