It pours a rich black color. It is one of the best smelling beers I have ever had. Rich chocolate cream, with a hint of malt. I was really excited. The taste is pleasant but boring. It starts off sweet and creamy which is great. Then it goes to lite bitter coffee finish. The taste is not that complex and goes quickly. One of the other beers I just had (chocolate oatmeal stout) was much more complex and had 5 different complex flavors and then had a similar bitter finish. Although that beer was much too bitter at the end.

벨스 브루어리 - 스페셜 더블크림 스타우트 6.1% ABV 별로 스페셜하지도, 별로 더블 크리미 하지도 않은 스타우트 맥주. 놀라운건 레이트 비어 기준 99점이라는 것이다 최고점이 1000점이었을리ᇛ 없고.. 원래 칼라마주라는 1세대부터 활약하던 브루어리인데, 그래서 빨아준건가 싶기도 하고, 오래전부터 점수가 쌓여서 그런건지 싶기도 하고, 하여간 타베로그도 그렇고 음식평에 있어 점수는 믿을게 못된다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Creamy with a small smoky taste. Not much more to it. Little or no after taste at all.

Bell's brewery did a good job with this stout. Taste of cream initially but quickly disappears in the background. Would drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best stout I’ve had. I found it at a little restaurant in WI on tap and I can’t get it out of my head. Beautiful balance of chocolate and coffee in the background behind a rich, silky texture.

_angst_ (3649) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours blackish brown with a rather small pale mocha head that leaves some sparse spotty trace in the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, salty liquorice candy, moist soil and leather. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, round, tiny roasted astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, crisp bread, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice candy and moist soil. Huge malt bill in a smooth tasty stout. Yum!

Smells like cream, milk, and stout. Medium carbonation that is kind of sharp actually. Incredibly smooth. Almost unbelievably so. I thought the Kalamazoo Stout was smooth, but man, this is the definition of smooth. If other stouts are dark chocolate, this is the sweet milk chocolate with a side of milk and cookies. A mild stout with a very milky, creamy taste. Aftertaste is medium-long length and the same. Doesn’t really end with a noticable slightly bitter coffee/dark chocolate finish that a lot of stouts end with. It’s mostly just a fading of the creamy mild stout taste.

Smell and taste with roasted coffee, malt, semi sweet dark chocolate, color in clear dark blown with thin crown, slightly slimy texture, very smooth creamy finish...just wish it last a bit longer

Bottled 10/16/14. Pours black, with tan creamy head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, sweet lactose notes. Flavor is roasted, chocolate malt, sweet, but not overly so. Little to no bitterness. Very nice.

The aroma of chocolate and light coffee. The taste is bitter and mostly coffee. Light bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Not as creamy as I had anticipated me. But okay. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
