Pours black with tan head. Smells of milk and bitter chocolate. Very creamy mouth feel that turns to a semi-sweet chocolate. Finishes with a sharp bitter that is well balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Black with a tan colored head about 1 1/2 fingers worth. Aroma was mostly cocoa chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor was sweet with milk chocolate up front with coffee following And some burnt malt on the finish. Had a thin almost water mouthfeel. Overall an ok nothing special stout.

missing an aroma for a double creme.. the head is a gorgeous off white. taste is smooth and creamy. Really well balanced, has the bitterness but is nicely balanced with sweetness. not their best beer by any means but still better than most

very much a coffee and molssas stout. had some prune in the aroma. not as heavy as some other Bellís stouts but very good. very well balanced with just enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. will try again in the winter.

shackinetics (132) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Pours a dark iodine color with thin mocha head. Sweet roasted chocolatey coffee notes with thick, syrupy and very smooth mouth feel. Good to great stout.

Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, lots of roasted malt. Flavor is true to the aroma, with a big creamy character of malts and coffee. Simple, yes, but very tasty. Sometimes, damn it, you just want a solid beer. This is it, with no frills. Could use some more hops though. Smooth mouthfeel.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2008
a very harmonious whole - not too thick, not too sweet but very smooth, lots of action but nothing obnoxiously dominant. wish Iíd bought a 6 and not a single

On tap at the Gnome - Pours a deep black with a small head. The nose is rich toasted malt , with chocolate, and coffee. Comes across the palate with a bit sweet before more bitter toasted malt , with hints of chocolate and coffee. The mouth feel is too tacky to be very drinkable. Nice lingering toastyness. Pretty tasty,but not your everyday easy drinking beer.
