Batch # 7250. Wasn’t too impressed with this one. The aroma was week. The flavor was average. It had a muddy brown apperance. Bells is a good brewery but came up short on this one.

Wow, one great stout after another. Today I went to the store and noticed all bells november stouts in singles! I snagged a variety sixpack of them....... As for the rate-- This was a very sweet stout. Not too creamy though..

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours a deep black with a thin brown head. Aroma is faint with chocolate, ice cream, and a hint of espresso. Flavor is balanced well with sweet malts, cream, and chocolate. Well carbonate, maybe too much. Finishes very creamy and smooth.

Bottle purchased from Tiffany’s in Kalamazoo, Mich. A very solid cream stout. I must say, some of Bell’s has been hit or miss for me. But, this beer is spot-on. Well done.
