Pours very dark, almost black, with a deep tan/brown head, very dense. Very complex taste, sweet with a roasty touch. Great stuff. Not as good as Kalamazoo, but really good.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a slight tan head. The aroma is somewhat muted, but sweet and malty. The flavor is nice, but not terribly complex - malts, a touch of coffee, and a little bit of breadiness. Very creamy mouthfeel. Not one of my favorite Bell’s beers.

djtimeless (222) - Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Pours black with little to no brown head. Taste is chocolate malt and coffee. Roasty with a semi-sweet finish. Great balance, very good drinkable. No alcohol taste. One of the better sixpack stouts.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2009
a solid brew, pours black as night with minimal head. despite lack of head the effervescence was noticeable while drinking (not in a way that disrupted the taste). The aroma was quite impressive, a sweet malty, almost wine-like aroma with abundant roastiness. The flavour, while it paled in comparison to the aroma, is still quite good. Deep roasted malts came through in the flavour along with a milky taste/texture. The mouthfeel was quite nice also. Overall a nice brew. Not quite as sweet as I had anticipated but would go for another with no doubt

Very very smooth and creamy. Chocolate aftertaste. Thin in the body. Very subtle porter like qualities in this gem of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 A dark brown poor; smells of malt and roasted barley. Taste has characters of coffee, chocolate, and honey with a slight fruity background - either cherry or berries. An even mixture of flavors with a creamy roasted undertone. An excellent brew; goes extremely well with chocolate desserts.

Bottle poured into snifter. Dark black coffee with 1 fingers worth of cinnamon colored foam. Mild aromas of coffee on the nose. Taste is smoooooth. Roast coffee and toasty sweet bread. Medium body mouthfeel. Pretty smooth stout.
