FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle- pours out an absolute opaque black, with an incredible syrup-like thickness. Head was almost nonexistent. Aroma was dark fruit and bog. Amazing pallet, thick and smooth Sweet and bitter at the same time, a very complex flavor mix includes cherries, toast and caramel. Rich, defines a stout.

mallons72 (175) - livonia, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2010
On tap at Ashley’s Westland. Bell’s is the best. This is a very smooth creamy/chocolatey/coffee stout. Somewhat lower rating due to poor finish.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Opaque ebony body with a medium brown foamy head. Aroma of chocolate and sweet roasted mocha. Creamy and medium-bodied. When I bought this, I thought that it would be too malty, as they use ten different kinds of malt, but it’s actually very well balanced. Not as good as the Java Stout, but definitely delicious nonetheless.

Wolfenkopf (174) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
This one’s aroma is overwhelming with coffee. There is a clarity of this note, but no dynamics, which means it smells like coffee and nothing else. The tan head never forms fully, even if aggressively poured. The brew is black. The taste is more than just that of coffee, but barely so. There are vague hints of chocolate and nuts, but just that. It is robust in that coffee flavor and it is to be appreciated for that. A bit carbonized on the palate, the brew is heavy and filmy, though it does not take away from it. This stout is enjoyable and well done, but of a singular hook.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
America Beer Classic. Pours a Dark brown almost black with a creamy head that dissipates to cap. A lot of lacing. Nose is booze, coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Mouth is very roasty with a lot of booze. very creamy and chocolatey.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. Black beer with brown head. Aroma of creamy fudge. Light carbonation, medium to full bodied, and a slick texture. Sweet chocolatey flavor with some roasted coffee bean that was not as apparent in the aroma. A nice after-dinner brew.

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

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2005
I am in love with this beer. Typical malty / roasty aroma that is fitting for a Stout. But the drink! Holy Almighty Roast! Bang, like a bag of roasted coffee beans was just thrown in your general direction at a high rate of speed with the intention to take your head off. Super, super burnt carmel and toffee. Then, just as quckly as it came, the flavor dissapears into a mildly roasted flavor of... Graham Crackers? Good stuff!
