As far as non-flavored sweet stouts go, this one rates high. Smooth and robust. They use 10 different malts. This brew has more grain depth than the typical sweet stout. No coffee, no chocolate, just straight up smooth and creamy stout.

Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing. Very mild aroma with notes of vanilla and malt. Thinner mouthfeel than I expected. Coffee and chocolate notes with a toasty aftertaste. Not bad, but thin for a cream stout.

Gooey, ooey, rich and chewy. If you like a full flavored, chocolatey stout you canít go wrong here. Just bowls you over with the endless flavor

Pours a dark, dark brown with a small tan head that vanished quickly. Pleasant chocolate and molasses aroma. Great taste of chocolate and malt with a bit of coffee. Incredible creamy, smooth finish makes this one of my favorites.

Bottle at Bellís Eccentric Cafe. Not overly impressed. If I didnít know better, I would never have guessed this is a sweet stout. Tasted very mainstream. Nothing that made me want another. Switched to the Expedition stout-- much better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For a beer with 10 different types of malt in it this was a disappointingly one-dimensional beer. Faint aroma of coffee and liquorice, and with a taste of cold coffee and mollases. Really malt sweet upfront, but a thin, watery body - nothing like the fat, chewy character of its big brother the Expedition Stout. A poor relation in my book.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

(draft) A nice roasty chocolate flavor. The extra alcohol, as compared to similar stouts, seemed unnecessary to me, and annoyed me a little. A beer this good doesnít need the alcohol gimmick.

Great beer. I have never tried anything from Bellís brewery but look forward to discovering other great beers.
