DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Pours very dark brown with a thin tan head. Smell is creamy chocolate and some coffee as well. Taste is strong chocolate with a prominenent cream taste to it that shines through the semi-long lasting aftertaste.

I was really expecting a lot more from this rated at 97%. It was smooth but lacking in flavor. I thought this was the weakest Bells I’ve tried. How this can be rated right below Rogue chocolate stout for sweet stout I don’t know. Aroma is roasted coffee with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel watery and flavor leaves you wanting more. I thought this was an alright beer but not solid and definitely not top three percent in the world.

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
