3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very very smooth and creamy. Chocolate aftertaste. Thin in the body. Very subtle porter like qualities in this gem of a stout.

very much a coffee and molssas stout. had some prune in the aroma. not as heavy as some other Bell’s stouts but very good. very well balanced with just enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. will try again in the winter.

Pours a dark iodine color with thin mocha head. Sweet roasted chocolatey coffee notes with thick, syrupy and very smooth mouth feel. Good to great stout.

Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, lots of roasted malt. Flavor is true to the aroma, with a big creamy character of malts and coffee. Simple, yes, but very tasty. Sometimes, damn it, you just want a solid beer. This is it, with no frills. Could use some more hops though. Smooth mouthfeel.

missing an aroma for a double creme.. the head is a gorgeous off white. taste is smooth and creamy. Really well balanced, has the bitterness but is nicely balanced with sweetness. not their best beer by any means but still better than most

a very harmonious whole - not too thick, not too sweet but very smooth, lots of action but nothing obnoxiously dominant. wish I’d bought a 6 and not a single

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Gnome - Pours a deep black with a small head. The nose is rich toasted malt , with chocolate, and coffee. Comes across the palate with a bit sweet before more bitter toasted malt , with hints of chocolate and coffee. The mouth feel is too tacky to be very drinkable. Nice lingering toastyness. Pretty tasty,but not your everyday easy drinking beer.

On tap at Reggie’s. Good, solid sweet stout. Ar: Caramel/burnt sugar, chocolate and signs of the dominant honey to come. Ap: Creamy brown head w/ good retention. Color was a very deep brown bordering on black, but couldn’t be sure in the reddish light of Reggie’s. Fl: Creamy coffee au lait, roasted malts, milky sweetness, chocolate pudding and above all, honey. The Mocha aftertaste was pleasant. Improves considerably upon warming up and the honey was delicious.
