Black with tan head. Malty aroma with slight chocolate. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is malty, chocolate/coffee and mild. Dry finish. This beer got better upon the second and third tastings.

I don’t know what the design on the label is ...looks like a neuron ? But what I enjoy about, or say intrigued about this beer is the finish. It’s like a Tootsie Roll or butterscotch candy stick, but not overwhelmingly so (perhaps it would be a good pairing). fuzzy mouthfeel, mildly sweet and dry, aroma of burnt sugar, molasses, Sherlock Holmes. Appearance brown/black, cloudy, frothy, tan head finger high, dissipates after a minute, a bit trasparent on the sip, not a heavy fuel, yum

Wow, one great stout after another. Today I went to the store and noticed all bells november stouts in singles! I snagged a variety sixpack of them....... As for the rate-- This was a very sweet stout. Not too creamy though..

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours a deep black with a thin brown head. Aroma is faint with chocolate, ice cream, and a hint of espresso. Flavor is balanced well with sweet malts, cream, and chocolate. Well carbonate, maybe too much. Finishes very creamy and smooth.

Bottle purchased from Tiffany’s in Kalamazoo, Mich. A very solid cream stout. I must say, some of Bell’s has been hit or miss for me. But, this beer is spot-on. Well done.
