3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This offering was a bit of a let down compared to other sweet stouts like Left Hand’s Milk Stout and Too Cream Stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2011 Man, i must be way out of wack on this one, but i didn’t care for it. (still drank the entire sixer). Too sweet for me and i like a finer, longer lasting head on my stouts. The taste is a nice complex one, but the sweetness comes on too strong. Still, a bad Bells is better the 75% of the beers out there. I wouldn’t kick it out of my fridge, i ya know what i mean.,
**UPDATE** Had another this afternoon waiting for the "rapture" My tastes must have changed because i didn’t find this overy sweet at all! Very nice mouthfeel. I think I’ll have another.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with thin chocolate brown head from a bottle. Roasty, malty aroma lead to a similar creamy flavor profile. Not as thick as expected, and the high carbonation was a little unpleasant to the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with small bubbly head. Flavor is sweet and nutty chocolate with a smooth roastiness and enough bitterness to balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with some head that mostly fades away leaving only a long lasting ring of foam. Tastes very creamy and thick with a little bit of chocolate flavor. Has a very long and complex aftertaste. A good stout but not up to the hype, in my opinion.

I love this beer. Roasty, smooth, a bit sweet and chocolatey. Well-rounded treat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Soft and easy on the tongue, reminiscent of Spotted Cow. Not as hearty as other stouts and not something to drink if you’re looking to tie a buzz on in a single drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderfully creamy stout. It pours piutch black with next to no head - even if you try to get one. A nice taste and aroma of coffee and chocolate. A definite winner.
