3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear and nearly black with a nice big brown creamy head which diminishes quickly. Smells like choclate chip cookies and dark coffee. Also maybe a bit of banana and toffee. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation...fairly creamy textured. Heavy smokey flavor...more coffee. Okay, but only OK...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with 1-inch loose light brown head that quickly dissipates to almost no lacing. Sweet aroma of coffee and chocolate. Dark chocolate and espresso dominate a mild sweetness that lingers, then finishes in a sweeter aftertaste. Caramel and roasted malt notes appear. Mouthfeel has an unexpected liveliness not promised in the flat initial pour. Similar to an imperial stout, but without the alcohol kick. Nice to sip all by itself. (Note: some solids remained in bottle, but didnít pour into glass.)

Black pour, some head with good lacing. Good but not overpowering creamy nose. Taste is very maltyócream and chocolate with a nutty finish. Not much in the way of hops though they are present, but overall pretty awesome.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich, dark apearance and aroma. Heavy body, with creaminess throughout and minimal roasted character. This isnít my favorite style, but this one is a pretty good option for the category.

Black pour with very little tan head. Roasty creaminess on the nose, some nice chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel and taste, vanilla/chocolate deliciousness.

Pours a nice dark brown black color with a rich creamy head, smells of roasted coffee chocolate and a hint out carmel, taste is amazing very pleasing on the palate you get that roasted malt, carmel chocolate flavor everytime, but every time you take a drink it seems you taste one over the other then the next its something else.....Love this beer very good stout...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A vigorous pour yields a heavy and nearly black looking beer with almost no head. A few seconds later a small one forms that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is the best aspect of this beer, loaded with chocolate, coffee and dark dark malts. The flavor and mouthfeel also deliver what was expected from Bellís Brewery. It is very sweet but balanced with malt and surprisingly, a moderate hop bitterness. If this beer had a better head and was a little less hoppy, it would be a favorite.
