Bottle courtesy of colemgm8 pours black with little quick diminishing tan head. Aroma is chocolate and chocolate malt. First taste is sweet light coffee and nuts, then a great chocolate flavor takes over and finishes really nice. The mouthfeel is creamy with little carbonation which really complements this beer.

If theirs one thing Bells can do right its the stout. Dark, sweet and oh so tasty, If you have access to the Bells line, pick this one up, or six or eight.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2010 Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head. Sparse lacing. Smells of coffee, nuts and malt. Nice medium bodied palate; but I expected more. A little short and bitter on the finish. A decent stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, raisins, and hint of vanilla. Flavor is roasted raisins with a sweet bitter finish. Flavor is rich and it stays with you through the finish.

It definately has a good name. The flavor however is all but short lived. IT comes in the end and then its over with.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark color, subdued aroma, mostly malty. I smell a subtle sourness that concerns me, but in the taste it translates to a subtle fruitiness. Rich and creamy like a milkshake. Fruity with a bitter, dry finish. Quite quaffable.
