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.

smboselli (146) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 in the bottle: Nice roasted malt and chocolate taste and aroma. Very smooth and creamy. Some bitterness but smoother than your traditional stouts. Nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

evr1dr (145) - Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2010
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.

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.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - DEC 17, 2004
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.
