4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from CBX. Pours a darker than black color with tan super bubbly head which evaporates quickly. Nice sweet smell of chocolate and roasty goodness. Very crisp and refreshing taste. I get a bit of burnt toast, with a good bit of sweet creaminess and light finish. Very refreshing.

Very smooth tasting cream stout. Not as thick as a stout and has a slightly bitter kick of a pale ale, which I definitely like. It is like a hybrid mix between the two types of beer, enjoy.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black, with medium tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Medium body and carbonation and creamy texture. Taste is sweet with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Slightly bitter aftertaste. This is a wonderful stout.

Bellís has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you canít go wrong. And, a nice stout for those not into stouts. A sweet tasting stout with a chocolate malt aroma. Pours a deep, rich black color with little head. A silky, creamy texture with little carbonation that is long on the finish. Best sipped and savored, not chugged!

Very pleasant smell. Smells almost creamy. Not bitter. Very heavy bodied beer with almost no head. Thick tasting as well. Truly creamy to taste. A+++++

Bottle to pint glass. Dark opaque appearance, light tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Smooth milk upfront, light roasted coffee aftertaste. Not a miss, but was looking for more robust flavor. Average overall

This is close to perfect for me. They do not use lactose in this beer, all the flavor comes from 10 malt varieties used in perfect conjunction. Smooth and rich with no high or hot alcohol, make this one a year round Bellís!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours an opaque black with a small tan head. The aroma is complex. Chocolate hit me first, then coffee, then a bit of dark fruit, then roasted/smoky malts. Full body with just enough carbonation. Finish is long and full of roasted malts.

What a great well balanced Stout. Definitely moving to the top of my list. Coffee and Chocolate flavor with a very smooth creamy after taste. I read in a previous review that the creamy flavor is not overwhelming as the name implies and I would have to agree. Just very smooth and very tasty. Well done Bellís.
