COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweeter and smoother than Kalamazoo Stout. A beer for special winter occasions. Great with chocolate desserts. Available October-March.

Awesome stout. Where their Kalamazoo is heavily roasty, this one is smoother, with a silky character. Definite chocolate bar and caramel flavors. Rich and wonderful. One of the more underappreciated stouts.

Nice beer, as I continue to try Bells products, I must say I am impressed. Dark color of course, and minimal head. Flavor is chocolate, malt, coffee, and smokiness. More smoke than I expected though, which threw me a bit. Otherwise really nice beer...creaminess at the very end.

pours jet black with a nice brown head, smooth, creamy stout with tastes of chocolate and coffee. very smooth and drinkable, nice finish. prefer this style to the imperial stouts, much more drinkable in my opinion.

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!
