Roasty smells. Dark, it is a stout. The head is oily. The taste is pretty sweat and roasted. It feels a little too fizzy on the tongue. It is what it is, if you like lots of cream, then you will like this.

Pours almost black with a dense foamy head. Aroma is of a smoky coffee with a hint of chocolate. Palate feel and taste is a creamy smoky aftertaste that stays with you until sip.

Molasses and plumb smell. Deep sweet molasses taste with plumb and dates. Bitter aftertaste. Still fairly dry. Very drinkable and balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok this beer is drinkable but really I have only found one beer that was not and it was in the basement of a hermit type guys house. He brewed his own beer and something tells me there was some type of small animal used to make the beer. This beer was not my favorite but its good. Its creamy and tastes like tree root beer thats not sweet. If it were triple cream stout Im sure you would have to eat it out of a butter bowl. I had a tooth removed so I had to hide the scent with a breat saver rather than my favorite Big Red. Very creamy earthy flavored beer that wont get you hammered. Would go good with Fish, steaks, ice cream, or even grits. Keep on drinking!!!!!!!

Sweet on the nose, sweet on the taste. Good cream stout. Wish it was a little thicker.

Bottle. Aroma: Caramel, roasty, sweet, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Appearance: Pitch black, with dark tan, creamy head. Taste: Sweet, malty flavor, with vanilla and coffee notes. Palate: Very pleasant, soft carbonation, fully body, and astringent, long, slightly sour finish. Solid stout with great, full flavor and a wonderful feel on the palate. Would be great on a cold day. Average drinkability, but a real treat as a one-off beverage.

Typical opaque brown/black color for a good stout. Not as robust flavor as some of the premier stouts, say medium sweet, I liked it. A quick fizz for a stout, but not too distracting. finishes smooth.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2011 Pours a dark brown body with a small creamy head. Aroma is burnt with chocolate, toffee, and cereal. The mouth feel is full in body and high in warmth with a medium finish. Flavor of dark chocolate, toffee, and nuts...

Shows roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee flavors. Very little carbonation, no head, with an extremely smooth mouthfeel. An excellent all around stout.

Bottle. Poured near black with big light brown head that stuck to the glass. Very nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, chocolate, and milk. Had a roasted malty flavor. The palate was thick and creamy. A very good beer from Bell’s. And I love the label.
