3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich, dark apearance and aroma. Heavy body, with creaminess throughout and minimal roasted character. This isn’t my favorite style, but this one is a pretty good option for the category.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice dark brown black color with a rich creamy head, smells of roasted coffee chocolate and a hint out carmel, taste is amazing very pleasing on the palate you get that roasted malt, carmel chocolate flavor everytime, but every time you take a drink it seems you taste one over the other then the next its something else.....Love this beer very good stout...

A very dark pour with tan head. A faint smell of cocoa. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate that lingers a while. A nice beer.

First bottle opened on New Year’s day. Love Bell’s stouts. Creamy head, smooth flavor with hints of chocolately, nuttiness. Glad it got packed in the suitcase.

A vigorous pour yields a heavy and nearly black looking beer with almost no head. A few seconds later a small one forms that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is the best aspect of this beer, loaded with chocolate, coffee and dark dark malts. The flavor and mouthfeel also deliver what was expected from Bell’s Brewery. It is very sweet but balanced with malt and surprisingly, a moderate hop bitterness. If this beer had a better head and was a little less hoppy, it would be a favorite.

Very dark beer with thick almond head, similar to porter, complex flavors include coffee, caramel, and scorched popcorn. Smooth without being too bitter or harsh.
