Bell’s has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you can’t 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!

Poured from cask at Fuel Woodfire Grill in Port Huron, MI. Pours a motor oil black with a limited amount of tiny bubbles. Not much on the nose. Insanely silky mouthfeel with only the smallest bit of carbonation. Tastes of bitter chocolate and tapers off with an alcohol finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella. Color marrón muy oscuro casi negro corona compacta y persistente. Carbonatacion media. Aroma a azúcar quemado, licor, café y melaza. En boca entra dulce dando paso a notas de café y melaza acabando más bien dulce y licorosa. Alcohol perfectamente integrado con sabor y cuerpo

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 Bell’s!

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.

cwill (60) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Dark brown pour with a minimal head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Tastes like a milk stout, but it is completely dairy-free; cocoa and espresso and roasted malts. As advertised it has a smooth, creamy texture. Not terribly impressed with this one.

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 Bell’s.

Bottle. Very nice chocolate aroma here. Also seems to be a touch or a roasty, caramel. Very nice and thick on the palate. Hs a really creamy, chocolate flavor. I also get a little bit of coffee and caramel. Has a little tan colored head, with a little bite of lace on the glass. A very nice cream stout. I was very impressed with my first Bell’s beer.

Poured from a 12 oz’er into a plastic Dixie cup. Not ideal, but these things happen. Nice tan head. Roasted malts dominate the aroma. Flavor is leather, raisins, dark and bitter chocolate. Nice bitter finish. Very smooth, heavy mouthfeel. A great one.
