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.

I had this next to 3 Floyd’s Molokolo Stout and Bell’s killed that one! Rich, creamy, notes of bitter chocolate and coffee, a slight bit of sweetness. Two thumbs up. Don’t buy into the 3 Floyd’s mind game!

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.

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

Very smooth palate, nice hint of chocolate after every sip. Not much head on this on but does linger.

WiFlatlander (25) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2010
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.

BlackSwan (24) - Frisco (Dallas), USA - MAY 4, 2011
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.
