3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
