4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Bottle... This beer rocks!... The nose is of milk chocolate, weak coffee and berries in cream. The color is black for the most part. Deep, dark copper when held up to a halogen bulb. Small, well-tanned head with a copper tint. Fully diminishing. The flavor is of cocoa powder and buttermilk up front. Even more intense tartness on the backside. Liquid joy. Liquid Fun. Full-bodied with lively carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Long, tangy, pungent finish with a small hint of prairie grass at the wee end. World class sweet stout.

Batch 8842. Deep brown-black pour with a thick tan head. The nose is very chocolatey. It has the bright cocoaish intensity of the Expedition but in a much lighter body. Very rich and chocolatey with a nice milk chocolate backbone. Unctuous/silky body with a great balance of sweetness and cocoa. There is a bit of vanilla and brown sugar rounding out the back. Chewy, rich and very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of coffee, sour milk and dirt is not too appetizing. Pours black with tan head, small and with a little lacing. Cream is right! Mouthfeel is almost like milk. Still a little sour tasting, but a good effort. THis is 4 of 4 of my Bell’s stout-fest. I’d rank them 1) Expedition 2) Java 3) Double Cream 4) Cherry
