Itís pitch black and the head is nougat colored, huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate a hint of licorice and berries. The mouthfeel is semi-oily. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, roasted bitterness, hints of coffee and a light sweetness. Itís smooth and delightful! Thanks you so much Linus_stick/Alan for this one, I cannot wait to taste the rest of the Bellís!! 2320

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.

12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of sweetened chocolate, a lactate-y quality and slight roastiness. Flavour follows suit, with the roastiness and sweetened chocolate upfront - milky body that leaves the slightly sweetened chocolate lingering. Quite good though nothing overly special.

Dogbrick (9809) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This is an excellent Stout, which I understand is par for the course with Bellís. I canít wait to try the entire line! Pours black as night with a thin bone-white head and good lacing. Great smooth creamy flavor that I could enjoy all night.

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
On draft at the new growler joint in Savannah. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is light roast, toast, rich chocolate, caramel, sugary coffee and cake. The taste is smooth, mellow roast, earth, chocolate, caramel, cocoa powder, lactose and coffee with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot if depth, but very tasty and drinkable.

On Tap. This is one creamy and delicious ale. It just makes you want to suck it down. Bellís serves it too cold though.
