DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours very dark blackish, with a great head and great lacing. Smells of coffee, prunes, dark chocolate, cognac, and licorice. Tastes very roasty and creamy malty. Finishes very smooth, with a creamy, roasty flavor. Very bold. This one reminds me of the Lancaster Milk Stout. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Chocolate milk, toasted bread, caramel and a handful of black grapes coalesce in this cohesive Sweet Stout...

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
2009-07-19. Pitch black body, nice tan head faces. (3+) Aroma of roast malt, touch of coffee grounds. (6+) Flavour is sweeter than expected from the nose, touches of roast and mocha overtones, but not a lot of roast bitterness, sweet malty middle. Smooth medum plate is lightly carbonated. Aged a bit longer than planned, but it is a decent stout. Aged Bottle via ChicagoDRI trade.

shrubber85 (7571) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Creamy dark chocolate malt aroma. Black-brown color with small head. Creamy dark chocolate malt flavor. Lighter mouthfeel than with some stouts. Extremely easy drinking - another great Bellís beer.

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

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Very sweet lactose smelling. Soft roasted palate with even a touch of tartness. Rolled oats and coffee ice cream flavors abound. I wouldíve thought this was 4-5% alcohol. Hearty and full of flavor, a dessert in and of itself.

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Deep black pour with an unfortunately short caramel-colored head. Aroma was heavy on the roasted malts.. with chocolate dominating. Powerfully smooth and well-coating on the palate. Coffee-like bitterness on the finish. Flavor was sweet with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Very fine all around! Only problem I have with it is that I just bought one :(

Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours a deep dark darkness with mocha head and decent lacing. The aroma is light with roastiness and faint charred malts. The varied malt bill comes through in the flavor that starts roasty to burnt and slowly becomes sweeter with sweet caramelized malts mixed with chocolate and vanilla. The vanilla gives it a faint cream soda sensation that Iím not a big fan of in a beer. It ends with burnt malts and chocolate malts.

Scopey (6726) - 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.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with old copper penny highlights and a thick tan head. Aroma sets my mouth watering: chocolate liqueur, milk, treacle. Flavour is like liquid brownies from the pan, chocolatey, a little doughy, creamy and delicious.
