DocLock (9705) - 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.

jercraigs (9681) - 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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2011
12oz bottle. Light-brown one-finger head, nearly pitch-black color. Was putting this one off for far too long because I feared it would be too rich and thick for the summer, but it turns out that this is perfectly drinkable. Doesn’t taste too full, very smooth going down. Wonderfully gradual deep-malt aroma. Roasty, with a sweet aftertaste. Special, indeed.

slowrunner77 (9651) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 yet another stand-out stout from bells. pours dark brown, almost black - with an everlasting tight tan head. aroma of malted chocolate and coffee. feel is super smooth and creamy. lactic quality in addition to the chocolate coffee flavor gives it an ever so slight sour finish, which is the only thing preventing this very good brew from being a world beater. still one of the best cream stouts out there.

djd07 (9533) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is a faint light roast and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a strong vanilla flavor and cream. Easy to drink a good sweet stout from Bells.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
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.

DuffMan (9259) - 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.
