This is one of Bell’s weakest stouts, in my opinion, but it still is a solid go-to for the value in price in the stout category. Compared to the Java Stout or even Kalamazoo by Bell’s, this one is a little more on the extra-bite side. With all of that being said, this is still a quality beer that has a lot going for it. Pours a nice dark head and has decent aromas of chocolate and caramel.

jsmerig (1472) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a deep near black brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee roasted and smokey. Taste is sweet up front with a creamy mouthfeel that carries the beer from sweet to roasted with a clean finish and residual smokiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keanex (1760) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2015
On tap at Barcade Philly.
Appearance: Pitch black body, creamy tan head.
Aroma: Very light aroma highlighting the lactose. Reminds me a bit of chocolate milk.
Taste: Mellow flavor as well, light chocolate milk presence.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Nice to drink, doesn’t impress, but I’d order it again.
