Not special at all in my opinion. Not bad, but definitely not special. Creamy texture for sure with a nice fluffy head that stuck around for a while. Not as sweet as I expected, definite notes of chocolate and coffee but not at all strong or up front. Kinda subtle even.

12 oz bottle. Pours black in color with brown head. Not much aroma, malt, chocolate and coffee aroma and taste.

12-oz., courtesy the kind hospitality of BitBucket. Pours deep black with a thin off-white head. Tiny bit of sour funk on the nose. Almost wild yeast-like. Hollow body--roasty, but the emptiness makes the flavors too subdued. The attack and the finish just wither there. Not much happening. Really a disappointment.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Deep opaque dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and roasty, but not very strong. Taste is thin and bitter, with a sour coffee finish. Mouthfeel is rather thin and uncreamy, and the whole thing is rather disappointing. $4/12oz

This offering was a bit of a let down compared to other sweet stouts like Left Handís Milk Stout and Too Cream Stout.

grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2008
I was really expecting a lot more from this rated at 97%. It was smooth but lacking in flavor. I thought this was the weakest Bells Iíve tried. How this can be rated right below Rogue chocolate stout for sweet stout I donít know. Aroma is roasted coffee with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel watery and flavor leaves you wanting more. I thought this was an alright beer but not solid and definitely not top three percent in the world.

Aroma of coffee and milk chocolate. Appearance was brownish black with mocha head. Flavor of roasted coffee, milk chocolate and honey. Palate was bubbly. Decent.

VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2010
Black brew with a somewhat fizzy medium brown cap of average size and some slippery ropy lacing. Interesting aroma - sour cream, lactose, dull chocolate, hazelnut, something like cherries or closer to raspberries. Deep sniffs expose more of a richness and a deeper roast and a better milk feature. The oddness seems to hang around but if you breath so damn hard that you can actually manage to lift the beer up in the glass on negative pressure alone you can find your own personal nirvana. The taste is also on the same odd line of overlying sourness. Sour cherry/raspberry to be more precise. Richness underneath, sweet and caramelly a bit, milky, roasty. Finishes a bit tart.. is this normal?
