Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James and Tony. Pours a deep, thick brown-amber with a tall, quickly diminishing amber head. Aroma of vanilla, cream, oats, milk, coffee, honey, toffee, caramel, tart cherry, figs, toasted malts, barley, and hints of maple. Firm, yet supple body with a soft, creamy, smooth palate. Outrageously delicious stout.

Just as a top notch stout should be with hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. It has a great after taste that stays in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Kennyshomebrewing.blogspot.com

Bellís has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you canít go wrong. And, a nice stout for those not into stouts. A sweet tasting stout with a chocolate malt aroma. Pours a deep, rich black color with little head. A silky, creamy texture with little carbonation that is long on the finish. Best sipped and savored, not chugged!

One of Bellís all around best brews. Naturally itís better on Draft but is easily one of the better stouts out there

Bells special double cream stout. Will get this again. Good winter beer and a new favorite porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It pours a dark brown sugar color, with not much head. It has a slightly bitter, yet sweet, chocolaty taste in the beginning. Better yet, it actually has a taste that lingers around well after, turning more roasty at the end. Delicious for the winter.

Bells sure does like their dark beers. Works perfect for me! This is is especially dark, meant for dark days and dark treats. Exceptionally good. A+. Get it. Drink it!

This is close to perfect for me. They do not use lactose in this beer, all the flavor comes from 10 malt varieties used in perfect conjunction. Smooth and rich with no high or hot alcohol, make this one a year round Bellís!
