This one has been in my fridge for a while, and may not have been at its peak (bottled 1/2012). However, I found nothing wrong. It poured dark brown, almost black. Just lacing for the head. It had the aroma of brown sugar, chocolate, and a slight hint of worchestershire sauce/soy. The taste was full, with dark chocolate, a slight taste of molasses and cinnamon, and a smooth finish. It goes down well and easy.

Luvystypotables (1651) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Not up to Bell’s standard, an aroma of malt and coffee with a hint of smoke, pours a dark brown color with a lasting tan foamy head. A dry feel with a bitter coffee taste and dry bitter chocolate finish.

Rami Rami is drinking a Special Double Cream Stout by Bell’s Brewery at Hostal Plaza De Goya Z 12/01/15. Niewiele ciala, ale poza tym bardzo fajny, slodkawy, owocowy, nieco palony, pumperniklowy. Troche jak dobry baltycki. Bdb+

humlelala (1307) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2016
(35 cl bottle from Mikkeller Bottleshop bought for 7€ in May 2016; Packaged on: 12/01/15) Poured at fridge temperature into a Maisel&Friends stemmed tulip reveals a pitch black body with one finger of tan head that fades somewhat yet sticks around and leaves plenty of beautiful lace. Good regeneration. Aroma seems harmonic with well integrated notes of toasted malt and chocolate. Definitely creamy texture with soft carbonation, medium body and a roasted finish with a little drying ascerbicity toward the end. Generally it’s kept in check in the flavour by just the right amount of sweetness. Supremely well balanced and understated refinement in flavour and aroma.

Lilja (2785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2016
Flaska från Mikkeller Webbshop. Smak och doft av karamell, kaffe, rostade malt, vanilj, bränt socker med toner av aska. Fadd, lagom sötma, fin balans mellan smakerna. Gott!

It pours black with a brown moderate head. It has aromas of chocolate, expresso, and a bit of roast. There are flavors of chocolate, roast, oats and a bit of vanilla. It is somewhat creamy with a moderately bitter finish. It has a full body. Overall this is a chocolate and creamy driven stout.
