COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry stout with chocolate notes and hints of oak. A cross culture of three different yeasts during fermentation delivers a delightfully different body with a soft finish

This beer is absolutely fabulous. The flavors attack your tongue as in a tidal wave. Hops, roasted malt and grain flavor all hit you at once with rippling backcurrents of wonderful malt complexity. The finish is incredibly tight, everything coming back together at the end leaving your mouth hanging in anticipation for the next sip. An absolutely amazing bottled stout.

(12-01 re-rate) My original rating was a little low so I bumped it up a bit after trying Trumpeterís again. A dark, dry stout with a slightly bitter finish. I found this stout to be a little hop heavy (relatively speaking). It had a floral, burnt aroma and a silky, bubbly mouthfeel. Another great Bellís stout.

As I have said, I am not a stout nut, but this is Bellís and they are turning me. A bit more bitter and more complex than Susieís. I liked it not as much as Susieís but still a great beer.

Great stout. A bit of chocolate and coffee flavors. I like it.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2001
A thin and fairly bland malt with notes of black licorice in the aftertaste. Smooth, but not incredibly innovative.

Had this one directly after the Susies Sweet. A bit more of a bitter chocolate flavor and less of a malty sweetness than the Susie. Tasting all these stouts certaintly works on your tasting abilities.

Sweeter than their Kalamazoo Stout. Strong coffee flavour, very good.

It boggles the mind! Robust flavor so complex I still am amazed. Worth the wait for sure.
