Now this is what I had expected out of Bell’s DCS, a very creamy and tasty stout indeed. Coffee and cream dominate the nose and mouth, and very thick feeling in the mouth. Up there with Moloko plus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very deep brown, just barely translucent beer with a very thin head that dissipated within several seconds. The first thing I noticed was the aroma. A deeply roasted aroma that smelled strongly of coffee and perhaps dark chocolate. The beer filled my mouth in the best possible way, and wasn’t unpleasantly bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with brownish head. Aroma of coffee and hint of chocolate. Surprised by the flavor which was dominated by chocolate, and strong, not typical of a milk stout. Smooth finish, perfect beer with dessert.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mini growler from Half-Time. Pours a deep brown to black with hints of crimson at the edges. Hefty tan head which drops to half volume fairly quickly. Piles of roasty malt with a hint of smoke and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit sweet. Finishes with a bit of roast, though a little more subtle than I’d like.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This Milk stout is roasty, with a great body. It isn’t too chewey though. It’s too sweet, which might need more hops to balance.

Bottle. Black colour with a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet, roasted malt with some chocolate. Sweet, roasted flavour with notes of cocoa and coffee. Medium-bodied, long roasted aftertaste and quite smooth mouthfeel. Very tasty stout.
