4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a very nice stout. Rich, deep brown body, and an attractive, light brown head (too bad it didnít last longer). Very nice lacing, though. Dark chocolate and espresso aroma, with a flavor profile to match. Pleasant, bitter aftertaste. Better carbonation than others of this style. When youíre in the mood for a stout, donít hesitate to ask for this one.

Bottle from Santa. Dark brown with no head. Good roasted flavors and aroma. Smooth on the palate.Some hops but not much, bitter finish. I think I should try this beer again as I had Bellís Java stout right before I had this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown almost black with a nice pillowy brown head that dissapates mostly. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, and a little coffee and caramel with a touch of hops in there as well. Taste is about the same. Mouthfeel was a bit thin but not bad.
Another solid beer from bells.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours medium thick, dark black with a deep tan head that thins out and lightens up; good lacing. Aroma of sweeter roasted malts, licorice and molasses. Flavor of roasted malt, espresso, molasses (for a touch of sweetness) and some chocolate. Smooth taste with a bit of lingering malt/espresso flavor. An excellent roasty stout; highly recommended.

I actually liked it better the Expedition Stout. Smoother and just as flavorful. Overall a fantastic beer.

Pours a very dark brown with a nice smallish tan head, nice lacing. Strong chocolate and some coffee, strong roastiness. Thick palate, full mouth feel. A little sweetness, quite a bite at the end. Not quite my style.
