COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

12 oz bottle. Opaque black color with a tight light brown head that showed some lastinf power and laced the glass. Smells ofrich chocolate cake and vanilla cream. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a lasting roasty bitterness. Creamy, full bodied mouth feel with dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla, and coffee flavors. Yum.

One of the best stouts Iíve ever tasted! This is a beer for the holiday season! I you like your beer dark, you are doing an injustice to not try this. Thick and rich like coffee with not enough water. Chocolate, roasted malt, cofee, you name it its there! Gimme more!

Pours a dark black color with a brown head. Aroma is of molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Flavor starts off with the molasses, chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee. Gives way to the hops and slight alcohol warming. Flavor lingers awhile. Another very delicious Bellís brew.

On tap @ Mad Mex: Black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, and some chocolate. Flavor, coffee, a fruity sweetness, some chocolate, a bittersweet finish. Really nice of draft.

(Tap at Hop Devil) Black body, medium tan head with good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasts and roasted coffee beans. Really nice body full of creamy malts, like I was drinking a cake. Some liquorice/molasses/raisins add to the complexity. An enchanting stout that sounds like a spell from a Harry Potter book.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Batch 7532, in a trade with Hellomynameis - thanks Zac. Massive brown frothy head, opaque black pour, decent lace. Roasted coffee aroma. Smooth, full body for a very nice mouthfeel. Rich dark roast coffee flavor with hints of dark chocolateunctuated by peppery spice and some citrus zest. Nice dry finish. Very satisfying.

ExSpectator (65) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours black, perhaps not the darkest black iíve seen a stout, but definitely dark. Very strong aroma of roast, coffee, bitterness, I could smell it from several feet away. Dark malty flavor, chocolate is present. Very good.

gavygavgav (7) - Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2006 does not count
Strong complex aroma of coffee and roast, color is pitch opaque black with brown head. Pours a huge head which leaves good lacing. Bitter chocolate flavor, slightly sweet too. Great aftertaste, wonderful for sipping. Palate is somewhat less than the "creamy" descriptor. A great beer, definitely need to load up on these!

Dark brown appearance. Stong falvors of coffee, a little bitter, but in a good way, roasted toasty notes as well. chocolate and mollassas flavors in aftertaste.
