UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 a great tasty stout. chocolatey body with roasty aroma, it’s creamy, rich, and very drinkable. cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2006
One of the best stouts out there and for the value one of the best beers available in our area. I enjoyed the silky, black pour with the brown head. I also enjoyed the roasted malt flavor. Pretty full bodied and I would put it just a notch below the outstanding imperial stouts such as Storm King, Siberian Night, and Old Rasputin. DJC (238) - USA - DEC 11, 2006
This is a very nice stout. Rich, deep brown body, and an attractive, light brown head (too bad it didn’t 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 you’re in the mood for a stout, don’t hesitate to ask for this one. Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2006
12 oz. bottle from a 6 pack bought at liquor barn. Pours black and silky, with a very little to no head at all. Aroma is all roasted malt with a slight hint of chocalte. Taste is malty but smooth with a strong roasty aftertaste. Very good. Ty5592 (1024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2006
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 Bell’s Java stout right before I had this one.

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. Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Pours muddy black with an average sized brown rocky head. Aroma is malty: roasted malts, and dark chocolate, lightly hoppy of flowers. Flavor is moderatly sewwt and lightly bitter, finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, creamy, softly carbonated. Clean finish perfectly carbonated, excelent. mreusch (858) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 4, 2006
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. ogglethorp (919) - Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours ultra dark with small tan head, with nice lacing. Aroma is deep dark chocolate, roasted coffee, burnt caramel. Taste is the same, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, burnt caramel, with some sweetness poking through. Thick creamy palate. Great all the way round! This is my standard for the style.
