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.

Pours a pitch black with a brown frothy head. Very caramelly aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts very prevalent as well. Exquisitely complex and wonderfully warming first sip. Great Great stuff. Get some itís an awesome experience!!!

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 I was starting to wonder if I even liked Stouts anymore. Either bored to death by Guinness or tortured by Imperial Stouts that try too hard but end up offering out-of-balanced, overly hopped, sticky goo (i.e. Bells 7000). I know that many people rave about stouts that are completely over the top on this site, but, personally, they end up being more work then their worth. K-stout is almost perfect (for a stout). Tan head. Delicious sniff of coffee and roasted malt. Creamy, just a touch of flower like hops balance out a great tasting maltyness. My faith in stouts have been restored.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2006 12oz bottle. Packaged on June 21st, 2005. An amazing stout. Itís borderline íimperialí. Bells never seems to dissapoint. Aromas dark chocolates, slight coffee. Taste is the same. Very creamy smooth. Dark as night with a beautiful tan head lacing that glass. As far as the style goes, itís one of the best. Two thumbs up, and one bottle down.

Roasted coffee and chocolate with hints of molasses and burnt brown sugar...very, very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Another great stout by Bells.

Deep black color with big dark brown head that dissipates to leave a hint of lacing. Aroma is subtle, with roasted malt backbone with hints of vanilla and cream, and a slight saltyness reminiscent of soy sauce. Flavor is roasty, smooth, creamy, slightly acidic, with a subtle interplay of sweetness and faint bitterness in the finish. A very nice stout, smooth, subtle, slightly sweet.
