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 nice pitch black with aromas of coffee and chocolate. Very nicely balanced with a slight bitter aftertaste. A very well done stout.

alobar (3727) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle. Thanks to richlikebeer. Pours a dark black color with minimal tan head. Aroma of coffee, malts, chocolate, caramel and molasses. Taste is complex with caramel, malts and molasses dominating. Coffee and chocolate could be found in the aftertaste. This is a phenomenal stout!

12oz bottle. Nice oily mouthfeel with chocolate and molasses. A hint of espresso in the nose. As times goes on I get more of an alcohol flavor. Another solid beer from Bells.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 6, 2006
12 oz bottle thanks to Duane. Pours super black with a chocolate brown head. Aromas of chocolate, and molassas. Flavors were classic stout. Some chocolate, but room for roasted malts and a decent hop bittering. Good Good Good.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. I made the mistake of drinking Bellís Expedition Stout before I tried this one, and compared to Expedition, this was seemed a little watered-down. A good, drinkable stout nonetheless.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of deep, rich arabica bean coffee - fresh ground. Nice black stout with coffee ice cream colored head. Really delicious, rich and smooth, hits good dark chocolate and cofee notes, a hint of booze. Good stuff.

core (19) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2006
12 oz bottle. Aroma is of roasted malts and slightly sweet. Flavor is more malt and a little coffee with a dry finish. My favorite stout at this time - it would be tough to improve on.

jercraigs (10302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Black body, big frothy creamy dark khaki head. Nice brewers lace. Dry aroma of cocoa and dark malt, touch of alcohol. Flavour is quite dry with a mild roast that is not strong but pervasive. Dark chocolate is more obvious as it warms. Medium to full bodied palate would feel creamier if it were not so dry. Bit disappointing. It is a nice stout, but the Expedition is substantially more to my liking.
