Very large, dark brown head. Great roasted flavour with a nice mix of chocolate and malt. Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2002
This one is wonderful. The aroma was not the best, but the taste, oh the taste. Coffee and chocolate roasted to high heaven. And its smooth and creamy. Very nice, indeed. krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2002
first,the label deserves a rating (or berating rather) : the etch-a-sketch wretch depicted is highly unsavory with his dishelveled hair and grimmacing countenance--looks like they packed him into a beer keg and rolled him down a rocky hillside. but be not distracted by inept graphics, the greatness dwells within: this stout pours like melted bittersweet chocolate, a tahini-brown head jealously guards the topside, apparently sealing in some of the aroma, because this one actually tastes more profoundly wonderful than a comparatively modest nose suggests (okay, i had a cigar i confess). but the flavor is like sex in an airliner: fucking close to heaven. great body of godiva, italian roast and merlot, gently sweet, loving tug of bitterness. next time i'll save the cigar for the after glow.

A good stout indeed. Intense roasted flavours. If there is one thing that Larry knows how to make it is stouts. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Tastes much like a dark roasted coffee. Dark, black color with a tan head. Not as bold as the Expedition stout, but still very good. Lots of flavor and easy to drink.

Very impressed with this brew as my first sampled from the Bells family of beverages. Not as thick as I had initially expected, but maintained a nice heas throughout the pint. Jfishback13 (275) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2002
A very good stout. I prefer this one over the expedition stout (which is much harder to find and twice the price). This stout is smooth, but still nice and rich. It's a bit oily, pours with a huge head, and is certainly enjoyed by me. Panzuriel (2371) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2002
Nice and full flavor with hints of sweetness and bitterness that fill out the edges of this drink. herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 16, 2002
Black pour with a thin tan head. Burnt coffee aroma with a very small touch of malt sweetness. Excellent palate, creamy and full. This is my first Bells stout and I'm very impressed.Toasted malt flavors with chocolate/coffee at the front and a little bitterness bringing up the rear. Excellent beer.
