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.

A pleasure to be savored. Strong roasty taste- and a great, classic aroma.

Wonderfully thick and creamy stout with tasty roasted flavors of coffee and chocolate. One of Bells best.

Funny taste to this stout. Cherry Stout was much better.

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 Pours with traditional Bellís creamy top. Estery aroma is fruity with abundant roast to match. Fluffy and airy on the palate. Opens with a metallic sweep of malt and beefy licorice notes. Hugely charred toward the end, with black cherries soon bringing balance to the overall intensity. Finishes with black coffee and deeply earthy roasted malts. Has become overly grainy and worty in the last year. Not nearly as good as I recall.

Hugerat99 (25) - USA - JAN 31, 2002
Excellent! Robust flavor with a nice dry hopiness. I dare say a 6.5 ABV may be an underestimate.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Shares with the Bell's double cream stout an intial tanginess, coupled with moderate carbonation despite the lack of head (hey, how do they do that?). Then after the initial flavor rush you get full blown roasted flavor. Creamy, nice, very nice.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 A rich, opaque stout with nice coffee aroma. Indulgent flavors include hazelnuts, molasses, chocolate covered coffee beans and caramel malt. The finish is dry and refreshing. Very well balanced and always enjoyable.

billb (245) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2001
A pretty tasty stout. Roasted and coffee flavors are very apparent. This is a full bodied brew with a very rich mouthfeel and smooth finish. A very good stout.

Very dark. Very coffee-like aroma and a subtle chocolate flavor. Very good.

joet (2596) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 19, 2001
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2004 Another whalloping beer from Kalamazoo. Lots of dark roast ígrain hullí flavors, chocolate and small hints of acetic acid. Some light dough aromas. This is the most interesting Bellís I;ve had. Amazing full velvet feel slips away fairly clean and light with a bit of acid on the tail. The burned roast adds to the bitter-side of the excellent balance. lots of hoppy bitter melding with the roast bitterness. very nicw.
