12oz bottle. Poured a nice dark black, with a small to medium chocolate head. Syrupy on the pour. Aroma chocolate, with caramel and molasses. Light malt and some vanilla as well. Taste was good; cream and chocolate. Very smooth. Sweet and malty. Pretty good, better as it warmed.

Very opaque black body, tan head. Creamy rich malty flavour, not too much lactose, and a fabulous creamy palate.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2006
12 oz bottle. Opaque black color with thick oatmeal colored head that settled slowly into a thin foamy cap. There was much lace on the glass at the end. Light vanilla and chocolate aroma reminiscent of chocolate chip cookie dough. Every once and a while I also get a whiff of root beer and roasted malt. Slightly sweet up front. Flavor is dominated by roasty, chocolatey malt with a strange stale coffee note at the end. I prefer the Kalamazoo Stout.

Holdwine (1205) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Again with the motor oil, but what a stout. Maybe over ice cream? Complex mouthfeel and a ton of sweetness. Vanilla, coffee, whipped cream, this one has it all.

vyvvy (6131) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Pours almost black with a dark brown head - very nice. The aroma has dark roasted malt that is almost charred. There is lots of creaminess with some dark fruit traits and traces of coffee. Medium / full body with some sharp carbonation. It is lightly grainy and somewhat creamy. The taste starts with heavy cream and roasted malt - milky, thick and rich. The finish has a crisp blast of carbonation and some spiciness then it goes back to the malty goodness. Another well done stout from Bellís.

Pours black with a thin creamy darker head. Aroma is roasty with strong chocolate. Taste is thick and creamy with sweetness and evident chocolate hints. Very good sweeter stout.
