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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
