For a beer with 10 different types of malt in it this was a disappointingly one-dimensional beer. Faint aroma of coffee and liquorice, and with a taste of cold coffee and mollases. Really malt sweet upfront, but a thin, watery body - nothing like the fat, chewy character of its big brother the Expedition Stout. A poor relation in my book.

벨스 브루어리 - 스페셜 더블크림 스타우트 6.1% ABV 별로 스페셜하지도, 별로 더블 크리미 하지도 않은 스타우트 맥주. 놀라운건 레이트 비어 기준 99점이라는 것이다 최고점이 1000점이었을리ᇛ 없고.. 원래 칼라마주라는 1세대부터 활약하던 브루어리인데, 그래서 빨아준건가 싶기도 하고, 오래전부터 점수가 쌓여서 그런건지 싶기도 하고, 하여간 타베로그도 그렇고 음식평에 있어 점수는 믿을게 못된다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

(draft) A nice roasty chocolate flavor. The extra alcohol, as compared to similar stouts, seemed unnecessary to me, and annoyed me a little. A beer this good doesn’t need the alcohol gimmick.

Great beer. I have never tried anything from Bell’s brewery but look forward to discovering other great beers.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Cask at Fries Cafe. Pours black with a nice creamy head and excellent lacing. Chocolate and sweet malts in the nose with excellent roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, fruit, and smoke on the tongue. Medium bodied, smooth, and creamy with lingering balanced roast. A terrific stout.

Aroma is of strong coffee with cream in it. Besides the temp, I’m not sure I could have told the difference. Appearance is jet black with a medium tan head. Taste is of coffee, chocolate, and some hops.

Pours a dark, almost black cola colour with quickly dissipating tan head. Has a smooth, milky finish with a roasted malt, chocolate, lactose and coffee flavor. Aroma of malts, sweet chocolate and coffee. Nice sweet stout!

On tap at Ashley’s Westland. Bell’s is the best. This is a very smooth creamy/chocolatey/coffee stout. Somewhat lower rating due to poor finish.

batch 8150 - very faint aroma, a dry plywood scent. Very woody taste. Burned wood, roasted creamed coffee, dry woody malts. Not sweet, smooth at fiirst, and a little harsh going down. I had very high expectations for this, so maybe thats why i’m a little disappointed. I don’t taste much of any cream. A little bitter in the finish also, which i don’t care for in stouts.

A fine stout. Smooth, with a chocolate/coffee taste. Drank half and had the other half with chocolate ice cream. WOW!
