UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Black; rich roast in the nose. Slightly fatty body, light fruitiness (a function of the high gravity) - like cherries and grapes; long malty finish. Soft, smooth, slightly creamy and a little bit nutty. Kind of simple. TBone (17540) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Taska Gau, Ponce, PR. Dark, almost opaque color, tiny beige head. Coffeish, bready aroma. Medium-bodied. Light coffee, even light tart note. Lingering dark chocolate. Not in Bell’s standards. chrisv10 (17435) - DENMARK - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, medium sweet, liquorice and medium bitter. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2012
Bottle, thx to SecretSanta. A very dark brown beer, finger-thick tan to beige head on top. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee on the nose, more pronounced than for the Kalamazoo Stout. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with some chocolate and notes of beef stock. Full-bodied, smooth and dry. Roasted finish. As the Kalamazoo Stout, a bit one-dimensional, but certainly very nice. 110930 jtclockwork (16597) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Bottle thanks to secret Santa. Pours black with small tan head. Nose is milk, lightly toasted malts and creamer. Taste is very smooth cream, chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Very satisfying stout.

A: The pour is just about black. Very little highlights, if any, that I can see. A nice tan/mocha colored head perches itself on top.
S: The nose is full of roasted malt and sweet milk chocolate.
T: A very interesting flavor profile. A light roasted malt flavor with a very sweet finish. There is quite a bit of chocolate coupled with a mild bitterness.
M: A very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. The body is medium, and there’s a moderate level of carbonation.
D: The Milk/Sweet stout is a style that’s beginning to grow on me. Generally I am more of an RIS fan, but the sweetness is quite a welcomed change of pace. A great beer, and I’m glad I have another. Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2016

Rather nice porter roast aroma, some graininess. Lovely roasty taste, some mellow coffee aspect, pleasant huskiness. Super drinkable palate - full, but not heavy. Lovely dry bitter hops in the finish. The US is still absolutely nailing the porters. But this isn’t sweet, it’s really well attenuated, just how I like it.
Draught, 6.1%. Roasted aroma, sweet and salty liquorice. Black colour. Good stable brown head. The flavour is milder but fuller than the aroma. Good mild coffee note with only a little bitterness. Very creamy flavour and mouthfeel. Really good and well-balanced. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
