Pours very dark blackish, with a great head and great lacing. Smells of coffee, prunes, dark chocolate, cognac, and licorice. Tastes very roasty and creamy malty. Finishes very smooth, with a creamy, roasty flavor. Very bold. This one reminds me of the Lancaster Milk Stout. Very nice beer.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Bottle @ home. Dark black/brown appearance with a small brown head. Dark roasty brown malty, nutty, light espresso nose. Creamy mouth feel. Dark roasty, light chocolate malty flavor with some coffee, nuts, and toffee. Sweet, creamy, nutty, coffee finish. Excellent beer.

DuffMan (10423) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with old copper penny highlights and a thick tan head. Aroma sets my mouth watering: chocolate liqueur, milk, treacle. Flavour is like liquid brownies from the pan, chocolatey, a little doughy, creamy and delicious.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a good sized creamy brown head. The aroma is sweet chocolate with notes of roasted coffee. The flavor is a solid mix of roasted malt and creamy sweet chocolate. Full bodied, sliky smooth finish. Coffee in the finish. This is a solid winter offering by Bells.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
2009-07-19. Pitch black body, nice tan head faces. (3+) Aroma of roast malt, touch of coffee grounds. (6+) Flavour is sweeter than expected from the nose, touches of roast and mocha overtones, but not a lot of roast bitterness, sweet malty middle. Smooth medum plate is lightly carbonated. Aged a bit longer than planned, but it is a decent stout. Aged Bottle via ChicagoDRI trade.

12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. All right, out of the gate, I just have to say that for such a nice beer, people aren’t putting any effort into the ratings. This beauty pours a really dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head that leaves some really cool lacing behind. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, earthy hops, dark fruits, coffee, a little smoke, vanilla, and molasses. Flavor of chocolate, fudge, vanilla, earthy hops, berries, grass, sweet roasted malts, metal, and cola. Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that’s hard to characterize- maybe sweet roasted cherry juice. That doesn’t make any sense. Anyway, this is a really nice sweet stout, and I’m starting to wonder if I mix this and Expedition Stout if I will get the highly sought-after beer with such high ratings. Maybe. Expedition Stout is better by itself. I’m going to see what equal parts will do...
