DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
Itís pitch black and the head is nougat colored, huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate a hint of licorice and berries. The mouthfeel is semi-oily. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, roasted bitterness, hints of coffee and a light sweetness. Itís smooth and delightful! Thanks you so much Linus_stick/Alan for this one, I cannot wait to taste the rest of the Bellís!! 2320

jercraigs (10080) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 2, 2008
330 mL bottle. Pours more formidable than the Kalamazoo Stout- used motor oil black with a menacingly dark tan head. Lacing is not too great. Aroma is red licorice, roasted malt, burnt sugar. Flavor is powerful with espresso, burnt sugar, cocoa powder, dark chocolate. Moderately creamy on the palate, almost watery. Aftertaste is short and neutral with some bursts of unsweetened dark chocolate. Reminds me a lot of Guinness Foreign Extra but loads more cocoa.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 BOTTLE: Dark brown/black pour. Aroma is chocolate, malt, and milk. Taste is creamy, roasty, chocolate, toffee, nice full mouthfeel. Great beer.

DuffMan (9747) - 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.
