12oz bottle from Plaza liquors in Tucson pushkinwow (2961) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Appearance: Pours black with a small tan head and some light lacing
Aroma: Roasted malts, sweet roasted coffee and chocolate
Taste: Dark malts, chocolate with roasted coffee in the finish
A nice sweet stout, easy to drink and smooth.
12oz bottle. Dark brown with a mocha creamy head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate but mild. Nice and creamy, medium bodied, nice carbonation, slightly bitter at the beginning with a hint of sweet which disappears as you swallow, becomes more bitter, malty and some hops. A good beer although not as sweet as I would have expected (not a bad thing though). weihenweizen (4208) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours opaque coal black with very small dark brown highlight and one and a half inch light brown head. Some lacing, thick cream body, and well carbonated. Taste is burnt malt, coffee, some chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and light bitter chocolate finish. Pretty good and very creamy. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle. Very solid beer. Night black color, cappucino foam on top. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste is coffee, bitter chocolate, hint of licorice, with a slightly tangy finish, then more lingering bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. No flaws with this one really. MBrausen (69) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2012
This beer was poured from a 12oz bottle into a Town Hall sniffer.
A. The beer pours a pitch black. About 2mm of a tan head, that faded relatively quickly. Minimal to no lacing on the glass.
S. Smells of mild chocolate, toffee and smoke and light coffee.
T. Strong toffee/vanilla sweet taste. The sweetness never really fades from your mouth. Smooth, but almost a little bit bitter.
M. Full bodied, but a thin feeling on the tongue. It meets it claim, and is a creamy smooth tastes.
O. Overall it is a good beer. I wouldn’t have a problem ordering this in a bar. However I wasn’t blown away by the flavor. It seemed to be very one sided. The initial cream sweetness holds through, but not as many other flavors come out after. I feel like even with a year under it’s belt, this beer might not round out.

This is one of Bell’s weakest stouts, in my opinion, but it still is a solid go-to for the value in price in the stout category. Compared to the Java Stout or even Kalamazoo by Bell’s, this one is a little more on the extra-bite side. With all of that being said, this is still a quality beer that has a lot going for it. Pours a nice dark head and has decent aromas of chocolate and caramel. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Small aroma and bold appearance with strong cream tones and great mouthfeel.

Pours a deep near black brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee roasted and smokey. Taste is sweet up front with a creamy mouthfeel that carries the beer from sweet to roasted with a clean finish and residual smokiness.
