A sweeter, more subdued version of Kalamazoo Stout. Not much in the way of hop bitterness, and the malt profile is also less aggressive in comparison to the Kalamazoo. Still, this is an enjoyable stout and easy to drink. kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Bottle. Poured an opaque brown with minimal cola colored head, no lacing. Rich oatmeal amd roasted malt orama. The malt profile has a subtle sweetness and a strong dry bitterness that lingers. Good and easy to drink. Full and creamy mouth feel. Driftwood6 (214) - USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe. Not overly impressed. If I didn’t know better, I would never have guessed this is a sweet stout. Tasted very mainstream. Nothing that made me want another. Switched to the Expedition stout-- much better. DWestrick (758) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Good stout. Better than the Kalamazoo but not the Java or Expedition. Smooth and malty. Definite roasted finish Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle, batch 8150. Pours a motor oil black with half finger tan head that settles to a soapy layer. Nose is roasty malts and chocolate. Palate is a lot like it smells, with some coffee added for good measure. Medium mouth feel – not as creamy as I thought it would be given the name. I prefer K-Zoo over it, but it’s still a solid Bells Stout.

This was second of three Bell’s stouts I’ve just tried. This has a very powerfull aroma of dark roasted malts with notes of coffee. I couldn’t help but taste a bit of overly burnt bitterness that wasn’t only from the hops. This stout is average in my opinion. scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2008

Bottle batch 8314. Dark brown with a frothy tan head. Smells of sour tobacco juice and burnt malts. Smooth medium body. Nice blackened malt flavors with a lightly sweet milk chocolate taste to finish. The flavor was much better than the aroma here. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2010
This is a nice heavy beer that was sweet and good on the palate. Nice color and a good lacing after each sip. Good beer. GTAEgeek (2220) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2010
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours pitch black with a medium, brown head that leaves tons of lacing. The aroma is light coffee and chocolate, milk and caramel. The flavor is very sweet, with a background of cocoa bitterness. It’s smooth and silky. Overall a tasty and mellow stout.
