Ok I love this beer. I could drink it all day long. Pours nice and black with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, malty, cereal. Flavor is smooth, rich and balanced. tastes of coffee, vanilla, malt. What a brew.

Comes out of the tap a deep opaque sable with a thick tan head. Rich, smoky, mocha aroma fills the nostrils and hollers "Drink me!" Smoky coffee and chocolate flavor has yeasty and toffee hints. Texture is thick, firm and oily, leaving a lively tingle. It leaves a nice roast coffee finish. A must for all stout fans.

Black with a big frothy brown head. Good lacing. A wonderful chocolate and roasted malts aroma. Medium to heavy body, has a nice chocolaty, vanilla, creamy taste with a light to medium bitter finsh. One of the best stouts I’ve had in a long time and at a very reasonable price.

I had this next to 3 Floyd’s Molokolo Stout and Bell’s killed that one! Rich, creamy, notes of bitter chocolate and coffee, a slight bit of sweetness. Two thumbs up. Don’t buy into the 3 Floyd’s mind game!

The best stout I’ve had. I found it at a little restaurant in WI on tap and I can’t get it out of my head. Beautiful balance of chocolate and coffee in the background behind a rich, silky texture.

Bell’s has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you can’t go wrong. And, a nice stout for those not into stouts. A sweet tasting stout with a chocolate malt aroma. Pours a deep, rich black color with little head. A silky, creamy texture with little carbonation that is long on the finish. Best sipped and savored, not chugged!

One of Bell’s all around best brews. Naturally it’s better on Draft but is easily one of the better stouts out there

Bells special double cream stout. Will get this again. Good winter beer and a new favorite porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting session @ Budapest. Aromas of nutty, roasted malts, roasted chocolate, lactose, vanilla, nougat. Taste is chocolate sweetness with caramel and nutty notes. Mouthfeel is a bit too light bodied with moderate carbonation.
