Pours dark brown almost black with off white head, aroma includes notes of roast, some caramel, burnt malt. Taste is light with notes of coffee, roast, touch of caramel, and a burnt finish. Not bad, would like a bit more flavor but its decent. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours black with a tan head, aroma is of sweet malt with some notes of chocolate, flavor is decent but it seems a little thin overall, nice chocolate touches in the finish. douglas88 (9408) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 ounce bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a black/brown color with a medium off-white head. A rich milky and chocolate nose, some roast. The flavor is a similar lactose driven stout, some chocolates, light toasted malts. Very nice. Nsanders (1149) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Black, nearly opaque. Very malty, roasted coffee flavor, a little smoky. Smooth drinking, sweet start with bitter finish. Aftertaste detracts. Medium heavy body, syrup-like. bpreo (2849) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2010
This one is a Stout, which means it can’t do any wrong to my tongue. Good job!

Bottle. Pour is thin brown black with a nice kahki soapy head. Aroma has a cheap coffee scent followed by malt and soy. Taste is watery coffee and malt with some faint bitters. Palate is thin water with a gritty and chaulky finish. vomit (260) - Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Schells? Close to German, "Schnell" which means "Quick!" Schnell, Schnell, get a Blatz, this Schells ain’t worth crap!" notalush (5883) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Pours nearly black, with a foamy tan head - some intense roast in the nose, with espresso, bittersweet chocolate, sweet cream - medium to light body for the style - the flavor reminds me of some of my early stout and porter experiences when I first got into beer (London Porter, Shakespeare Stout) - quite a bit of chocolate and anise, with moderate roast and mid to low bitterness - lingering cream sweetness in the finish - not as intense as most look for in a stout, but pretty tasty and balanced. mothman (120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Poured into a pint glass.
Color is deep black, slightly brown when held up to the light. Thick brown head, that leaves great lacing.
Aroma is of smoked/roasted malts along with slight grassy hops. Some chocolate as well.
Taste is of smoked almonds. Chocolate flavored. The grassy hops become more present. Finally, a burnt caramel taste is noted.
Mouthfeel is a little bitter at first from the hops, but then it becomes smooth and creamy. Full bodied. Decent amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a very easy to drink for a stout. I could easily enjoy a few of these. This is a must try if you are into lighter stouts.

Thin dark brown pour with a frothy tan head. Aroma of mild chocolate malts and coffee. The body is a bit thin for a stout, with the flavor following suit. Light in carbonation, hops, and alcohol. Moderate coffee and chocolate content.
