Pours a dark brown almost black with a nice sized head of tan foam. Nose is cocoa and dark malt. The texture is full with good creaminess. Taste is full of cocoa, coffee and dark roasted grains. It has a nice finish that is not too sweet or too bitter. A well made stout that compares well to Guiness. Try it with with smoked cheese and crackers.
Decent stout that has a few minerally aftertaste and palate attackers, but generally will do the trick. milewide (2304) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Black color, medium body and average head. Aroma and taste are traditional stout roasted malt---dialed down to pretty bland. Little hop bitterness. dekester1 (369) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Poured a very dark brown - almost black - with a light tan head and minmal lacing. Aroma was of malts and coffee with a slight fruitiness. Taste was complex - roasted malts, nutty, coffee, chocolate hints and a light hop finish. Mouth was decent. Overall, a nice ’milder’ stout. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours black wuth brown head...coffee sweet arom...taste is light but not bad...nothing really special about this stout Beyond (23) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Dark brown pour, large tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Start is malty with caramel overtones, then reveals the chocolate & coffee flavors. Finish is smooth with no surprises. Not much bitterness, not an emphasis on hops. Pleasant, a brew for the summer months: light for a stout. felsenpils (183) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
This is the best of Schell´s lineup. That being said, it is still quite thin and unremarkable. The color is very dark, but that is about it. I have spent a good deal of time in London drinking Stouts and have never run across anything like this (which is a good thing). Ratman197 (15228) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle poured a clear dark rerddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roastiness, bitter chocolate and coffee. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of roastiness, coffee and light cocoa with a crisp lingering roasty finish. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2012
Bottle in hotel room. Dark brown appearance with a brown head. Roasty dark chocolate, cocoa, espresso, light vanilla aroma. Burnt dark roasty chocolate malty flavor with notes of char, wood, and smoke. Not bad. sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours dark brown with a small creamy head. This beer is sweet with a burnt roasted coffee flavor. It is creamy with hints of chocolate.
