look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Draft at Bells. Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate. Taste is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, strong chocolate notes, hop bitterness. Not as balanced as the Expedition stout but a strong showing from Bells. Will come back for this one.

Draft from Local Option

A: Dark brown/black, slightly transparent. One inch mocha head dissipates quickly.

S: Roast, caramel, bitter hops

T: Caramel, roast, coffee bitter hops, sweet malt finish, coffee aftertaste.

M: Light, on par for the ABV

O: Good in between stout, better than most stouts, not as good as most RIS's though.

Had on 12/13/14 at Bell's on tap, it was pretty good... didn't wow me in any way.

On tap at Local Option. Pitch black color with light lacing. Aroma is subdued chocolate and roasted malts. Opened up as it warmed. Great mouthfeel and overall, a very solid stout from Bell's.
