Syrupy, dark brown body with a prominent, malty, chest nut colored head.
Faint hints of malt and licorice.
Medium-heavy with noticeable carbonation and plenty of fizz going down. Doesn’t feel heavy like the coloration and consistency might suggest.
Definitely a very slight licorice taste up front with a bit of grain, almost a hint of rye. Nothing very strong or dominating stands out, but a very sharp, tasty beer in its relative simplicity.
This a great, quality tasting stout, especially given the good price I picked a bottle up for on a whim. Often it seems stouts can be a little heavy on coffee or chocolatey tastes, but there was none of that noticeable to me in this beer which works to its benefit. Because of its fairly low profile, but all around crisp and relatively mild flavor, it’s definitely something I could drink with some regularity. I will certainly be purchasing it again in greater quantity in the future.

Gainesville House of Beers - on-tap
A - black as night. Thin tan head. Looks beautiful, the way I like my home brewed stouts to look.
S - nice roasty/smokiness. Caramel malts evident. Some cocoa in there too.
T - starts out with this nice roasted maltiness. Has chocolate coming out next with some coffee as well. Not as impressive I guess as I had thought.
M - full body but not as oil thick as other stouts. Drinkable and not too heavy.
O - I like it, not even close to some of Bell's other stuff (can you compare anything to Black Note).
