Bells : Kalamazoo Stout
Appearance: Dark brown, pretty much black colored beer. Opaque but no sediment. Brown head forms and leaves some lace on the glass. Looks like a stout for sure.
Smell: Chocolate, charcoal, roasted malt, tobacco, and molasses. Appealing to the nose, this beer is on par with other good examples of the style with a strong aroma.
Taste: Big flavor of chocolate and black patent roasted malts. Chocolatey, hint if vanilla, molasses, iced coffee. Somewhat sweet flavor upfront but there are layers. Really nice flavors in this stout. Richly malty, but with enough sustaining bitterness to balance.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied ale that is as tasters say, chewy. This stout leaves quite a roasted malt impression on the palate. Well carbonated, fairly smooth and even between sweet, smokey and roasted.
Overall: One of the best American Stouts out there, period. This is definitely under rated, if given the time and opportunity I can drink these all day. Kalamazoo Stout can hold up well to an oily cigar.
Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a small mocha head that reduced to a small layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, smoke, earthy, roasted coffee.
Taste: Toffee and caramel up front with milk chocolate ash, roasted coffee, earthy, and bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and a little ashy bitterness.
Overall: Solid stout from Michigan. This brewery puts out some stellar beers.
