look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

I poured into a pint glass to one finger of tan head. I would say that it is black. I smell coffee, roasted malts, and dark fruit, prunes. The taste is just like it smells. The mouthfeel is nice and viscous. This is another quality product from Bell's.

Cheers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
