received yesterday from MABZ. I have looked forward to trying bell's stouts, this is the first I have seen.
head is dark tan, large depending on pour.
nose is distinctly roasted barley (unmalted I assume), typical for style. while the bottle notes brewer's licorice is used, i cannot pick it up in the nose. pleasantly burnt (not smokey) odors.
taste is a mildly sour roasted taste, a lesser sense of bright hops on top of this provide some balance, though the roasted side dominates. the glass does become more bitter/sour as it warms up.
perfectly decent stout, certainly worth trying.
