4.76/5 rDev +19.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5
pours a used motor oil black that i cant see any light through. about 1 finger of a brown mocha colored frothy head that dissapates rather quickly. leaving good lacing on the glass. the smell is straight roasted coffee almost a milky chocolate ,lactose type note to the smell. i dont detect any of the licorice that used in the brewing process. the taste is pure coffee and creamy chocolate. nice bitterness & roastyness. i get the licorice on the back of the tounge just faintly after a sip. mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy. this beer must be great on nitro tap if thats even available. overall a damn good stout! definatly something id pick up again. too bad the abv is a little to low for any real cellaring...cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. 5/1/14 is the freshness date
A: Pours black with with thick tan foam and tons of lace
S: malts and chocolate and coffee. The aroma is a bit weak but I can pick out the individual notes.
T: sweeter than I thought. cocoa and malts mostly with sweetness on the finish
M: Middle of the road but very drinkable.
O: not my favorite from bells but I wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me.

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a snifter.
Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Thin collar and a few stray streaks of lacing.
Smell - Roasty malt. Kinda ashy and burnt. Coffee.
Taste - A little more sweet than the nose suggested. Coffee malt. Roastiness builds into the finish. Very burnt and acrid in the back, but it's not excessive. Some sweetness lingers too.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very drinkable. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Very roasty. Intense and flavorful.
Serving type: on-tap
