Bell's Kalamazoo Stout. Long time drinker, first time reviewer.

Midnight in a glass poured into a Chimay Goblet. Tan, root beer float head, dense and creamy. Lacing like spackel to be chiseled off the walls of the glass. Perfect.

The aroma starts spicy and fruity, showing the generous hops that go into this masterpiece. Milk chocolate and clove fill out the graceful yet full aroma.

The taste has amazing complexity. Smoke, chocolate, cloves, graham cracker, almonds, hazelnuts, milk chocolate, oak, dark fruit, it's all together in a whirlwind of flavor.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, without being heavy.

The drinkability is great. All nighter, everyday.

well money has been tight so i haven't had the luxury to buy some good beer but i decided to splurge for something new. Beer pours darker than almost any other beer i can think of, its as dark as celebrator easily. It may be the darkest beer i've ever had. Smells of toffee and sweet roasted malt, with maybe some chocolate in there. Taste is fantastic as one would expect from bells, the alcohol is barely noticeable and the chocolate smell is much more pronounced in the mouth. It really is a good beer, and i'm going to savor this 6 pack.
