On tap at the Landmark 1850.

Starring Bell's Kalamazoo Stout as...Blacula! Big, rocky, determined chocolate-colored head--about as good as a stout can look. Smells fairly caramelly and lactose-sweet, but not really strongly of anything. Tastes strongly of toffee, a roasted, buttery sweetness, with a little hint of rotten prunes and raisins underneath. Yeah, diacetyl+roasted+caramel=toffee. Mouthfeel is nice and full, creamy. Overall, easy to drink, but not especially interesting. The Java Stout is better.

Serving type: on-tap

bought a bottle at world market in lansing, michigan.
pours jet black it has a thick consistacy it kinda looks like oil with how it pours.
the aroma is very rich and roasty, i get some chocolate, malt, hint of alcohol.
the flavor is roasty, coffee, chocolate, malt.
the mouthfeel is a little thick but nothing you would not expect from a milk stout, fills the mouth and coats the inside.
