Pours a five finger brown head that fades to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Black color. Light-medium carbonation and heavy bodied. Chocolate nose. Starts with a roasted/burnt chocolate flavor, some sweetness, nice stout. $1.89 for a 12oz bottle from Chalet Party Goshen, In.

Don't know why this beer is only rated at 89. I found it to be close to perfect, and I am not a stout guy.

Very subtle coffee, chocolate, and roasted notes hit the nostrils upon opening.

Very pleasant, very drinkable, and extremely well balanced.

A sessionable brew and every day drinkable. Great job, Bells.
