Served in a Sam Smith pint glass.

In honor of International Stout Day I thought I would try a Bell's classic stout. Pour is black as night with a slight but fading mocha head. Aromas of roasted malts, faint hint of milk chocolate, and very bitter black coffee. Taste follows the nose with dark roasted malts that hit the palate first followed by lingering notes of bitter black coffee and bakers chocolate. Not picking up any Brewer's Licorice. Full bodied and decent mouthfeel.

Overall this is a touch bitter for my taste but a good benchmark American Stout nevertheless. Nice job Bell's.

Cheers!
