Bell's rocks, and so does this beer that seems kind of intimidating to those who don't typically drink stouts. It's timid yet full of flavor.

On tap at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark black, with a little bit of visible carbonation near the top of the glass, a small half inch head, and some small splotches of lacing down the glass.

Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, and some slight coffee.

The taste is similar. There's a nice interplay between subtle mild chocolate and coffee flavors, and more overaching roasted malt flavors. More bitterness than sweetness here.

Medium bodied, pretty full and thick, creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

This one's great, I think it's draft only, so it's nice to get a chance to try it.

Draft at Bells. Pours black with tan head. Lots of chocolate and dark fruit in the nose. Taste is earthy oatmeal, sweet/roasted malt, chocolate. Nice sweetness but not overly so for a "Sweet Stout". If you told me this was an Imp Stout I would have believed you. Heavy body, rich and warming.
