4.1/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Black in color with a dark brown head that foams up at the completion of the pour. Halo of a cap leaves some ok lacing. Cap is sustained by a heavy, almost cola like, carbonation level streaming to the top. Smells like a cup of coffee. I'm guessing there is some malt in there but the coffee smell really dominates. Coffee taste is front and center, followed by some bitterness and then a surprisingly smooth finish. Very creamy mouthfeel. Faint trace of the 7.5% ABV as it warms. As expected an excellent stout from Bell's.
