This brew was aquired in a trade with BrewerB.
A- Pours thick and rich with minimal head. It's color is dark, dark brown, verging on a light black color.
S- Coffee, lots and lots of coffee. That really seemed to be the only aroma I could pull out of this. The coffee was just in your face.
T- The taste was a little to straight-forward for me. Coffee. The typical stout roasted malts and chocolate were very faint. I liked the idea of a coffee stout, but it seems that the coffee is too overpowering.
M- Great thick mouthfeel with very low carbonation.
D- Not so much. Only average at best. The coffee just seems to be to overwhelming and after the first one, I had had enough.

The first Bells I've had was the Expedition Stout. I must say, that stout opened my eyes to this brewery, and I haven't been let down since, though I will say, the Expedition is the best thus far.
Look: Very little light can pass through. I just shined a bright flashlight through the opposite side of the glass and it turns only slightly red. A very dark stout.
Smell: Coffee right away. I'm not very sophisticated, so I don't smell much else. Just coffee.
Taste: Coffee. Probably one of the most up front coffee type stouts I've had. There is no mistake this stout is brewed with coffee. You won't think "is this brewed with coffee?" There is no question about it. I'm a big coffee drinker so I am very drawn to coffee stouts.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied at best. Maybe a little thinner feeling.
Overall: This is a very good stout. I would most definitely drink this again. I may buy it again if I see it. But I likely won't be on the hunt for it.
