A strictly black pour with a thin mocha cap. Aromas of caramel, toasted hops, mocha, and coffee are all distincly present and making my mouth water. A very creamy brew with great toasty notes with a lactic finish that lets you know that the cream is ther. The carbonation is nice on the pallet and the full bodied brew is creamy and thick going down the hatch. The bittnerness does get a little harsh after a full pint and is actually a little mroe typical of a chocolate stout. Overall the beer is very drinkabel though maybe only slightly out of bounds with regard to style.
Serving type: on-tap

The beer comes in a black color with a scrumptious looking fluffy tan head that just stays.
The aroma has a good amount of medium roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate, oats, like Breakfast Stout, and actual creaminess of dairy.
On the flavor, the beer attacks of rich roasted malt along with a hint of dark dried fruit and in an extremely manner for this ABV and style. Almost like burnt wood and licorice. There's some bittersweet chocolate on the middle, then onto coffee grounds and a good roasted bitterness, along with a bit of creaminess.
The mouthfeel as expected is medium minus to light.
The beer is rich and robust and does not hold back despite it's ABV. A pleasant surprise from Bell's.
