I had been eyeing this for a while during my bi-annual trips to Minnesota and finally decided to splurge $12 for the six pack. I must say, just the name sounds delicious. Anyway, it poured like engine oil, and looks like it too. The head is small, but very cocoa colored. Awesome chocolate, coffee, and black licorice aromas. A tremendously thick and wholesome mouthfeel ensues. Wow! Tastes abound! Big coffee notes while silky smooth chocolatey flavors add definition. And there's just enough of a burnt edge to lend traction. It finishes dry and leaves the impression of just finishing a mocha expresso. There is a touch of sweetness in the back of the throat that just leaves you salivating for more! A showstopper!

A - Pours pitch black with a two-finger tan foamy head. Heavy lacing.
S - Roasted malts, sweet milk chocolate, and dark coffee.
T - Follows the smell. Roasted malts with sweet milk chocolate. Bitter coffee in the middle. Finish is smokey.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth drinking with a watery mouthfeel.
O - Very easy drinking roasted stout. A little more body would help out. Still very good.

Had this last night at the bar, I have not had anything from Bell's that I have disliked so far. This one I truly appreciated, since it is a cream stout that does not contain dairy. Nice smooth mouth feel, delicious chocolate flavor. This stout is pleasing, without being thick and is very easy to drink. I recommend it highly.
