A: midnight black. completely opaque. frothy, rich tan head dies down pretty quickly but leaves some nice lacing on the glass.
S: milk chocolate, lactose. smells like chocolate milk. definitely on the milk rather than dark chocolate spectrum. a little roast from the chocolate, but not a deep smokey roast.
T: more roast than chocolate on the palate. interesting contradiction. solid dark chocolate notes, but an acidic roast takes the main stage. a little bit of alcohol in there, giving a bit of warming in the finish.
M: all in the name, this one is definitely creamy. medium carbonation on a medium/full body.
D: i really enjoyed the mouthfeel on this brew. im assuming oats were used and they definitely add that creaminess that is mentioned in the name.

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.
