Oh sweet creamy chocolate divine. yummy yummy in my tummy. This beer would make me sing if I were a guy who sang.
Appearance: Pours black with a creamy tan head and loads of lacing.
Smell: The aroma is rich with sweet cream and chocolate and a hint of butterscotch and caramel, dark fruit, and milk. Malty and simply appealing.
Taste: It is a super smooth sweet easy milk stout that is creamy for sure but sweet only to that point and it avoids becoming sugar sweet and holds at creamy sweet. mmm. There is a hint of cherry with the roasted grain undertone and them it simple slides down the throat. I, literally, am at a loss for words. The flavor is simple but yet just right.
Mouthfeel: Rich thick and full but not overweight. It is very thing I could ask for in a milk stout, it is creamy and velvety smooth with a distinct dryness on the edges.
Drinkability: There is something do easy and pleasant about drinking this beer, I can't help but to relax and feel better. It is more than the alcohol it it maybe it has to due with the chocolate in the flavor or the smooth silky creamy nature of the beer but I am certainly in the market for a case of this beer.
Hope this is helpful.

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.
