Poured from a fresh growler
A- pours pitch black with just a thin ring if dark tan head that dissipates quickly leaving no lace.
S- sweet chocolate and cocoa powder, a bit of bitter coffee, maybe some raisin as well.
T- sweet and creamy chocolate with just a bit of vanilla and coffee. The finish is roasted, but very subtle. Not as smoky as a usual stout which leads to a softer, creamier finish.
M- medium body with moderate carbonation, very smooth mouthfeel, finishes slinky creamy
O- very drinkable with a pleasant chocolate linger on the back end. My wife hates beer, specifically stouts, and she actually didn't make her usually disgusted face when she tried this. The underlying roasted character gives it more drinkability and would be a good option for ose who don't quite have the palate for super roasted and smoky stouts.

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.
