Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - Dark chocolate color, almost black. Pours with a nice brown colored head and diminishes immediately into slight brown film.
Smell - Rich, nutty aroma with a hint of smoke and molasses.
Taste - Nice smokey flavor with a touch of residual bitterness. Rich spicy flavor with wood-like notes.
Mouthfeel - Very smooth and creamy on the palate, even thicker as it goes down.
Overall - Extremely enjoyable and balanced cream stout. Not too overpowering, but rustic smoke flavor is apparent. Pleasant mouthfeel and texture. Great winter beer.

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.
