On-tap at Flying Saucer Charlotte served in a standard pint glass a deep opaque black with a nice frothy khaki head that lasts and leaves great lacing on the glass. Aroma is some mild roasted malts and not much else. The taste is a wonderfully smooth kick of roasted malts with nice subtle cocoa that leaves a wonderful finish. The beer is quite light, crisp and smooth with nice carbonation. This is a great stout, one I've been overlooking for a few years.

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.
