Appearance: Black dark with fairly retentive head that dissapeared quickly. This one is deep black, allowing virtually no light through at all.
Aroma: Roasty burned bitter aromas. Their is a hint of sourness that accompanies the roasted caramel smells. Very pleasant to sniff.
Taste: Full mouthfeel. The roasted somewhat bitter flavors are pleasing on the palate, and they linger for a bit after the beer passes down the tongue. Their are notes of cake-y sweetness that balance some of the coffeeish flavor.
Notes: If you like stouts then you'll like this one. Very solid, very drinkable big stout. Splitting a six pack of this on a cold winters day is good for the spirit. Trust me.

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.
