look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Nice dark brown/black color. Thick dark tan head that lasts a while and leaves some nice lacing.
S: Smells of chocolate, roasted malts and maybe a hint of caramel.
T: Very nice complex flavor. Starts with a sweet chocolaty taste that then moves into a roasted malty flavor. The beer finishes with some bitter flavors and maybe some semi sweet chocolate. Overall very nice.
M: Fairly thin beer. I was expecting and hoping for some more chew/thickness.
D: The beer is very drinkable. The great flavor would keep me coming back for more.
Overall: Overall the beer was very nice. I'm a big fan of the sweet stouts, so I wasnt disappointed when I tried this one. The flavor is complex and goes through phases of sweetness and finishes with a nice bitter flavor. Well done, I'd recommend this to all beer drinkers.

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.
