Paid $1.79 for a 12oz. bottle
The appearence is just like it's counterpart, Bell's porter, where that it has a dark brown base a medium head that is light choclate colored, good retention and the lacing is there but not as ideal like it's Porter. The aroma is very impressive of coffee, milky, sweet, choclatey goodness...
The taste is great too, coffee with a side of cream and some sweetness, it's like they read my mind in how I personally like my coffee... It's good stuff, The mouthfeel is pretty damn smooth for a 7.5% stout, low carbonation is a plus as well. The drinkability is high on this, I could drink this down without knowing it had so much alc. in it. Very impressive!
Final Thought: Wow, Kalamazoo Brewing Co. may be the best one out there! Great tasty stout!

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.
