A - Inky black with a tiny but persistent head.
S - Rich milk chocolate, and I do mean RICH... like half chocolate syrup and half milk. Reminds me of that white nougat stuff inside of a Charleston Chew.
T - Good balance of dark chocolate and sweeter milk chocolate notes with some heavily creamed and sweetened coffee (the way I like it).
M - Thick and milky. This one is solid and creamy, but hides it's strength well. I would have guessed that this was closer to 4% than 6%.
D - Good stuff, but not as mind boggling as some other Bell's brews (Two Hearted anyone?). I tried this at the good beer spot in town, and it may have been a little to chilled. I'd like to savor this in a snifter at room temp at home and give it another go.

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.
