Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2.50$
Appearance - Dark brown colour with a hugee size fizzy and frothy light brown head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for 5-6 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, nuts
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. There are also some roasted/toasted nut flavours and a light smokiness. It ends with a chocolatey aftertaste with some light lingering bitterness.
Overall - Another winner from Bell's. There is a nice balance of flavours and it tastes like it was made with quality ingredients. Not my favourite style of beer, but something I'm glad I tried.

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.
