A - Black or very deep brown in color, completely opaque. Light brown head fades to a thin film. A few small dots of lacing.
S - Rich dark fruits and burnt sugar, along with sweet cream and vanilla. Smells like creme brulee... with some dark fruits.
T - Starts out very creamy, a mild dark fruity sweetness with a hoppy bitterness follow quickly. Dark fruits become lighter, sweeter, like grape juice. A quick hit of a coffee like flavor and then a creamy and rich dark fruity finish.
M - Medium consistency with light carbonation.
D - A rich beer to sip, rich flavors with not a ton of alcohol.

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.
