From notes. Had this on Christmas day. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a clear pint glass.
A-Pours an almost black hue with a one + finger, creamy tan head with modest retention and lacing.
S-I find the aroma too subdued for style. What's there are some roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and brown sugar. Good, all. Just not enough.
T-Taste is satisfying, just not spectacular given the effort and lengths Bell's seemed to go to produce this beer. The dark roasted malts provide a very pleasing chocolate, coffee, and vanilla complexion, but, again, not robust enough.
M-Just a tad too light and thin.
D-This is not a bad beer, but I am not disappointed this is not available to me in the PNW. My sister-in-law brought this out from Ohio when she visited for Christmas.
