Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is an opaque black; zero light passed through when I held it to a lamp. Two fingers of dense, tan head developed and dissipated to leave a spotted and bubbly lacing, and a ring around the edge.
Smell: Roasted dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, coffee, and there is a hint of black licorice.
Taste: Smooth like an oatmeal stout, but it has a slightly bitter edge from the roasted characters. It mostly mirrors the smell: roasted dark chocolate, caramel, and a little coffee. Thankfully, the black licorice did not come through in the taste. I hate that stuff.
Drinkability: Pretty good. I like the fact the roasted malts do not dominate, but it is still a solid stout. It just tastes like a Bell's stout.
Serving type: bottle
