Bell's Kalamazoo Stout. Long time drinker, first time reviewer.

Midnight in a glass poured into a Chimay Goblet. Tan, root beer float head, dense and creamy. Lacing like spackel to be chiseled off the walls of the glass. Perfect.

The aroma starts spicy and fruity, showing the generous hops that go into this masterpiece. Milk chocolate and clove fill out the graceful yet full aroma.

The taste has amazing complexity. Smoke, chocolate, cloves, graham cracker, almonds, hazelnuts, milk chocolate, oak, dark fruit, it's all together in a whirlwind of flavor.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, without being heavy.

The drinkability is great. All nighter, everyday.
