Draft at Bells. Pours black with tan head. Lots of chocolate and dark fruit in the nose. Taste is earthy oatmeal, sweet/roasted malt, chocolate. Nice sweetness but not overly so for a "Sweet Stout". If you told me this was an Imp Stout I would have believed you. Heavy body, rich and warming.

A: Pours a pitch black in color, that leaves a nice tan two finger head at the top, the lacing is present through the whole time.

S: Good nose on this one, oatmeal is present but more of coffee notes and roasty malts. This brew has a great nose to it, phenomenal.

T: Just like the nose, lots of coffee and roasted notes and the hops kick in on the tail end. Oatmeal is present, with nice touch of brown sugar.

M: Not as thick as I though it would be, but great anyway. Medium Bodied and slickness to it.

O: A great brew from Bell's once again, I was lucky enough to have this on tap when I visited bells on 4/6/13, I enjoyed it very much and would love to have more.
