    It seemed unclear if Arabicadabra was going to be released again this year. I loved the initial year’s offering. The previously published release schedule for 2018 didn’t mention it by name, mentioning only a coffee stout. They cleared that up.

    @BellsBrewery: @Blogjackets Arabicadabra will reappear this fall - more to come soon!

    Ironically we just sold the last of our previous stock a few weeks ago. Interesting to know it will already be back soon.

    This is one of the best coffee stouts around.

    ...though I just noted that it's listed as a Milk/Sweet Stout.

    I passed it over in my imp stout craze last year. This year I'm very much more into lower abv beers, so I'll be waiting on this one.

    Had a full tour of the production brewery last week. They were brewing Arabicadabra, so there were bags of lactose and Carafa III in the brewhouse. At least one fermenter was already full, so yes it is on the way.

    I was there in July and saw barrels that were of great interest. Some had orange chocolate stout on the side and others Arggh! The latter smelled a like wonderful sweet rum. Can’t wait to see those on tap and in bottles.

    Bells had a rum barrel stout at gabf last year that was tasty.

    I hope it actually reaches my area this time. I looked all over for it last year and never found it. A coffee milk stout from Bell's would be an insta-buy.

    Arabicadabra is a terrible name. Good beer.

    It's a sobriety test. If you've had so many you cant say the name in two tries you probably shouldn't drive.

    Already had a couple bottles a few weeks ago. Loved it a lot more this year than last. But last year seemed to be surrounded by heavy heavy stouts for me & I just thought it was too thin, so that could be why.

    I'll be picking up a 6'r today. Never tried it, but I love the added lactose in coffee stouts. Makes it a beer latte!
