    Pours rich coffee with a nice buff head that leaves good lacing. Aroma delivers roast malt, quality coffee, a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor ups all of these a notch and tosses in earthy and nutty character plus a caramel hint. Texture offers firm, smooth body and jazzy fizz. Hearken to the trumpeter!

    NorCal December '07 - Thanks to Moejuck for sending me this one. It's been out of the rotation of Bell's line-up for quite sometime now, so the beer has some obvious age on it. Still, it wasn't bad. Not the greatest at all, but drinkable (barely). The aroma on the beer is sweet malts, chocolate and bell pepper. Appearance is dark brown with some light getting thru suprisingly. Filtered maybe? The taste is an odd combo of chocolate, roasted malts, and lactic sourness. Can't say I'm disappointed at all, because the things really been out of date for awhile. Thanks to Joe again for letting me give it a go.

    Pours a dark brown with some head but no lacing. I was expecting a lot darker than this. Smells like coffee and a bit of chocolate, but the smell is rather weak. Tastes weak as well. The first thing I thought of when I tasted this was...sunflower seeds. There's a bit of coffee and chocolate there, but I'll be damned if I can't keep coming back to sunflower seeds to discribe the taste Mouthfeel is actually pretty watery. I expected quite a bit thicker from Bell's. Drinkability is average. It's not a bad beer, just nothing special.

    Probably the palest of the Bell's stouts since you can actually see through this one. Great big roasty aroma, a bit of chocolate. Same in the flavor but a bit sour. Would be better if a bit richer and less sour.

    Big fat roasted coffee/cocoa nose.I like that this doesnt have the sourness that some of the other bells had.Tastes of chocolate and latte's. Didnt pick up the oak but whatever they did with this one they might want to try with some of the others. Thanks to hopsrus for this one!

    For a stout, a fairly light body. Dark brown in color w/ a roasted coffee nose. Nice flavor, very drinkable

    Pours with a dark brown body with red tinting topped by a thin head with little lacing. The aroma is sweet and full of unsweetened (bakers) chocolate notes with a slight roastiness, as well as, a touch of fruit. The flavor is sweet and slighlty bitter with nice roasty notes and a touch of chocolate. Medium bodied yet a little thin and smooth.
