Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout

B+ / 3.9
Bell's Kalamazoo Stout

This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on September 1, 2010

B+ / 3.9

I tried this on tap at Ground Control Coffee (a must-try if you’re ever in Phoenix, AZ).

Appearance – Very dark brown, opaque, with a small amount of tan head.

Smell – Dark roasted coffee, licorice, and dark fruits.

Taste – The coffee and licorice are apparent, along with a little bakers chocolate, and a lot of malt.

Mouthfeel – Surprisingly light body (looked heavier) with gentle carbonation.

Drinkability – A very good dark brew. The coffee and licorice were quite enjoyable. Not exactly a favorite, but definitely something I’d drink again.
