Paul is back to review another beer with me. Today's beer review is Black Note Stout from Bells brewery.

From the site: One of the most sought-after stouts in Bell's history, Black Note Stout blends the complex aromatics of Expedition Stout with the velvety smooth texture of Double Cream Stout, each aged in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months.

The resulting harmony of flavors captures the finest features of all three components: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso and dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of the bourbon barrel.

Aimed squarely at the stout and bourbon aficionados, Black Note makes a grand statement about the art of the dark.


11.2% ABV
