The beer, the myth, the legend, the 10,000th batch that Bell's has made. Bell's has made milestone batches before, but this is apparently the last one they will be doing. If they're going out - they sure did it in style. It wasn't easy getting my hands on this beer. Two six-packs made it all the way back to the burbs from the brewery in Kalamazoo, MI.
This strong american ale has a very bold malty taste to begin. The finish is quite smooth for such a strong beer, and has a hint of hops. The beer pours nearly black in the glass, with a creamy but light head. Overall, I'd give this beer an A-. Excellent all around for its style, and several bonus points for the fact that I'll never get to buy it again.
Aroma: Nutty, almost chocolaty but not a strong aroma.
Appearance: Dark brown - almost black with a light creamy head.
Flavor: Malty to start, smooth to finish.
Body: Heavy and full flavored.
Cheers to the 10,000th batch made at Bell's. Now make me some Hopslam!!
