Bell's Kalamazo Stout is rich and strong. It pours thick and inky in appearance with a slight but creamy head. The aroma is sweet; cherries and caramel malt, with a little coffee quality. The flavor is sly, the sweetness in the flavor doesn't dominate at all. Instead there's the strong coffee, burnt toast, some hoppy tingle, and then a flood of rich malt and licorice. Very good.
