Dark rich brown with a mocha colored head. Clean carmel, smoke, chocolate, and more on the nose. Rich mouthfeel with a light drying finish. Coffee, choclate and some burnt toast on the palate. Yum, refreshing yet light enough to have more than one!

Very dark brown color, beautiful somewhat lasting head. Big coffee, slightly hoppy, slightly smokey aroma. Similar flavors, lots of coffee, bittersweet chocolate. Somewhat short in the finish. Definitely a favorite porter.

Dark black body, not much head. Smells a little roasty. Tastes pretty smooth and lacks the black malt bite, which makes it very drinable in quantity hehe

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Rich chocolate coffee aroma, full chocolate coffee taste with roastedmalt and coffee aftertaste. As good of a porter as I’ve had, it does however resemble the Kalamazoo stout a lot, maybe slightly thinner

Ptch black brew, medium rocky head. Vinegar toasty nose. Biting bitter, also kind of smokey taste. Tarty too - wasn’t that convinced.

SpringsLicker (3151) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Deep and dark, almost opaque with a ruby glow that tries to come through at the edges. Big mocha whipped cream head. Aroma of roast malt and dark caramel. Wonderfully smooth and thick palate delivers loads of coffee and chocolate. Very nicely done Porter.

bottle. pours a very dark brown with a deep beige head. sipped on this one after dinner and noticed hints of chocolate, coffee and maybe toffee as well. Very Nice. wish I had picked up more than just one bottle from the bottle shop.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Very dark clear black body with ruby edges. Very pleasing rocky tan head. Lacing is excellent. The aroma is quite smokey, roasted malt, coffee and generous hops. The flavor is big on coffee and roasted malt. The smokey, almost peaty maltiness comes through towards the end. Medium bitter throughout. Medum body with a bit of alcohol at the end. Nice porter.

Thick, creamy head. Nutty aroma. A lighter roasted flavor with a little less body than expected. A very smooth, drinkable porter. Better than most, but on par for Bell’s.
