A dark ale for all occasions. A blend of dark malt gives this beer flavors of coffee and chocolate with some smokey roasted notes.

PKGD 12/26/13 - Pours pitch black with a smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, hints of coffee, chocolate and roastiness. Taste is smooth, watery and slightly roasty with hints of coffee and chocolate. Finish is malty, robust and smooth with some hints of chocolate. Okay, quite balanced and smooth porter.

This was a bit underwhelming. Nice flavour - chocolate, coffee, some roasty malt - but somewhat light bodied. Still a good porter - and quite nicely balanced - but a bit lacklustre.

12oz bottle. Pours black, brown head, no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, malt, smoke. Body is medium, well carbonated, bittering finish. Flavor is that of your favorite porter. Yeah, it’s a porter, it’s Bell’s, it’s delicious.

Pours a deep mahogany. Hints of earthy roasted coffee beans and chocolate. Rich roasted malts, coffee, hints of caramel and cocoa. A very nice porter.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby glints in the light. A light tan-gray head forms to a size equal to the beer on which it sits. Spider web laces the insides of the glass. Ample coffee on the nose. Mouthfeel is full, but becomes more cottony as the astringency increases. Some sweetness, but not too sweet. In fact, it is bittered well enough at the finish to balance. Coffee, some ripe plum, and fine smokiness comprise the flavors of this well-engineered porter.

Bell’s porter is deep deep brown with some rubby high lights. When poured it produces about one inch of desent head fading to a wisp ring . Aroma is rich with roasted malt slightly sweet. Hops are present but not much. Smooth and rich roasted, slightly burnt malt taste is present. Hops are there just for balance purposes and are not a major player. Has a rich full taste but I would like to taste some of the flavors we come to associate with a rich and complex malt bill. Variety and difference is just as good. A well made beer I can enjoy time and time again Drink well my friends

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Husky and roasted malts, moderate sweetness, faint bitterness, and a nice quick malty finish. Not too sweet, and a good deal of rich malt character. Spot on.
