3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle, six pack from the local Harris Teeter. Appearance is a deep dark pour with a big tan head. Aroma is fairly subtle with malt and chocolate. Taste follows the nose, but is quite complex despite being pretty light in body; chocolate, coffee, and lightly smoked notes compliment each other. Palate is medium. Overall, a good choice, but I was expecting a bit more because of the brewer.

Draught at Archive Beer Boutique, West End, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black with a one-finger tan dense foam head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced OK. Aroma of dark chocolates and coffee. Taste initially sweet followed by strong roasted grain. Heavy body. Sweet caramel fading to a slight roasted bitterness on the finish.

Dark brown with small beige head. Roasty aromas of coffee and dark chocolate with a little licorice. The taste is smooth and subtle - dark chocolate, licorice and charred meat. Light bodied and very easy drinking. Very solid porter.

Tried at same time as Founderís porter. Comparatively the Bellís is not as heavy on the coffee flavor. More chocolate notes than coffee in Bells. Not as strong flavored as Founders, I preferred the Bellís more.
