Bottle from Breeze Thru (cannot believe never have rated this ...). Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head leaving some spots of lace Aroma has sweet caramel and coffee, and more caramel and more coffee. Taste is of heavy roast, sweet caramel malts and light tanginess. Medium bodied and quite roasty. Finishes nicely on the balance line between bitter and sweet. Solid tasty porter from Bells.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a beige head that's foamy and settles to a rim and coat. Aroma is nuts, roast malt and a touch of prune. Taste is low on the sweetness and amps the roasted malt. Some burnt coffee bitterness as well especially in the aftertaste. Mild flavors of chocolate lurk lightly in the background. A bit thin. Not really my kind of porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black body with a quickly fading tan head. A nice heavy roasted malt presence. Nice coffee malts and a slight hint of smoke. Flavor was similar to the aroma. Finish was moderately dry. Body seemed at bit light and it was easy to drink.

Pours a deep dark brown. Large creamy frothy light brown head, fairly lasting with thick lace. . Aroma is coffee and chocolate, perhaps some caramel, some dry roastiness, bittersweetish. Flavor is roasty, bittersweet chocolate, light ash, underlying coffee.. Medium bodied but almost thin. Bittersweet and roasty dry in a very nice finish. Quite enjoyable.
