Wow probably the best porter iíve had. Bottle, Pours a nice dark brown with a small tan head. This beer gives a pleasent chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. The taste is a creamy flavor with hints of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Has a slight bitter finish.

Bellís always makes a fine beverage. This one was malty and sweet but not too big. I bought it in the little shop in Grand Central Terminal.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is a darker brown, with hints of ruby, and a light tan, almost off-white head that fades quickly leaving sporadic lace. The aroma is thin and light, but manages to carry some of the common porter characteristics. There is a light roastyness and a hint of caramel. Maybe a little chocolate, but they are in small, hard to distinguish tones. The flavor is somewhat creamy. Not a lot of domination, and the flavors mimic the aroma, only a little lighter. The mouth feel is thin and watery with an aftertaste that doesn't hang as it seems the taste just falls off of the tongue when the liquid leaves

Aromas and flavours of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, plums and black currants. Nutty and buttery, it is medium-bodied. Reassuring, confy, itís a solid Porter. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a foamy head that fades. Taste and smells of malt and vanilla chocolate with a light schwartzbier feel. Drinks easy and tasty

Basic coffee and chocolate tastes youíd expect from a porter. Thin and overly carbonated. Generic. After some of the other beers Iíve had from Bells, I expected better.

12oz bottle pours a dark chocolate with a tan head. Aromas of toasty malt, coffee, earthy goodness. Bitter toasted malt and coffee flavor. Delicious!

From the bottle. This is a nice enough porter, nothing great. Dark with moderate roast levels. This isnít an American-style hoppy porter, which is fine with me. But it could use a bit more malt richness.
