Black appearance with a thin off white head. Aroma is roasted malt with some cocoa hints. Flavor is strong roasted flavor with some slight astringent bitterness in the finish. Slightly sour flavor lingers on the tongue. Pretty solid porter if a bit thin, still quite good.

While its coloring and ABV are definitely appropriate for a Porter, Bell’s Porter has a richness and depth that make it seem more like a Stout in many respects. It pours dark brown - creamy head. Toasted malt and vibrant cocoa aromas. Chocolate, coffee, rich roasted malt, and smoked malt flavors. Good balance between bitter and sweet. Bell’s seems to have a winner in about every style category. The unspectacularly named Porter is no exception.
