Bellís... God knows I love you, one of my favorites, however I feel like weíve encountered our first disagreement. Now, itís not that Iím done with you, I just donít think weíll do the Porter anymore. Please donít take it personal, itís just there are more attractive ones out there. Youíd be more appealing if you werenít so burnt and dry. I like smokey like the best of them, but the threesome wasnít as I expected. Please donít be mad, and if you would, could you have your friends Expedition Stout and Hopslam call me. They are much better looking.

Btl pours very dark brown with a reddish hue. Creamy tan head that lingers for a while leaving good lace on glass. Smells of roasted grains, fresh coffee,faint smoke and chocolate. Tastes of sweet caramel malt, semi-sweet chocolate ,espresso,some earthy hops and a light smoke-ash flavor. Light to medium body,smooth creamy texture,tingling carbonation, nice dry finish. Well balanced porter, not to thick and heavy, very easy to consume. It is a little on the light side but I like this take on a porter. A very nice easy to drink "session"beer packed with ample flavors.

Itís like a delicious barbeque in my mouth. Never really liked porters much but hadnít tried one in a while. Unfortunately, I started with Bells and now my expectations are way too high. Hickory goodness.

From cask at jerry?s. Amazing coffee nose. Dark but not overwhelming appearance. Good amount of head, sticks around throughout. Amazing chocolate and coffee flavor. Better at this higher temperature than it would be out of the fridge.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours black with a nice sized tan head that sticks around for awhile. Smell like roasted coffee/malts. Nice full body that starts off sweet and creamy, then finishes it off with a little bit of bitterness. Marvelous porter.

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2011
12 oz bottle from PA. Pours a dark brown/mahogany color with a light tan head. Nice slight toasted notes balanced with some caramel and coffee notes. Medium body with a slightly smooth mouth feel. Great sweet malty notes up front with a bit of caramel that give way to slight burnt coffee and more roasted notes. Really well executed and balanced porter. You could enjoy this with a wide variety of meals and you could also enjoy more than a few of them. Overall: (A)

performula (148) - Heart of the Rockies, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Looks like Coca~Cola when poured, just a creamier head. Strong smell of coffee. Big taste of dark chocolate and coffee. Finish is slight watery but smooth.

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2008
This is a nice beer with a somewhat smoky malt aroma with hints of coffee and a saltiness. Rich and black in color. Very opaque. The flavor is rich and smooth with smokiness and a slightly acrid bitterness that is not unpleasant. The finish is superb with a smooth and slightly slick feel and hints of cedar and an organic earthiness. Overall this is a very fine porter.

Bottle. A deep red almost makes this beer look black. Topped by a thin tan head. Im not big on the aroma of this one - like the Aecht rauchbier it just seems to have too much of smoked meat aroma which instead makes the roasted coffee smell like soy sauce. With the flavor they managed some restraint but that soy sauce presence is hard to ignore. Give me some fried rice and we have a meal.

Good dark chocolate porter. Clean filter with little aftertaste
