A dark ale for all occasions. A blend of dark malt gives this beer flavors of coffee and chocolate with some smokey roasted notes.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 I really enjoyed this brew. It is not one of those beers that blows you away. It is just a solid easy drinking flavourful beer. pours dark dark brown, almost black. Minimal carbonation which dissipates quickly. flavour that struck me was the slight smokiness which was detectable amoungst the coffee flavour. Really good mouthfeel. smooth and easy drinking. I wish this were more readily available here becaue this would be a good everyday sort of beer.

Aromas of dark roasted coffee with a touch of chocolate. Some balance from the hop bitterness. A moderate light tan head; very dark brown, nearly black color to the beer. Taste is predominately bitter flavors; mild to perhaps moderate sweetness. Fairly full bodied with a somewhat oily texture. Average carbonation. Finish is long and mostly roasted bitterness, but a touch of sweetness also. Overall a quite good enjoyable Porter. Complex enough to be interesting, though not enough to make it world class.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2008 I like porters. They are among my favorites and Bells Porter is one of my favorite of favorites, A nice dark pour. Malty but not overwhelming even a bit crisp. A beer one can drink several of at a siting and enjoy until the very end when you fall on the ground.

A nice dark body. Aroma of roast, coffee, chocolate. Initial flavor is roasted coffee, then develops into a dark fruity taste -- either fig or prune. Smooth palate and very rich. Finish is slightly bitter -- a mixture of hops and bitter chocolate. I really like this porter -- would have again.

For straight up, no fancy additives, this may be Americaís best porter. Full, slightly bitter, and of a wonderful nose and flavor. There just arenít enough days in the week to drink all of the great Bellís products.

Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee with a bit of chocolate. Flavor is slightly better balanced than the aroma but still a bit heavy on the coffee which I think gives it a bit of a bitter finish. A little too easy to drink for me... not quite as rich in flavor as I would like but still a pretty good beer.
