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

On draught at Barley's Smokehouse. If you are going to have "guest taps", make 'em Bell's! Pours deep opaque brown with a medium tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is chocolatey and bready. Flavor is smooth a rich and consists of chocolate, coffee and malt. I detected an ever-so-slight sourness in the finish which was interesting. Overall a good Porter, but I'll still stick with the Stouts from Bell's if given the choice.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Pours a deep ruby- almost pitch black with a fantastic two-finger, creamy, tan head that lasts throughout. Awesome lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, milk chocolate, raisins. Taste is medium bodied with some spicy hops and cocoa . Finish adds a nice touch of bittering hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Aftertaste is muted hops with some milk chocolate. Overall excellent.

DSG (9318) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Pleasant roasty aroma with coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Nice roasty flavor, bittersweet, with some coffee and a bitterish finish, slightly burnt and ashy. Medium-bodied. Nice.

12oz bottle. Totally black with almost no head, just around the edges. After a rough day, the first sip was instant bliss. Roasty chocolate, coffee aroma that doesn’t come on terribly strong, but lingers in a satisfying way. Looks like "porter" is becoming one of my new favorite styles.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 July 2006 - Very dark brown almost black body with a small fluffy tan head. (3+) Lightly acidic mocha and dark malt in the aroma. Flavour is likewise. Average palate is a touch thin for the style. Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. 7/4/7/3/14 - 3.5 <P> July 2004 - Black body with smallish tan head. Aroma is phenomenal, it gently caresses your nose with hints of vanilla, caramel and toffee with some malt mixed in. The flavour is lovely, but does not quite live up to the echantment of the aroma. Sweet maltiness with a touch of roastiness in the finish. Palate is on the light side but very smooth. Many thanks to NorthYorkSammy for this one. 9/3/7/3/14 - 3.6

Deep brown/black beer, thick tan head. Aroma is quite rich and sweet. Loads of cocoa/chocolate and a soft herbal character. A little bit chewy and sweet with loads of rich cocoa and chocolate. Lightly chewy with a bit of cocoa and dark malts. Very smooth and well-balanced. Lovely.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Poured dark with a tan head, aroma was woody and smoky. Tastes of slight coffee and chocolate with some smoke in the finish. Overall a decent porter with average qualities.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 Tastes a little like cola, fizzles on the tongue, with more carbonation than I care for. Tastes are of ginger and berries, which are very nice. Unlike many others in the category.
