AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Pours a dark brown in color with a nice quarter inch mocha brown head. Looks good. Smell is roasty. Some dark malts and maybe roasted coffee. Taste is more of the roast with a touch of the coffee there as well. A little too much roast coming through. Decent mouthfeel, could be a bit thicker. All in all a solid porter from Bells.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Pours black with minimal head. Heavy carbonation. Has a roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Taste is chocolate with lingering malts. Very light, making it extremely drinkable.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2008
A dark clear brown porter with a thin light moka head. Aroma of chocolate and brine, coffee and wet dog. In mouth, a light sweet chocolate and bitter chocolate or coffee, a bit short but still a good porter. Tasted Dec. 2006.

12oz i’ve been sitting on for way too long. Batch 6723. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is sweet and malty. Its decent look forward to trying a fresher bottle.

hopheaven (91) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Dark, dark brown with little by way of carbonation or head. Smells of coffee, black licorice, bread, and toasted malts. A touch too sweet with hardly a complement to the burnt undertones. No spiciness to speak of. Hop presence is subdued. Another American Porter that is caught between styles. More candy-like than a stout but not the porter that St. Peter’s is. A simple beer, and tasty nonetheless, but I’d rather be drinking St. Peter’s or Kalamazoo Stout.

Gethinbeer (2114) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2009
From bottle. Deep dark black colour with a thin tan lace. Aroma is a lovely mix of chocolate, roasted coffee, toffee and berries. Smooth texture with a flavour of roasted malt. Great porter.

monkeychugg55 (830) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours a near black brown with a small light tan head that fades fast. The commercial description is dead on. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, and heavily toasted malt. Flavor is same, with a little bit of coffee bitterness and end. Mouthfeel is a little watery, but the flavor more than makes up for it.

BiddleBrau (915) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Dark brown, pretty opaque, faint off white head. Nose is cocoa and some alcohol, warming. Roasted coffee bitterness, astringent and dry. Slightly sweet but mostly roasted flavor. Medium palate.
