ajnepple (1666) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
12 oz bottled 3.5 months ago, purchased at Johnís Grocery ($1.79) and poured into a pint glass at home. Black appearance with a lingering tan head and thick lacing. Aroma of roast, dark malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavor, adding a mild earthy bitterness. Medium body, slick and smooth with average carbonation, a little dry. Rich and robust, but still pretty easy to drink.

Solid porter with nice chocolate flavors. Soft flavors and very approachable clearly distinguishes itself from a stout which a lot donít.

Schlaubee (14) - - MAR 13, 2014
Good smells upon opening the bottle. Very full yet clean mouthfeel with coffee notes on the finish. Iím not a coffee drinker so I like when porters are not overwhelmingly coffee flavored. This one is nicely balanced. Very drinkable.

jebert (470) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pours an opaque blackish brown with a small tan head. Nose is dark roasted malt with a hint of chocolate. Nice and creamy on the palate with average viscosity. Taste is of dark roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate. Very light on the hops flavor resulting in a very smooth flavor. Pairs well with a corned beef sandwich on rye.

NaturalIce (146) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2014
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.

Bellís always makes a fine beverage. This one was malty and sweet but not too big. I bought it in the little shop in Grand Central Terminal.
