Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is black with a small tan head. The aroma is your standard porter smell of roasted malt with a hint of coffee. The taste is matches the aroma with the exception of some chocolate added. A very good porter. hallinghansen (3193) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2016

Bottle @ Mikkeller Webshop. Pours black with a small off beige head. Roast, licorice and chocolate. Mild - harmonic balanced perhaps. A bit of ash. Enjoyable. MetalNHopHead (1981) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2016
While its coloring and ABV are definitely appropriate for a Porter, Bell’s Porter has a richness and depth that make it seem more like a Stout in many respects. It pours dark brown - creamy head. Toasted malt and vibrant cocoa aromas. Chocolate, coffee, rich roasted malt, and smoked malt flavors. Good balance between bitter and sweet. Bell’s seems to have a winner in about every style category. The unspectacularly named Porter is no exception. mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
