An excellent Porter. Pours dark brown with a red tinge. A thin tan head. Aroma of coffee. Bitter on front and back ends. Another outstanding offering by Bell’s..

12floz bottle, BOD: 04.17.2017, $1.75 single, pint glass. Dark brown in color, which with a vigorous pour presents a sustained large tan head that leaves splotchy markings. Malty nose is fairly mild with essences of residual sugars and toasted bread crumbs. Mildly roasted flavor character can be described as nutty, and with further imagination heavily brown laden mashed potatoes. Adequately good for the style, and as a beer for that matter.

shanoknowsfood (100) - Hawaii, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle @ Whole Foods - Black with small head, aroma of dark roast, Ovaltine, caramel, raisins. Taste was similar. Very thin & watery. Not much to get excited about but it was refreshing.

3.6
Idiosynkrasie (7839) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2017
355ml bottle. Opaque, darkest brown colour with average, late awakening, frothy to creamy, moderately lasting and lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of coffee, roasted nuts, some cocoa, hints of toffee, weak smoky overtones. Taste is roasty dark malty, minimally bitter, notes of roasted nuts, coffee, cocoa. Super clean, well balanced and integrated, but lacks some intensity.
