I am especially fond of porter beer and Bell’s is not a disappointment. Long known in the southwest area of Michigan, Bell’s brews a lot of different styles of beer and I think they hit their peak with this porter. Just an excellent beer.
Dark brown pour with a short-lived beige head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, quite a bit of dark fruit, I think even some raspberry flavor, smoke, light roast. A very fruity porter, light and sessionable. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Tap at Cap Ale Downtown. Very dark with big foamy head and lacing. Smells like toast and roast with a metallic note. Smooth and creamy with a light roasty flavor. fidemaster (324) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Aroma is fresh brewed coffee. Dark, pitch black. Coffee taste with a touch of unsweet chocolate. Average mouthful for a porter. Solid, but I wish it gave me more. MavDunk (105) - - JUN 15, 2017
Drank on the porch with a cigar. Pours cola brown with thick tan head. Scent is chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar with cocoa, coffee, and roasted malts. A bit of smokiness and dark fruit as well unless that's coming from the cigar. Good light porter. rougeau13 (3080) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle at The Exchange in Corpus. Very dark with a creamy tan head. Roasty and dark chocolate aroma with some coffee and some light indistinct hop. Smooth.

Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours very dark brown and leaves a creamy, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, cow dung(!), a bit of smoke, roasted grainy notes. Taste is nice: lightly sweet up front, smoky, turning both sour and evincing a roasted coffee bitterness going into the finish. Body is medium with a mild carbonation. Overall not bad, apart from that odd fecal note. bvbunited (72) - Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2017
This is a very good porter. Nicely balanced with great color and aroma. I would recommend this beer to all

Marrón oscura, casi negra, de espuma ocre no muy abundante y poco duradera, que deja buen cerco. Aroma a café tostado, no muy intenso. Excelente punto de gas, cuerpo entre ligero y moderado, y un paso por boca suave, con un sabor muy equilibrado y agradable. Ricas maltas tostadas, chocolate y toque ligeramente ahumado. Postgusto claro a chocolate. Bien rica. Brandon1989 (661) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan head that left some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same. beern (123) - Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2017
Pours black, amber with a 2-finger pillowy tan head. Tastes of malt, cocoa & yeast
