chickenflea's rating

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Dark mahogany brown. The tan head is fairly large, lasts a while and leaves broken sheets of lace on the glass. The nose is of roasted black malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and dark red wine. So far, so good. The flavor, like the aroma, is considerably roasted malty with lovely bittersweet chocolate notes. Notes of cordial cherries are present as well, but chocolate shares equal billing. Thereís also a restrained hoppiness that balances the finish which is long and increasingly bitter, especially as the beer warms. Firm, not quite full body with a lively carbonation. Good mouthfeel overall; a little fizzy for a porter, but it is tolerable. Bellís Porter is a quality brew like all their offerings. Itís carbonation sets it apart from others and its noticeable hoppiness sets it apart from the others. These qualities neither detract of add to the quality; they just make it uniques.

A very good porter with a nice punch of flavor unexpected. A nice sweetness makes it easily pleasant and drinkable.

hawthorne00 (3600) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle, 11C. Dark brown with a modest tan head thatís soon less than a coat. 3- Aroma of mildly roasted malt, licorice, some mocha. Smooth, lowish carbonation. Tastes as it smells with a slightly astringent bitter finish. Roasted and burnt flavours creep up. Crude but cheery.

jmohno (1541) - Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Dark. Creamy lacey head. Great aroma of dark berry, rich resiny coffee, milk chocolate. Some floral. Same in taste, dry finish. Smooth creamy, more chocolate than coffee, berry, mild cola. Sweet smoked, cherry, on the medium with sweetness and less robust than the average porter, less dry also but balanced and I favor porters more like this. .Citrus, herbal. Mild tang. Nice.

zoucrew102 (1479) - - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Roasted barley aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours very dark brown with a thin light brown head that has little retention but good lacing. Starts with chocolate malt and roasted barley flavors with a thinner body than expected. Finishes dry with a large amount of roasted coffee joining and overpowering the other flavors and settling on the palate after each sip. Decent porter, but the big coffee in the finish is not appealing to my palate.
