Poured into a goblet. Dark Brown with a thin beige head. Espresso, burnt sugar, molasses smell. Flavor: Smoke, bitter chocolate, a bit of a metallic after taste. Full bodied, dryer than most stouts but the dryness compliments the taste. Overall: A nice change up. If you are looking for a bit more hops in your stout, this one may be right up your alley.

Pours dark giving way to a nice brown head. The smell is strong of coffee some caramel. Taste is roast, toasty with a strong flavor, coffee, chocolate, hint of vanilla. A creamy and thick mouth feel with interesting bitterness. This here is a robust porter

Poured into snifter with a 1 finger tan head which quickly dissipated leaving slight lacing. Beer is very dark colored. Aroma filled with roasted malts, vanilla and toffee. Great roasted flavor with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Beer finished bitter with notes of hops and licorice. Medium body, less heavy than I expected based on the appearance. Moderate amount of carbonation, could be slightly creamier. Overall a great beer with lots of flavor. This is the first Bell's that I've had, looking forward to trying more!
