12oz bottle poured into pint glass.
Tis the season for some good porters! First time having this brew and it did not disappoint. Lots of sweet and roasted flavors flood the palate. Coffee, vanilla, chocolate, caramel and a little molasses. Finishes pretty clean with a slight hop bitterness. Aroma follows suite with roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and caramel. Deep dark brown with a little amber on the edge. Medium body with a little creaminess to it. Very solid porter for the upcoming winter months. Another top notch brew from Bells.

This beer poured a dark brown with a huge, very foamy off white head. The aroma was dominated by chocolate and coffee. The taste was of coffee with hints of chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium body with medium carbonation. Overall another damn great beer from Bells.
