A- Pitch black body, very thin layer of tan bubbles that leave good lacing.

S- Lots of roasted malts, bitter coffee, bitter dark chocolate, smells great.

T- Really similar to the aroma. Lots of roasted malts with a hint of smoke. Coffee and chocolate come through a lot in the middle and towards the end.

M- Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight carbonation tingle towards the end, but overall pretty smooth.

O- Another strong offering from Bell's. Great aromas, great flavors, excellent porter.
