BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
One of our many award-winning beers, Porter emphasizes the darker, roasted aspects of malt. Hints of dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee provide the focus, while hops remain in the background. Not as full-bodied as a stout, Porter bridges the gap between malty brown ales and our more heavily roasted stouts.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Very deep, dark brown in color. Pours with moderate head which doesn't stick around too long. Some light shines through.

Smell: Smells of roasted nuts, peanut butter, milk chocolate, marshmallows. Very sweet scent from this porter. Very nice.

Taste: Peanuts, a small hint of chocolate. Roasty, nutty flavor. Very nice. Not as sweet as the smell, but just enough sweet to balance the hop bitterness. Very good!

Feel: High in carbonation, medium bodied. I'd prefer a tad less carbonation and a bit of a heavier feel. Pretty good nonetheless.

Overall: Very pleased with this brew. Almost reminds me of milk stout, but lighter. Pretty good stuff!
