Attaching Porch Column to a flush beam

Of course I think between the notch resting on the beam and bolts through the beam, it would hold.

Something like this?

Those are interesting thoughts also.... I would suppose it would also depend on whether that beam was solid, or how well it was laminated to itself. Intuitively, it seems it ought to be sufficient... but if I had big snow loads, I'd want an engineer stamping it I guess.
