look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a two finger tan head, body is opaque,black with ruby highlights. Head retention and lacing were good.

Smells pretty sweet, first aromas are of a banana split with tons of chocolate syrup on top. Vanilla is very prevalent and roasted dark malts are also in the mix. Hops aren't really present and neither is alcohol.

First taste is very similar to a melted chocolate shake or a beer float. Sweet milk chocolate and vanilla bean dominate this beer. Dark chocolate malts and burnt brownie flavors contribute also. Hops are very light and alcohol is almost undetectable.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated for a porter. Head adds a slight creamy texture, finishes nicely

Overall this beer was great. This porter hit the spot and delivered on what it claimed, which was tons of chocolate. Went through a bomber easily, glad its brewed 40 miles from me, will become a staple in my fridge.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate.

The flavor is sweet milk chocolate with some slight acidic cardboard notes and a little roast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, a decent chocolate beer - definitely all chocolate.

12 oz bottle.Poured into a 20oz firestone glass.Dark brown with a 1 inch head.Very heavy chocolate smell.Not bad.This has got a good flavor .If your looking for a good Porter this is not that bad.Not near as good as the Alaskan Baltic porter but still a very tasty Porter.Give it a try.Motley out.
