A: dark brown in color; with a light shining through, ruby is visible throughout; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a thin, uneven cap; OK lacing;

S: chocolate is clearly dominant, with an earthy quality also present; as it warms, the aroma is strikingly like a chocolate milk shake;

T: earthy up front; chocolate clearly present at mid-palate and gets stronger through the finish; bittersweet chocolate at the end;

M: medium bodied; light to moderate carbonation;

O: the label says chocolate porter and that's exactly what this is; for me, it's pigeon holes as a dessert beer, which isn't bad, but it's limiting;

Tastes like a chocolate milkshake. Great aroma, great taste and finish, and absolutely perfect whether beginning your evening or finishing with a night cap.

Pours a very dark brown with khaki colored head. Chocolate shake, it smells like a chocolate shake; same for the palate. Finishes with just a touch of roasted malt. Interestingly good.
