This is real tasty. If you wanna get someone into craft beer, this is a good one to start with. My dad loves some miller, but he actually enjoyed a few sips of this one. As an experienced beer drinker, I enjoy it myself too. Great beer for when you're looking for something sweet.

This beer is what it says. It's a fun beer to drink. Goes in beer and goes down leaving hints of chocolate behind.
Not to imply sweetness.. It's not, but it has replaced dessert more than once. I like it!

tates like they poured cocoa powder in a mild beer.

Tastes like a chocolate milk shake. Gotta love a beer that is true to its name.

Intensely chocolate in taste and smell. Only lightly bitter. Malty but not sweet. Excellent mouth feel, easy to drink. There's little roasted malt flavor and smell which seems to help the chocolate come through. Honestly, it's not just a one time bit. Often beers like this are something I would try once. However, this is a true Porter – tasty and not a gimmick.

My first 5/5 rating. It only took 189 beers prior to find it. When I think of a milkshake version of a beer, this exemplifies that thought. A chocolate fudge punch to the palate and wonderful aromas to boot. Not high in alcohol so you can certainly session out on this. Light body doesn't fill you up. I took a girl out to World of Beer and she got this and I opted for the Brooklyn Blast!. Granted, I really enjoyed the Blast! but I had some beer envy when I tried hers. I had to seek it out and luckily I remembered seeing it at a local store. I'll probably buy their last two six packs.
