Picked this brew up as a sample from a buddy in the liqour store. I love porters, so this should be good. I have expectations. Side poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance - Pours just like a nice stout of any nationality should, especially an American one. Super dark, cannot see through the glass. Has almost two fingers worth of head with a bit of lacing. Very good presentation.

Smell - Strong chocolate and cocoa aroma, paired up with caramel, coffee, toffee, and some vanilla as well. This has an excellent nose to it for sure. Excited for the beer itself.

Taste - The taste closely follows the nose as well! Strong chocolate flavors throughout, as well as touches of coffee and vanilla. Roasted malts make an apperance as well. Tastes outstanding.

Mouthfeel - Probably the best par tof this beer is the mouthfeel. This beer is so smooth and creamy, its like drinking melted vanilla ice cream with plenty of chocolate syrup. Goes down really easily and is very satisfying.

Overall - This is an excellent brew that I would recommend to all fans of dark beers. Kind of a cross between a chocolate laced porter and a milk stout, I would absolutely buy this again.

The pour reminds me of a nitro with an upward cascading set of bubbles. In the end this looks like a Guinness but with a smaller head. The lace forms like smooth, thin blanket on the glass.

Great semisweet chocolate aroma. You'll be transported to grade school with this one.

Tastes like a chocolate milk. Quite sweet with lots of cocoa. The aftertaste is more of the same. Full bodied and lowly carbonated, this beer comes across as very rich.
