4.33/5  rDev +28.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured a nice dark brown with a small head that was carmel colored and laced nicely.
The aroma was of coffee mocha.
Tasted mildly sweet chocolate with some alcohol notes but not much, and left little after taste in the mouth.
This was low carbonation, medium bodied and finished quickly.
Overall This was a very easy drinker and was more flavorfull after it sat in the tulip glass for over 1/2 hour and the temp was around 60-65 F. This one should be visited again in the winter, as it warmed you from the alcohol. Seems to have delivered everything it said it was on the bottle

Poured from 12 oz into nonic pint
BBD 05/14
A- Typical dark brown with a lighter brown glimmer. Very little tan head. No lacing whatsoever.
S- A hint of chocolate, some roasted malt. Slight coffee.
T- follows the nose somewhat. Slight sweetness from the honey.
M- Light to medium mf, fairly smooth going down.
O- Decent offering from Tommyknocker. Maybe a little more honey presence would've sweetened it up a bit. Otherwise, pretty average porter.

12 oz brown bottle - best by May 5, 2014

Tommyknocker Cocoa Porter changed my [clear] pint glass into dark brown producing a 1-finger tan head. The nose is dominated by light roasted coca malt with just a hint of sweetness from honey. The taste is also dominated by light cocoa/chocolate malt along with light coffee flavors. Where did the honey go? - hardly if at all noticeable. There is a mild bitterness to help balance the malt with a light burnt and dry finish. The mouth feel is the Achilles heel of this Ale. A little thin - almost watery.

For the style Cocoa Porter is lighter making it not filling and easy to drink. However, I prefer my porters a little heavier.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. bottle into craft pint.

A- Deep brown. Some red hues. Light tan head retains at a ring.

S- slight roast and sweet chocolate, but a strange smell of iron. I can't describe it better than the smell of an "old person." Something is way off.

T- Subtle roast. Just a faint cocoa. A bit metallic, too.

M- Too light, near watery.

O- There wasn't really anything good about this. At all.
