Sweetened cocoa powder in the nose, darker chocolate but not at all bitter. Taste matches the nose, with a touch of honey on the tongue in the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and and rather slick. Nothing about this suggests a winter warmer - just a simple, straightforward English porter tweaked to taste like a cup of cocoa. Needs a better-defined body and malt foundation.

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.
