Can received in trade from RobertDale thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a solid dark brown color with the faintest of garnet at the edges and a huge frothy tan head that persists forever and leaves stickies everywhere. Aromas of cocoa and bakers chocolate with a sharp almost tart fruity bite to it. Citrus and earthy hop aromas are plentiful. The flavor is rich chocolate with hints of caramel and butterscotch. Earthy citrus mixes with hints of plums and a touch of mineral water. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice porter, but I would have liked a bit less fruit and a bit more creaminess.

Poured this inti a nonic pint. Drink by 3/01/14 can date.
This dark brown bodied beer contains blood red streaks in the corners. A three-fingered width of mocha foam towers out of the glass, amazing retention.
Milk chocolate and roasty aromas blast from the glass. Slight bready quality and spicy hop mingles with the roast. The yeast also adds a musty, chalky note to the nose.
Roasted malt leads the flavor profile, with a chalky milk chocolate gaining strength at mid-palate. The finish adds a bite of bitterness from a resiny hop. The malt also concedes some wheaty bread-like quality near the finish.
Decent medium heft to this beer, it runs a little too watery over the palate, more creaminess needed. Zombie Monkie also finishes dry thanks to the roasted malt and resiny finish.
Zombie Monkie is brewed to be a chocolatey porter with a definite biting edge. Thanks to the roasted malt and hop bite, this porter delivers a fun and intense drinking experience.
