Beer is dark brown with red highlights and capped by a large cream-colored head. Shows good head retention, and a sexy lace is left in the glass.

Aromas bring to mind chocolate malts and moderately roasted coffee.

The taste is very malt-centered, but is not sweet. Flavors include dark brown breads, roasted malts, and bittersweet chocolate.

The beer has a creamy texture and finishes dry, with lingering tastes of coffee and chocolates.

Overall a very good porter. The awesome can design and reminder of Anchorman are an added bonus!

Thanks to Craig for this one!

3.8/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear mahogany color with an impressive head that leaves all matter of lacing around the glass

Smell: Chocolate, marshmallow, caramel and nuts

Taste: Chocolate with a marshmallow edge, up front, with the caramel and nut flavors developing in the middle; some earthy hop flavors arrive, after the swallow; hints of coffee in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; surprisingly thin, as others have noted

Overall: I rather enjoyed the flavor and the aroma here, though the mouthfeel doesn't live up to my expectations; a bigger chocolate malt profile and a fuller mouthfeel would make this beer outstanding - it is all about expectations and calling it "double" chocolate is a mistake as, apparently, was the idea of calling it a chocolate barleywine, when it was first released

Dark brown in color but with a clear body, Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter has a nose of cocoa and roasted malt. Foam is nice and leaves some slight lacing as it subsides.

This beer has a taste that is chocolaty more than anything, with flavors of light roasted malt, nuts, caramel, molasses, and even a hint of black licorice. The flavor of cocoa sticks with you throughout the tasting experience, but there are some good malt and fruity hops to back it up.

Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter is a good brew, but it is just a touch thinner in body than I would prefer. With the word double in the name, I expected it to offer a much fuller, richer flavor profile. As it stands, however, it is still good and it does afford a nice level of decadence to make it worthy of your time. It is brewed with real cocoa and has a sweetness level that isn’t extreme. It’s a good dessert beer and chocolate lovers will enjoy it very much.
