look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Had a fresh growler of this filled for me yesterday, brought straight home and shared with friends.

A - Pretty standard opaque inky appearance, forms a nice creamy froth on top and it leaves some thick lace down the glass as its consumed.

S - Chocolate and malty sweetness, sweet milk. Very dessert-like. A bit more subdued with the chocolate than other chocolate brews I've had in the past.

T - Delivers with the sweetness and the chocolate, but it stops there. Just doesn't feel complete, something missing. Easy drinking though.

M - Really oily, and a flat unimpressive finish. Just OK for me.

O - I think its an interesting offering, I'd drink another esp. after dinner. San Tan seems to be getting better and better.

A dark dark reddish colored beer rests below a big tan head. A nice lacing and a small biscuity mound remain long after the head has receded on this American Porter.

Dark chocolates, light black licorice and a hint of alcohol aroma.

Roasted grain malts with a edge towards dark bakers chocolate taste with just a hint of hops bitterness.

A dry aftertaste on this full bodied beer with a light darker chocolate taste staying around.

Decent tasting easy drinking porter, worth a try. I think pairing this with the right food and it would only get much better.

A full bodied slightly hoppy porter with outstanding chocolate notes. Clocking in at 6.9% it drinks mighty quick, partly due to it's dryness and nice full body with slightly assertive carbonation.

When the pub pairs it with something, listen. They take their pairings seriously and they are almost always spot on.

Poured from a can into a old faithful inn pint glass. Nice color, nice and dark. Smell is different than I thought it would be. Not as chocolate as I though it would be. Double chocolate is a bit much. Nice and nutty, a little chocolate but I was expecting super chocolate. Being from Arizona, this beer was kinda a white elephant but it just didn't blow me away. A solid brew but I just wasn't blow away. Worth a try for sure.
