2.5/5 rDev -30.6%
I know a lot of beer geeks have been talking about this beer but I found it to be very disappointing. This certainly is not a barleywine as labeled here but a chocolate porter. Murjy brownish black color. Mouthfeel was very thin. Flavor was weak bittersweet chocolate. Tan head. Nice name, mediocre beer. I wish someone would tell me why this beer had so much hype.

Silly, sophomoric name is sure to sell this product - and the can artwork is only going to help.
Pours very dark brown to black depending on light. Even with a very aggressive pour the head was minimal and receded very quickly.
Nose was surprisingly light, even in my original, authentic Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Faint cocoa and roasty aromas noted.
On the palate it is surprisingly light bodied. Decent amount of roasty flavors with some chocolate control the show, but nothing overly flavorful. Easy drinking and rather light, perhaps made to be approachable to an extremely wide audience that might be put off by too much character in the porter.

Can pour for New Brew Thursday's 3rd Anniversary event held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.
Pours a murky brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt and cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer for the style with a better smell than taste.

Cola brown color, murky, with a tan head about a finger high. Good retention and moderate lacing. Aroma is light/faint. What I do pick up is hints of dark chocolate and cocoa, light roasted malts, caramel, and dark fruits. Taste is the same but the flavors are a bit more pronounced. I also get some nutty qualities and a bit of hop notes in there. The mouthfeel is light-medium (just a tad watery but not too bad). Smooth and light consistency, medium carbonation, light-medium body, and a smooth finish.
Overall this is nothing outstanding but it is a decent, slightly better than average porter, especially for an AZ brewed one. But if we're talking AZ brewed porters, this is a 'nothing' in comparison to Four Peaks Pumpkin Porter or their D-Dub Porter (even though both are only seasonal beers).

Picked up a sixer in late January from Total Wine for $6.99.
Beer poured cola brown with a nice tan head that is leaving some lacing behind.
Nose is nothing special. Very faint roasted malts.
Taste is a light roasted malt, some chocolate, and a decent amount of hopping so that it is not overly sweet.
Mouthfeel is light and disappointing.
Overall this is a decent brew and would drink if offered. It is lacking the body i would expect from a beer with a 6.9 abv.
