3.8/5 rDev +5.6%
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.

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.

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.

The beer is drk brown/black in color with a minimal off white head that leaves no lacing. It smells like roasty dark malts with chocolate and coffee. The taste is of a nice light porter (imo) that is roasty, chocolaty and coffee-like. Very light vanilla/creamy notes. Mouthfeel is medium, with light roasty aftertaste and no alcohol is detectable. Well balanced session beer but nothin to write home about.

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).

S - cocoa powder.
T - the chocolate flavor is there from start to finish with some roastiness about midway through.
F - medium bodied with a smooth, sometimes creamy feel.
O - worth a try but there are much better porters out there.
