3.44/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

A- pours a nearly opaque black with a big creamy off-white head that has good retention and eventually leaves some sticky lace behind

S- chocolaty malt with some fruity esters, candied sugar and cocoa

T- lightly roasted chocolate malt, some fruity flavors and a dry finish. Not really getting as much chocolate as I expected, due to the name of the beer

M- Medium body and carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, ABV is hidden very well

O- A middle of the pack porter that seems to be lacking the chocolate that it's name entails. Wouldn't pick it again

3.94/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a: its a watery black color with not much light penetrating - 2 finger frothy tan head that marshmellows at the top

s: sweet baking chocolate and roasty toasty malts up front. there is a hint of sweet malt and figs and raisins in here as well. creamy with some oaky notes (might be from the roasted malts), and ends with some nice vanilla extract aromas at the end

t: this follows the nose quite well, however I'm a little surprised to be picking up as much alcohol in the flavor as i am. you're first hit with the roasted malts, which provide some initial bitterness, then its cut by that alcohol. there is definitely a hint of those sweet dark fruits in here as well. the chocolate, though, is not so present - only a hint of like powered chocolate. this ends with toasted malts, and a nice vanilla oaky flavor

m: medium - typical mouthfeel for a porter. quite a bit of carbonation though

o: disappointed that there is not more chocolate in here. its a nice robust beer, that does have some nice flavors - however, i would have like a little more chocolate, and a little less alcohol in the flavor. still enjoyable though

3.93/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. No freshness or bottle date.

Nice brownish black color. Thick, foamy 1/2" head, coffee colored. Leaves thick clingy lacing.

Aromas of mild roasted malt, semisweet chocolate chips, buttery shortbread. Smells kind of creamy. Nice but pretty faint.

Creamy and roasty taste with rich chocolate notes. Milk chocolate, bittersweet baking chocolate, with sweet vanilla on the end. Something like Cookie Crisp cereal. A little touch of molasses. The sweet chocolate and vanilla is balanced well with the bitterness of the roasted malt. Decadent but not heavy.

Medium bodied, smooth, a little syrupy. Kind of like chocolate milk. Compliments the taste well. Ends fairly clean.

I like it. A full, rich desserty beer without being too sweet or over the top.
