Haven't written a review in a while, but this beer made me almost rush to my computer.

Hangar 24 has been disappointing me lately with their "specialty" beers. There's a consistent fake taste to whatever flavor they are adding. This is no exception. The chocolate flavor has a powdery, weird commercial milk chocolate flavor, taste and mouthfeel. Doesn't have that rich cocoa nib type flavor I'm looking for, but more of a cheap chocolate taste. Had to dump out the bottom third became too annoying for me.

Bottled: unk

brown, excellent clarity and a surface etched with light dirty cream foam. Nose is almost spicy with malts and some hops (noble) with a bit of cocoa, but no vanilla. Taste has roasted malts with a bit of sweet rye and some cheap base malt oxidation - a truly uneventful mouthful. Thin with sharp, yet fleeting carb and an off dry finish. Meh.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance- Looks like any other porter on earth...Like the lacing, but that's from the carbonation???

Smell - Wonderful chocolate notes and kilned malts.

Taste - Meh...the champagne like carbonation adds acidity and tough bite that detracts from everything else. Is this supposed to be a new style with this amount of CO2?

Mouth feel - feels nothing like a porter. Again, the massive amounts of CO2 make this beer one of the weirdest in the porter world ever..Take this as an example of what not to do. Good try though.

Overall- Meh...I will, and suggest to anybody else, put it back on the shelf.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

pour a dark brown with a mahogany hue to it when held to the light, 1 finger khaki head with decent retention and spotty lacing

smell is dominated by chocolate, some coffee notes. as it warms you get some dark fruits.

taste fallows the nose, dark chocolate dominated a little nutty and dark fruits can be found as it warms

light-medium bodied, medium carbonation that leaves the mouth dry

overall it wasn't all that great IMO, pretty one sided on the smell and taste. had wasn't a fan of the after taste ether.

2.9/5  rDev -21%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Pours a deep, dark near black auburn brown with a light, brownish off-white 2 finger head. Great retention, leaving a strong layer of microbubbles floating on the surface. Moderate lacing on the glass.

Smell - Not strongly aromatic; touches on chocolatey roasted malt and a buttery character.

Taste - Not what was expected. More off-flavored butter flavor than chocolate. Chocolate is present, but moderate at best. Acidic bite. Moderate roast near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with low to moderate carbonation. Acidic. Fair smoothness.

Overall - When drinking this, the first thing that comes to mind is neither chocolate, nor porter; not good when the name of your brew is 'Chocolate Porter'. I'm one and done with this beer. There are dozens upon dozens of chocolate forward brews I'd much rather have.
