a deep amber/brown pour with 2 fingers of off-white fluffy head, causing some great lacing (never seen this much on a porter honestly). smells of chocolate, toffee, nutty overtones. the flavor is of rich and sweet chocolate, almost getting a powdered cocoa flavor. medium body with moderate amount of carbonation, creamy with a slightly chalky feeling on the finish.

this is a pretty damn good porter but a little on the sweet side rather than what i was expecting (a dark roasty chocolate flavor). i'd like to try some more things from this brewery.

Hangar 24 2010 Chocolate Porter. Served on nitro into a half pint glass at Hangar 24. Reviewed from notes taken in late 2012.

A: Pours a lovely bubble show lasting about 20 seconds. Head is one finger of beautiful beige cream, fantastic thickness, and fantastic retention. Body colour is a vibrant understated auburn.

Sm: Cream, mocha, amber malts, hints of chocolate. An average strength aroma.

T: Creamy chocolate, mocha, amber and dark malts, and an artificial cream finish. Simple but pleasant and enjoyable. The chocolate is restrained. Well balanced. The nitro doesn't mute the flavours.

Mf: Smooth, creamy, and wet. Suits the flavours quite well. Good carbonation and thickness.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable. I quite like it. Hides its ABV well. I wouldn't get it again, though. One of the better offerings I've had from this brewery. Nitro was a good choice.

Picked a bomber of this up at City Beer Store for $4.99.

Pours a medium brown with good clarity and a thin topping of light tan foam. Sticky lacing clinging to the glass as the head retreats. Inviting aromas of hot cocoa and roasted malt greet the nose first with a layer of vanilla tucked beneath. Some caramel notes arise later. Chocolate/cocoa-focused on the palette up front with a toasted malty/caramel in the middle and a finish of vanilla/cream soda. Medium-full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice warming sensation from the 8% ABV.

Aptly named, this is one chocolatey porter with a great mouthfeel and flavor while avoiding being overly sweet. That said, I could definitely see this pairing well with a dessert…speaking of, I'll go grab some ice cream now.

Thanks to millerbuffoon for pouring this one. The beer poured out as a nice looking chocolate brown color with a white head that comes and goes rather quickly. There isn't any retention or lacing to this beer. The smell of the beer gives off aromas of roasted malt and a heafty amount of cocoa. The taste of the beer is chocolatey, not a whole lot of anything else going on in this one. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth, it's drinkable, not overly sweet or gross from the chocolate. Overall I think it's a decent beer, would go well with a dessert.
