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

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.

22oz bottle from Khourey's (Las Vegas, NV). 7.99. No bottling information apparent. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours dark brown with a finger and a half of thick tan head. A thin cap remains and leaves just a little lace.

Smells of bakers cocoa, chocolate malt, faint vanilla and a little sugar.

Plenty of chocolate flavor. Cocoa powder, dark chocolate and chocolate malts are most prevalent with hints of vanilla, powdered sugar, chalk, coffee, earthy and mildly metallic. Not a whole lot of depth but it delivers the chocolate for sure.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Dry, bittersweet, earthy cocoa and vanilla finish.

A one trick pony but overall a decent brew. Less roasty and a tad thinner than I'd prefer in a porter. I'm not disappointed that I grabbed the bottle but I won't be hunting for another.
