look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but closer inspection reveals that it is actually clear garnet in color when held up to a bright light. No carbonation is visible. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down rather quickly, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cocoa nibs are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has lots of chocolately flavors and bits of sweetness from the cocoa nibs. It almost tastes like a watered down version of Hershey's chocolate syrup. Little if any bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a really enjoyable porter that has the magnitude of chocolate aromas and flavors that you would expect from a stout but has the drinkability afforded by that of a porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- pours pitch black with a small foamy light-tan colored head that reduces to a small layer floating on top, leaving a bit of lace behind

S- roasted cocao nibs, ash tray, faint chocolate malt, metallic aroma, milk chocolate

T- sweet cocoa flavor up front with a hint of dark fruit mid-palate, sweet toffee on the finsih

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a smooth-yet-dry-finish

O- good chocolate porter, would like to see a little more prominent flavors for chocolate/cocoa though, once was enough for me
