From a few years ago, another one that should have been cracked fresher,but oh well. Thanks to vicanncam for this one, shared with many people at my cellar cleaning.
Very little head, very dark brown color.
Nose chocolate water, little thin, cocoa, little dark syrupy but very aged malt, caramel, brown sugar molasses
Taste semi sweet but lots of choc, creamy milk choc mostly, little caramel and chewy creamy, little lactose, mild bitterness, choc milk. Finish is more light milk choc, dusty cocoa, little caramel.
Mouth med bod mild syrupy, decent carb.
Overall bit of a letdown.

Review from notes taken a couple months back. While on vacation in the south, I learned about this brew but missed out on bottles as someone had cleaned out every store in the area. Surprised to find it weeks later on tap at Als. The brew pours brown in color with a light tan cap that holds well leaving patchy lace.
The aroma includes plenty of raw cocoa nibs and vanilla. It is somewhat earthen, roasty and herbal with a trace mineral aspect that I dont totally dig. Other than that, it smells pretty much as expected.
The flavor includes plenty of raw cocoa nib somewhat earthy and nearly vegetative that blends to grassy and herbal. Some hints of vanilla and a long lingering cocoa aftertaste with mild alcohol warmth. As it warms, it gets a touch of dark fruity alcohol.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Terrapin has done better with chocolate porters/stouts. This one is surprisingly unimpressive. It reads well on the label but im glad I didnt have 22oz to force through.

poured a deep brown with very, very foamy head. aroma was dominated by chocolate powder. chocolate also dominated the palate with a surprising weak malt backbone. the body was on the thin side with very little linger or aftertaste.
sounds like i hated it but i didn't. i enjoyed it very much. it is somewhat thin for a porter but this is an almost sessionable chocolate beer. it was light but full of chocolate flavor. wished the choc flavor had been a bit darker though. would drink again. good beer for people that don't like beer kinda beer.
