Chocolate Hazelnut Porter, or CHP as we call it, is a dessert in a glass. It is a rich, robust porter bursting with luscious chocolate and hazelnut. Notes of coffee and caramel round out this delicious treat.

Pours black under a creamy beige head that sticks well to the surface. Aroma is thick with chocolate, toffee, hazelnut and nougat. Sweet nutty, milk chocolaty flavor - as expected. Still has a nice porter quality to it with lingering cocoa and raisin bread. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, finishing a touch bitter. Plenty flavorful...good for a dessert beer.

Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma has lots of hazelnut and chocolate right up front.
The taste starts with mild chocolate bitterness, then roasted malt sweet and carries through to a tapered sweet ending.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Excellent balance for a decadent beer.

Pours a beautiful black color with a one finger head lacking retention. Chocolate and hazelnut are present and notable in the aroma along side alcohol. A Nutty flavor up front provides a lingering bitterness to compliment chocolate.

Overall this is a drinkable brew but there isn't much too it. It lacks in complexity and dimension.
