Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-17-2004

Classic Pairings in History: Stevie Wonder & Paul McCartney Super Dave Osborne & Mr. Fuji Cheddar cheese & pickles Bob & Doug McKenzie Mork & Mindy Bonnie & Clyde Chocolate & Beer!!! We'd say that Longboat is a classic chocolate porter, but lets face it, who's ever heard of a chocolate porter? It is, however, a rich dark ale, with a distinctive chocolate finish. Comes in a 650mL bottle, cause 341mL just isn't enough!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Dark cola colour with thin beige head. Opaque and bubbly.

Smell- Milk chocolate with slight caramel aroma.

Taste- Bitter cocoa at first but then goes to the milk chocolate that was detected in the smell. No lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Lighter bodied than expected. Slightly watery. Nice bubbliness.

Overall- A decent chocolate flavoured porter. A little disappointed by the mouthfeel, but the taste is pleasant and the aromas smell delicious.

650ml bottle poured into pint glass 11/12/11

A dark cola with a short lived dark tan head that leaves no lace

S chocolate milk with some cold coffee and sour fruit

T some more dark malts on top of what I smell, there's something not quite right here, its not offensive but like a weak milk stout that's not grooving with me

M lacking body but has plenty of bubbles, almost a little foamy with a short lived burnt malt aftertaste

O like I said above nothing offensive but nothing special

far below my Phillips standards for sure, pretty average stuff from an above average brewery
