Rich black porter with a unique blend of chocolate, coffee, roasted and nutty flavors. Brewed with cocoa powder and conditioned with cacao nibs from Taza Chocolate. Bold flavors from the cacao nibs and black malts are balanced with a special blend of pale malts, oats and wheat to produce a lush and lingering mouthfeel.

12oz bottle from buking21 (thank you!). Bottled 4/15/14. Served in a Microbrasserie Charlevoix goblet.

Pours nearly black with mahogany highlights and a finger of pale tan head. Decent retention and lacing.

A simple but nice enough nose of chocolate, roast malts and vague caramel.

Tastes of roasty malts, chocolate, pitted fruit skins and mild coffee. A good bit of bitterness and no trace of alcohol.

Light but creamy feel with moderate carbonation. The finish is bittersweet with cocoa and roast.

Porter Square Porter may not be breaking any boundaries but is a solid take on the style.

Pours dark cloudy brown with a razor thin beige head. Aroma and taste is of sweet dark roasted chocolate malt with a mild dry roasted coffee bitterness. Palate is a medium smooth body with a bit of creamy mouth feel. The finish is the same as taste. Has a very rich and choclatey flavor. Overall a very good and delicious porter. drink up.

Poured into a pint glass from a 22 oz bomber.

Really noticed a roastiness, almost like roasted caramelized vegetables. Tasted more alcoholic than the 6.5%. It's hard to notice the chocolate.

The flavor of this beer enhanced the otherwise odd taste of Lays Cappuccino Potato Chips.

Overall good but not great.
