Damn, that's a cocoa aroma and flavor. The smooth chocolate — reminds me of Rogue's Chocolate Stout — rolls into light caramel malts with deeper roasts popping up with a little espresso and ground coffee. Cool beer, check it out if you can. It's a touch big, so you might want to save it for dessert. (304 characters)

Pay-it-forward Cocoa Porter [7%] on tap at the brewpub in Lexington.

The superb aroma is the strong point of this beer. It is rich, slightly sweet, and has a fine contribution from both dark roasted grains and cocoa nibs. Hints of toffee and dark fruits.

Medium+ body with medium-low carbonation.
Excellent aftertaste, with some hops showing. (347 characters)

Pots super dark brown with a light brown fluffy head. Huge chocolate and malt aroma. Sweet coffee, chocolate, molasses, vanilla and faint hops. Creamy mouth with very little bitterness. A nice porter. (200 characters)

This one actually seems like a bit more of a stout that a traditional porter. Deep black in color with a fleeting tan head followed by significant lacing. The aroma and taste are dominated with coffee with some chocolate. The mouthfeel is ok with a decent enough carbonation level. Overall a decent beer and certainly worth a try. (334 characters)

Phenomenal porter, almost reminds me of a Baltic Porter in regards to the hop aroma and taste. Overall balances well to create a bittersweet brew with a hint of cocoa on the finish. (181 characters)

Enjoyed from a can in a pint glass. This fantastic porter pours a thick brownish black with a nice thick light brown head that lingers with great lacing. Nose of cocoa, coffee, and deeply roasted grains. Flavors follow the nose with cocoa and light coffee throughout, and a muted sweetness to the sides. Nice roasted aftertaste with the cocoa. Very drinkable smooth mouth feel, lightly carbonated and coating makes this a stout drinkers porter to enjoy.

Poured from the can into my HF glass.

Appeared jet black in color with a one finger light brown head.

Holy roasted malts in the nose. Smells of dark bakers chocolate and toast.

Taste is nice. Definetely roasty...chocolate not quite as present as I would like but good. Creamy.

Mouthfeel is medium in thickness with decent but light carbonation.

Overall a tasty treat! (375 characters)

12 ounce can, canned on 03/12/15. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that stayed around a little while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and some earthy hoppiness. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there's also some molasses noticeable too. It seems hoppier than I expected it to be. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and slick with a good amount of carbonation. One of my friends gave me a can of this, I think I'm going to have to pick up a 6 pack the next time I see it! (615 characters)
