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.

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.

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.

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.

Cheers

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!

Served in a becker glass

L - It is dark brown with some rust colored highlights. it is capped with three to four inches of tan head with good staying power and decent lacing.

S - The nibs shine on this one. I smell cocoa and chocolate. I also smell some caramel.

T - The taste is of unsweetened chocolate. The chocolate is there but in a bitter form. I get some roasted malt on the finish.

F - Medium

O - It started out good. I liked the cocoa and chocolate flavors. The bitterness was a little over the top for me. It is a decent beer, and I am glad I got to try it.
