This is a chocolate milk porter that is very smooth. It is not bitter at all, and may fool you as being a watery porter. But if you pay attention, you will notice the creamy taste of the beer. It is almost as drinking an alcoholic chocolate milk, it is very creamy and very chocolate tasting.

I really like this beer because it is not overly bitter. At the same time, I appreciate that it doesn't have much alcohol like other porters. It is a nice milk chocolate porter that you could have at any time of the day.

Aroma was almost non-existent. Not much carbonation either. Great chocolate taste. Beautiful dark color. Not a heavy beer.

A- very dark brown with some red highlights coming through, nice lacing with light tan head.

S- huge chocolate on the nose, sweet milk chocolate, smells pretty much like chocolate milk.

T- just a crazy amount of choclate. Bakers chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, almost like a roasted cocoa bean at the end and vanilla.

M- creamy and full, good amount of carbonation

O- overall a very well crafted beer. It hit the style perfectly. They were going for a chocolate porter and that's exactly what you get. Awesome stuff.
