Appears dark black in color with a minimal tan head that settled to a thin cap. Not much for lacing is left down the glass. First impression of the aroma is the cacao. Forward but not overpowering. Balanced by the dark malt. No roasted malt is detected. Flavor is fairly balanced affair. Starts off with dark chocolate that is balanced by the dark, grainy malt. Has a bitter chocolate finish. Some hoppy bitterness also helps balance the beer. Medium body and nicely carbonated. I would not say it has an outstanding feel, but just solid. Lacks the creamy texture of the great porters. A very solid effort. One pint is enough for me although the flavor is balanced.

Dark chocolatey brown, opaque with a thin skien of foam. Fits of lacing coalesce as the glass is emptied. Smells of cacao with malt. Pretty straightforward. Taste is the semi bitter cacao chocolate lightly chalky, dark malt. No sweetness or fruit. No roasted elements. Mouthfeel is medium and dry with moderate carbonation. Seems fairly one or two dimensional, strongly semi sweet chocolate bitterness perhaps enhanced by hop, but I didn't get any distinct hop elements. Overall this one has the cacao namesake covered in the flavor profile.
