Notes/Commercial Description:
Porter by standard description is a rich, sweet ale that is not easily seen through. Porter by Legend standards exceeds these parameters slightly. Legend Chocolate Porter takes on a new level of Porterness. We were generous in our additions of dark malts for this brew. These include Caramel and Chocolate malts, as well as our standard “Porter malts”. The addition of natural cocoa extract at filtering time gives this brew a strong choco-nose and a deep lingering Wonkaesque finish. German Tettenang hops are used for a clean balancing bitterness. Expect a dark black beer with a rich and sweet aromatic presence. The flavor is of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, and more dark chocolate.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bomber into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deep brown nearly black color with a big billowy tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a light level of lace on the sides of the glass

Smell- The aroma is quite heavy of roasted malt and a semi sweet chocolate smell. Mixed with these aromas are some sweeter caramel and vanilla aromas as well as the lightest touch of a nutty smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt and cocoa flavor. As the flavor moves on it sweetens more as flavors of a caramel sweetness and vanilla enter the taste. These bring a more milk chocolate like flavor to the tongue. Toward the end however, the chocolate flavors of the brew grow even stronger bringing back a more cocoa and less milk chocolate flavor to the tongue. In the end, with a light hop flavor of a earthy nature and a light nutty flavor coming to the tongue, a lightly bittered semi-sweet chocolate flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. The lower carbonation accentuates the dark roasted flavors as well as the chocolate flavors rather nicely, although a slightly thicker body may have enhanced these even more.

Overall- A rather tasty and sweeter chocolate porter. While not the most potent or flavorful overall it is rather easy to drink and quite satisfying. Not bad.
