12oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 10/11/13
A - Nothing out of the ordinary color-wise. Tan head that had noticeably large bubbles.
S - The aroma was dominated by chocolate. Some roasty malts are present too, but take the backseat to the chocolate. Just a hint of coffee.
T - Not as chocolately as the smell. I'd say the roasty malts are the backbone, supported by the chocolates and dark coffee. Not as bitter as you'd expect from a porter with this much chocolate flavor.
M - Mildly dry and medium bodied. Carbonation was a little on the heavy side.
O - Not my favorite porter, but its definitely above par. Maybe I just had high expectations after having their take on IPA yesterday. I think taking the throttle off the chocolate and adding some coffee would improve my opinion.
