On-tap at Pacific Standard, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is almost jet black in color. It poured with a thin tan head that died down and left a small ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of chocolate in the nose along with some hints of cream.
T: The overall taste is quite chocolaty and these flavors somewhat resemble something you would put on an ice cream sundae (like Hershey’s syrup). No bitterness is perceptible and no other flavors (like roasted malts) are noticeable.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and relatively smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, goes down easy and is quite sessionable. I would have no problem drinking a few of these in one sitting.

First had: on tap at Broad Axe Tavern, Ambler, PA

Damn tasty porter right here. Kind of reminiscent of last year's batch of Voodoo Cowbell. Dark brown-black pour into a chalice, moderate tan head that sank to a ringlet and left a bit of lacing on the glass. No ABV listed. Aroma of roasty malts, cocoa and chocolate...I pretty much knew this was going to be a good one from the scent alone. Taste of creamy chocolate milk, with moderate roastiness that is slightly dominated by sweetness; a bit of earthy hops in the finish. This was definitely served too cold, so I let it warm up a bit for the flavors and body to come out more. Smooth mouthfeel, not quite full-bodied--definitely a porter and not a stout--very solid and drinkable overall. Quite a surprise from River Horse, I must say. They should definitely continue making this one, and offer it on nitro.
