Notes/Commercial Description:
This dark chocolate Porter is a very rich, roasty beer with top notes of chocolate derived from freshly roasted cacao. Strong but relatively smooth on the palate, its malty sweetness is evenly balanced with bitterness, and a slight dryness from the alcoholic strength. Look for solid notes of coffee, licorice, mild chocolate and more subtle hints of fruit and spices.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured out black with a thin layer of tannish head but it didn't stick around very long.

S: Cocoa is highly present as well as dark roasted malt. Just a hint of sweetness.

T: Very similar to the smell. There is also a strong earthy and leafy hop presence.

M: Medium heavy body that is a little creamy. Medium carbonation.

O: A solid pickup. The booze is very well hidden. While it was a very good offering, it failed to really stick out in any way for something that was advertised as a limited edition brew.
