Pours a dark brown and nearly black opaque color; a thin ring like and slightly tan lace retains throughout. The first sniff is of dark fruit, then, nutty, vanilla, wood and a lighter coffee roast. The taste has a surprising mild to moderate hops bitterness that sometimes detracts from the maltiness. However, I do taste the roasted malt, nutty and coffee like qualities. The sweetness comes out in the finish, it is a vanilla sweet and a zesty almost citric like feel. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. The body is smooth and medium, close to light. Perhaps a bit thin for a porter.
An easy to drink porter. I love the title, but, it is not as robust as it implies and the balance is perhaps slightly too skewed on the hops side. However, it is a good and flavorful beer.

I quite enjoyed this one. The highlight for me was a rich, dense, malty flavor--some grain and chocolate and not a lot of fuss other than that (not super boozy or vanilla-rich or sweet, just well balanced between grainy and chocolate). Nice head and color. I found the smell just very slightly metallic and not selling the flavor as well as it deserved. Overall, a solid porter, though--enjoyed it!

Pours dark chocolate color with moderate head and lacing of a slightly off white chocolate color. Smells sweet chocolatey malts, mild coffee, slightly roasty. Tastes sweet, roasted chocolate malt, balanced bitterness, quite a bit of flavor. Goes down smooth and slightly creamy. Overall this is a great beer I am glad I picked up. I just pounded this beer for this review and ready for a few more. Porter is one of my favorite styles and this does not dissapoint.

Pours dark with just enough of a white head. Slight aroma, but I wanted more. Taste is solid roast balanced by a bit of sweetness.

Pours a dark brown color with plenty of ruby highlights throughout the glass. Big light brown head with good retention and plenty of filmy rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malt and milk chocolate. Taste is very good. Roasted malts, a little bitterness and plenty of milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium in richness and very smooth like a milk stout with some lactose present. A good porter, goes down easy and is quite satisfying.

A very solid and drinkable porter. Nice chocolate notes with a small note of roasted malt. Very easy to drink.

The color of a Hershey bar sets the tone for this beer. Chocolate dominates the look, the smell and the taste of this porter. Slight hint of roasted malt, but its mostly sweet milk chocolate. Smooth and highly drinkable. I wish this had shelfspace in Chicagoland.
