12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler
Look: Very dark with a tan head
Smell: Definitely chocolate...cocoa, heavy malt
Taste: It is what it say it is...taste like a chocolate shake. I taste more milk chocolate, very sweet
Feel: very creamy and smooth. Chocolate taste lingers
Overall: I like this one but I don't know if I can drink more than one of these. Very rich and creamy and sweet and it works really well the first couple sips. But by he end of the bottle it gets to be a little much. But very well done.

This is a very filling beer, and quite true to its name! I could not finish the bottle, as it was really like having a dense, chocolate drink. The flavor is chocolatey, rich, and slightly bitter. It has a good amount of sweetness. This is absolutely unique beer, and one I will be buying again!

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass.
L--The darkest possible brown with a tan head that suck around for a couple of minutes and left some lacing.
S--Roasted malts and cocoa are prominent.
T--The best way to describe it is that it very much resembles a chocolate shake, just like the bottle says. Milk chocolate is definitely more noticable than dark, which seems odd for a porter, but, damn it, it works.
F--Mouth coating with creamy chocolateness.
O--This is a really good one, if you like chocolate.

Pours a clear deep brown with garnet highlights, producing 2+ fingers of tan, somewhat lasting, frothy head that leaves a thin wash of lacing. Aroma is chocolate coco, rich dark malt, pumpernickel, coffee, roasted nuts & toffee. Taste is semisweet dark chocolate & chocolate milk, rich dark bread & toast, coffee, roasted nuts, toffee & vanilla. Finishes sweet, bready & chocolatey with a kick of spice. Aftertaste is spicy roast, cocoa & nuts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-high carbonation, creamy, smooth & a little chewy with a degree of spiciness in the finish & dry aftertaste.
