Dark muddy brown with a light tan frothy blanket.

Dry baker's cocoa is there right up front on the nose, with some roasted malt following shortly after, and even some astringent hopping.

Taste is tangy with a little hop sting at first, but it sweetens up quickly and brings in that cocoa and roasted malt and maybe a hint of orange peel and honey, with a little raisin.

Finish is fairly dry.

This is a decent east drinking light porter perfect for when you don't feel II've drinking a heavy hitter. I believe that all of these people rating this so low had unrealistic expectations about what this beer is supposed to be. It's not great by any means but decent enough to enjoy.

I picked up a variety pack of TommyKnocker at the store. I decided to try this one next and as with most cocoa based beers I was disapointed. It isnt carbonated enough to make up for the mix of flavors. I think more carbonation could balance the beer.

This brew pours almost black but shows some brownish-red when held up to the light. There is a 1.5 finger off white head, some of which lasts on top until the end. Medium lacing.

The smell is musty, dank and boozy. Chocolate, sweet and slightly roasted malts are present.

The taste follows the nose with light chocolate and roasted malts dominating. There are some sweet malts and a boozy flavor that comes in near the end. No detectable hops.

Overall this brew is boozy and kind of flat. Not very exciting to drink.
