Out of a 12 ounce bottle, with many thanks to Jon. On to the beer:

The beer is nearly black and leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. It has a pleasant dry cocoa powder aroma, mixed with a kiss of brownie mix. Luckily, the flavor isn't too sweet. Tomoyknocker delivers an easy drinking cocoa porter which leaves notes of brownie mix, brownie batter, and a dash of citrus hops. It's a light bodied beer, and I feel it's more than just a beer to snuggle with during the winter. I personally would happy to drink this as dessert during the summer.

This is my favorite Tommyknocker beer. You must get some around the holidays. Tastes like beer-flavored hot chocolate, and that's a very good thing when it's below zero outside. It's got a good porter base, but the chocolate addition really gives it a great flavor without being bitter or heavy. Light alcohol content helps too. One of my very favorite winter seasonals.

Sweetened cocoa powder in the nose, darker chocolate but not at all bitter. Taste matches the nose, with a touch of honey on the tongue in the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and and rather slick. Nothing about this suggests a winter warmer - just a simple, straightforward English porter tweaked to taste like a cup of cocoa. Needs a better-defined body and malt foundation.
