The chocolate pops right off the bat with a great aroma and taste. It isn't overwhelming and then the potency of the beer kicks in. Great with wings or a burger. Who needs dessert?

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes of very sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall it's a very tasty chocolate porter, my only complaint is it's a little sweet.

Malty sweet chocolate porter, could use a bit more bite.

Bought at Total Wines in Glendale, AZ and transported back to Ohio and drank from the can moments ago. Bottom stamped "Sell by 4/2/17". So, apparently this one fresh unlike several other single cans bought that day. (Note to self: check before purchasing more clearly in the future).

Opened and got a whiff of strong chocolate and though "oh, no...Yoo-Hoo". Then drank from the can and...not bad at all. Pleasantly surprised that it was only a subtle chocolate taste and did not have the porter "burnt" taste that many do. This was a very smooth offering with low carbonation. Many beers with little carbonation taste "flat" to me, but this wasn't flat at all. Gotta say I wish I'd have bought a 6-pack instead of one.

Dark brown, and ruby around the edges. A quickly dissipating khaki head, with very spotty lacing. The aroma is of chocolate. But, like, fake super sweet chocolate. A Tootsie Roll x2 for sweetness. The flavor is more balanced, not too sweet. Still, artificial tasting. Tootsie roll-ish, but not nearly as good as Boulder's Shake. Feel is dry, medium thin feel, average carbonation. Above average brew, barely.

Pours dark black with big foamy head and great lacing. Smells fantastic, very full on chocolate with a roasted coffee mix, some coco and vanilla also. This is where I was bummed out, the taste is good with chocolate and vanilla and some mild coffee notes but man it is just too light. If this beer had a more robust taste and higher ABV it could be epic but after having other similar beers it just feels like a diet version. So is it worth a try sure, some who enjoy lighter stuff will like it, but for anyone with a desire for a punch and deep flavors it will fall short.

Big thanks to DblDiamond for sending this can my way for the NFL Confidence pool win! Reviewed from long-standing notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City snifter glass.

A: Dark brown and opaque with a one-finger foamy tan head that has subpar retention. The blush of initial visible carbonation dissipates quickly and is left with very little movement in the glass.

S: Chocolate up front – a milk chocolate with a sprinkle of cacao powder. There’s vanilla and roasted malts lurking in the background. A nice aroma, albeit fairly one dimensional.

T: It starts with more of a malted milk chocolate flavor than expected – like Robin’s Eggs without the candy shell. There’s a bit of sweet toffee along with the vanilla. Then a punch of vanilla Yankee candle and vanilla cream heart-box chocolate - this kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. Some roast character prevents it from being a malty sweet bomb, but it remains overall quite sweet. It finishes with lingering sweet chocolate and the weird vanilla flavor.

M: The body is on the light side for a porter. Carbonation on the low side of average range. Alcohol content is fairly low.

O: The vanilla flavor not being integrated really hurts this one in my opinion. It has its upsides - the malt bill seems well-planned and the chocolate flavor is nice. But the vanilla is a sledgehammer on a tenpenny nail.

12 oz can and on tap.
This is an interesting beer, for sure. It has a super enormous malted chocolate smell and taste. This is like Shake on steroids. By no means should you skip out on tasting this, you'll love it or hate it. So my 50/50 overall.

If they made it 9% and gave it more body to match, I think this could be epic. However, Young's Double Chocolate beats this by a mile because this currently lacks refinement. It's just super gutsy.

Prescott's chocolate porter is liquid dessert with neat booze and an aroma that screams CHOCOLATE! It features a sweet overall taste with chocolate and the forefront and light roasted edges, and to my surprise, a small defect of burnt plastic.
