12 oz. can - Sell by 03/14/2019 stamped on the bottom.

Pours black with a creamy tan head. Looks like espresso. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate/cocoa. Slight earthy touch. Slight roast. Robust.

On the palate, cocoa powder dominates. Cocoa powder lingers.

The chocolate in the taste and feel (it even has a powdery texture) is more like cocoa powder than chocolate. It's decent, but seems one-dimensional cocoa powder after a bit.

Can from the Whole Foods in Sedona.

A very dark brown with a thin beige head that falls off rapidly leaving little lacing, this looks decent. The nose is sweetened chocolate syrup with milk chocolate and sugar along with a mild roast note. The chocolate character is mildly fake. On the palate, this is sweet but thin with fake chocolate along with a mild roast, a little coffee. The mid-palate is fatty and rancid, and the mouthfeel is thin and limpid. Sweet on the finish, this beer is rather terrible.

Smooth, sweet, chocolaty--really good! Perfect dessert beer. I would love to set one of these in front of someone who says, "I don't like beer." There's nothing not to like here--as long as you like chocolate!

Pours dark brown with little to no head. Aromas of chocolat, malt, sugar, and a touch of coffee. Tastes of chocolate right from tge start. Can almost be described in the vain of choc chip cookies. Light hop bitterness with a medium semi sweet finish.

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.
