On tap at Prescott Brewing
Clear but very dark, with a durable tan head. The glass is left nicely coated after each tip.

Aroma: Chocolate! Lots of chocolate, with hints of dark fruits and dark baked bread.

Flavor: Semi-sweet chocolate with hints of hops and medium+ dark malts. Some smoke and dark malts come out in the finish and aftertaste, but chocolate still dominates. Fun and pleasant but a bit too sweet.

Feel: Medium body and medium carbonation; creamy smooth

O: great dessert beer and for chocolate lovers.

My wife's cousin brought this in from Prescott, AZ, where she lives to Texas. The growler certainly made the trip.

Smells like chocolate. Dark, roasty chocolate. The wife's cousin thought it was a Stout but the light color and clarity made me think it was a porter. Turns out I was right, as confirmed by BA.

Very sweet at the front with just enough bitterness at the back end. Slight creamy mouthfeel, but generally light and drinkable. It seems the chocolate is primarily in the nose. My taste buds mostly get roastiness and slight bitterness.

Good beer.

Easily one of the best beers I have ever had. It was so good that I started texting people telling them that they had to come get some.

Glad I had a chance to visit the Prescott Brewing Co.The beer looks pretty when poured, but the smell is so overpoweringly chocolate I wondered if I was drinking chocolate milk. Once I tried it, this porter tasted pretty darn good.and the mouthfeel was passable, a bit creamy and not too heavy. Its a bit to sweet for my porter taste, but I did get a 64oz growler and polished it off in two evenings. Yeah this is good for a porter, just SO much chocolate.

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.
