Best porter I've had this season. It's light, but so robust in flavor. Great balance of chocolate deliciousness and the perfect beer!! Will not disappoint, it taste like heaven!!! Happy Day's to the best Chocolate Porter I've had in a while!

Was not expecting this to be as good as it was. The chocolate is very pronounced in this easy drinking porter. The smell was maltness and sweet. Silky smooth. Very good

This beer pours into what appears to be a jet black beer, until you hold it up to the light, when it shines a very dark brown with flecks of light illuminating the top and bottom. The head is a nice foamy, dark khaki, and leaves behind no lace. It smells ever so slightly of peanut butter. It tastes great, with a nice smooth malt taste coming in first, but leaving with a peanut butter finish. The feel is really quite good. It's smooth and yet doesn't finish watery. Overall, I'm impressed with this beer. I wasn't sure how it would hold up, but I'd track another can down just to enjoy another glass!

Served in a 12oz snifter.

A: pours out a dark brown with a tan head. the head faded quickly, but this might also be due to the fact that is was poured from a growler and could have lost some carbonation.

S: smells of toffee and roasted malt. i get a little bit of coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma as well. i get some fruit, like plum and date. has a nice sweet aroma without being overly sweet.

T: i get some caramel/toffee, roasted malt and there is definitely some chocolate notes. It finishes pretty dry and with a little bitterness like a dark chocolate would. there is also some alcohol in there.

M: it has a medium-thin body, with a little carbonation. it is a smooth beer.

D: it is pretty easy to drink and i could see myself ordering more than one of these.

this is a chocolate barleywine. a friend got a growler from the brewer and shared it last night with us. overall this was a good beer, and i really like the chocolate notes in the barleywine.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque dark amber in color,with a large, dense rocky tan head, and scattered, Belgian-style lacing.

Aroma: Prominent dark caramel allayed with bitter cocoa, and coffee.

Taste: The toast begins with dark caramel, which soon drifts towards chocolate, mild coffee, vanilla, nuts, and sweet alcohol. Later in the taste, bitter cocoa dominates along with dark roasted malt. Finishes with a lingering, mild burnt note.

Mouth feel: Very soft and full, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Really quite nice, better than I could reasonably expect. The price of $8.99 for a six-pack of cans seems very reasonable.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

More like a brown ale, IMO, but pretty tasty. The chocolate came out real well in this one.
