No carbonation, very flat with no head. Smell is malty with no hint of chocolate. Taste predominately of dark malt with metallic finish, reminiscent of a flat Guinness. Overall I found this beer to be incredibly underwhelming, definitely not made with real panther.

Incredibly thin mouthfeel. Almost no hint of chocolate.

I know a lot of beer geeks have been talking about this beer but I found it to be very disappointing. This certainly is not a barleywine as labeled here but a chocolate porter. Murjy brownish black color. Mouthfeel was very thin. Flavor was weak bittersweet chocolate. Tan head. Nice name, mediocre beer. I wish someone would tell me why this beer had so much hype.

Rookie move. Fell for the goofy label and name. Damn it all.

A: Looks good enough. Deep hazelnut color on the pour settles to a nearly black with a thin tan head in the glass. Some moderate lace.

S: You're welcome for the 3 bucks, San Tan. Bastards. This smells nearly exactly like my cat after we realize we've left him out in the rain and we finally let him in and then he's been glaring at us from the couch for an hour trying to warm up and he's almost dry enough to pet, but he keeps staring at us and he smells dander-y so we stay away. It smells exactly like that. Maybe a hint of dark chocolate as well.

T: I mean, did they even try on this? Or did they think of the name and realize it didn't matter what they put in the can, idiots like me would buy it? It's like a Michael Bay film in a glass. Thin, an absolute mess, and nothing close to what was advertised. Chocolate? Maybe the faintest hint of that white stuff you scrape off the top of your halloween candy after you find it in the back of your closet where it's been hiding for seven years and you know it's a really bad idea but you don't have any other chocolate in the house so you're game. Don't take the bait, beer friends.

Light brown in color. Pretty light for a porter. Khaki head that cleared fairly quick. A good amount of carbonation.

Roasted malts, instant coffee on the nose. Very little chocolate.

For a "double chocolate" porter, I'm pretty disappointed on the lack of chocolate flavors. Maybe a little cocoa powder notes, but that's it. Typical roasted malts flavors. No abv heat at all. Very, very average tasting porter.

Decent mouthfeel, fairly smooth. Nothing special.

I couldn't have been more disappointed. I fell for the name and label that says "double chocolate". Its thin, barely any chocolate flavor and for the price you could get much better flavors elsewhere.
