Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip.

Opaque in color. Hints of mahogany around the edges. Very thin layer of foamy head that quickly dissipates into a halo around the edge of the glass.

Chocolate on the nose. Hints of earth tones. Very small tiniest bit of onion.

Very heavy on roasted and chocolate malt flavors. A bit on the sweet side, very little to no bitterness.

Creamy mouthfeel. Almost that of milk.

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.

Nice dark brown ale, good head retention, beautiful lacing. Thin mouth feel with a hint of dark malts and chocolate. Nothing extraordinary but it is pretty easy to drink if you like dark beers.

Dark brown and black appearance, pretty much standard. Mild chocolate aroma.

Taste delivered more chocolate, pretty smooth mouthfeel. Viscosity might be slightly lower than most porters these days. Neat to have in a can. Creamy texture. Carbonation subdued but right for this style of beer. I dunno where the double chocolate comes from, its there, but hardly 'double'.

This Sex Panther needs some Viagra, or at the very least a shit ton more chocolate...

Pours a light black, not nearly as dark as you would expect from a 2x chocolate porter. The feel is lacking as well (more of a black IPA as far as the look/feel of the beer)

I guess the title could be changed to a (weakass) chocolate porter, but don't let the Panther fool you with promises of double chocolatey goodness!
