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!

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.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #86 (Mar 2014):

Chocolate, Thin, Declawed

“Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.” Not really, but it’s a great name. Unfortunately, it stops there. What’s touted as a “silky smooth Double Chocolate Porter” with “large amounts” of malts is thin, acrid, metallic, nutty and wheaty. The chocolate flavors from cocoa and malts is there, along with some faint molasses, but there’s not much to back it up with. The addition of white wheat seems overdone and out of place, too; it lingers in the finish. Not bad, just expected more.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Firestone pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.69
Purchased: June 12, 2015
Consumed: June 20, 2015
Misc.: Crafted on Nov. 25, 2014

Poured a dark brown, mahogany color with two fingers of tan, frothy head. Above average spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled chocolate, artificial chocolate, dark toffee, caramel, roasty malts, nuts, plum and dark fruits. (Smell - 3.50)

Taste was better than the smell. Got chocolate, roasty malts, roasted nuts, plum, dark fruits, toffee, dark chocolate and smooth dark cocoa nibs. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, smooth finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was decent, but not spectacular. I was wavering on a few of my ratings, but went with what I went with. (Overall - 3.75)
