From 01/12/15 notes. 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

Pours a dark brown; almost black. Lots of roasted malts, burnt malts, peanuts, toasted malts,a nd bitter dark chocolate. Medium body and low carbonation.

Overall not a bad beer but nothing too special. A decent porter with more bitter chocolate than sweet or milk chocolate.

Maybe I am just not a porter person but my first porter was a major let down. Below average beer.

Despite the mixed reviews on this beer I have no issues with it..had a bomber last nite and I thought was yummy..smells like dark chocolate and roasted malts and the taste follows the nose nice chocolate notes and a touch of coffee,alcohol was well hidden a better mouthfeel and it would be excellent...not the greatest chocolate porter but not disappointing B+ verging on A- in my book

Serving type: on tap at the brewery

Pours a deep crimson brown with off white bubbles. Smells of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, a small hint of vanilla, with a pleasant earthy scent. Taste reflects the smell. Heavier dark chocolate, roasted coffee, more vanilla I the finish, with a nice toasted or charred flavor throughout. Feel is a bit of a let down, thinner mouthfeel with ample carbonation makes this feel very light which doesn't fit with the chocolate and roasted notes very well (at least in my opinion). Overall, this is an easy drinking beer with great chocolate notes that drinks deceptively easy for 8%.
