Black body with a little white head. Chocolate and vanilla powder aroma. Dry serviceable porter. A sipper as it is well dry and has a bitter chocolate as the key taste.Some coffee. Bit above average mouthfeel. My bottle, brought back from top of the year LA trip.

On tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands, CA.

Pours a slightly murky dark brown with a tan head that fades to a wispy film on top of the beer. Random streaks of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and some coffee. Taste is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, and slight coffee flavors. There is a nice mild roasty bitterness with each sip. This beer has a crisp carbonation level with a bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good porter with some nice aromas and flavors.

Thanks to millerbuffoon for pouring this one. The beer poured out as a nice looking chocolate brown color with a white head that comes and goes rather quickly. There isn't any retention or lacing to this beer. The smell of the beer gives off aromas of roasted malt and a heafty amount of cocoa. The taste of the beer is chocolatey, not a whole lot of anything else going on in this one. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth, it's drinkable, not overly sweet or gross from the chocolate. Overall I think it's a decent beer, would go well with a dessert.

Hangar 24 2010 Chocolate Porter. Served on nitro into a half pint glass at Hangar 24. Reviewed from notes taken in late 2012.

A: Pours a lovely bubble show lasting about 20 seconds. Head is one finger of beautiful beige cream, fantastic thickness, and fantastic retention. Body colour is a vibrant understated auburn.

Sm: Cream, mocha, amber malts, hints of chocolate. An average strength aroma.

T: Creamy chocolate, mocha, amber and dark malts, and an artificial cream finish. Simple but pleasant and enjoyable. The chocolate is restrained. Well balanced. The nitro doesn't mute the flavours.

Mf: Smooth, creamy, and wet. Suits the flavours quite well. Good carbonation and thickness.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable. I quite like it. Hides its ABV well. I wouldn't get it again, though. One of the better offerings I've had from this brewery. Nitro was a good choice.

Chestnut brown in the tall Stella glass, topped with a suitable head. Average carbonation.

Tastes like a Hershey milk chocolate bar. Milky, sweet, and simple. Not so much cocoa in the nose, but a whiff, along with caramel. Fairly sharp on the tongue. Dark malt flavors with a touch of burnt barley. Sugar seems to intensify. Almost tastes like the spiced-up Mexican chocolate. Not much beeriness to report on, except that it's a carbonated beverage with some bitterness towards the end. I think "cloying" is the word I'm looking for. Maybe it would be better hot.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's in Ocean Beach. Hangar does have nice labels.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with a half-inch of medium beige foam.

Smell: Malty notes of simple chocolate, toast, and also some roast, with a hint of beer-soaked raisins.

Taste: Moderate chocolate flavor, but seems more a product of the chocolate malts instead of a cocoa nib infusion. Straddles the line between tastes of toast and coffee-accented roast. Lightly sweet throughout. Lightly fruity. Low hop character, bitterness. Drying, fruity finish with a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: An acceptable brew, though, to be completely honest, I'm not getting too terribly much from the supposed usage of cocoa nibs and whole vanilla beans.

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.
