22oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a brown coffee color with a thick, foamy, light tan head that quickly faded into a thick film leaving wispy lace down the glass.
S: Rootbeer, cola, and vanilla nose. Sweet and soda-like with a touch of vanilla.
T: Vanilla, roast, caramel malt, brown sugar and soda flavors. I'm getting a lot of flavors of weak black coffee and bitter used coffee grounds as well. Chocolate isn't as strong as expected but adds a nice light flavor in the finish. Very bitter aftertaste.
M: Very foamy frothy carbonation, medium- full body, bitter and foamy but drinkable mouthfeel.
O: Not really a fan. Not especially bad just the flavors didn't really work for me. Needs work in my opinion. Too much carbonation as well.

Appearance - Pours a deep, dark near black auburn brown with a light, brownish off-white 2 finger head. Great retention, leaving a strong layer of microbubbles floating on the surface. Moderate lacing on the glass.

Smell - Not strongly aromatic; touches on chocolatey roasted malt and a buttery character.

Taste - Not what was expected. More off-flavored butter flavor than chocolate. Chocolate is present, but moderate at best. Acidic bite. Moderate roast near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with low to moderate carbonation. Acidic. Fair smoothness.

Overall - When drinking this, the first thing that comes to mind is neither chocolate, nor porter; not good when the name of your brew is 'Chocolate Porter'. I'm one and done with this beer. There are dozens upon dozens of chocolate forward brews I'd much rather have.

A: Crazy drak brown, not quite black. Thin whispy white head. Slight lacing.

S: Smells pretty lagery; malts. Coppery. Doughy. Applesauce.

T: Smokey portery goodness. Malty goodness. Slight floral hops. Slight metallic, but in a good way.

M: Thick and chewy. Full bodied. Nice coat on the tongue.

O: I didn't get much of the chocolate, but I did get the porter.

thanks rtaps!!!!
