I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making this single 12oz bottle $1.67. No freshness date. This is one of the new gringolandia line of beers being produced now by 5 Rabbit.

The beer poured a dark brown color and made a 1-finger mocha head that didn't last very long. There was very little lacing.

It smells very chocolatey.

Nice roasted malt flavor with lots of cocoa and bittersweet chocolate adding more flavor. Wheat is also noticeable. Low bitterness and very little hop presence.

The addition of flaked oats gives this a creamy smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied with only moderate carbonation.

This is a decent porter. Being a Latino owned brewery, they always try to put something with a Latin flair into their beers. For this one they used Chilean caramel malt.

Damn,,,,,the appearance and the scent were so promising. The taste is watery coffee which led to poor mouthfeel and overall score. The scent carried roast with some chocolate. The beer poured a opaque dark with thick head that is leaving a ring lacing. Sorry the taste and mouthfeel kill this promising beer.

This is barely a porter. If you like porters, get something else. If you like hoppy beers but are maybe in the mood for something different, maybe this is for you.

This beer is smooth, drinkable, and has an undercurrent of chocolate. I'm getting a slight smokey thing in there too. It's good, and certainly an American Porter. However, I'm not sure this could be called a Robust Porter. It's on the low side for ABV of the style, doesn't have much chocolate, and a hop presence is hard to pick out.

However, nutty and toffee flavors come through and makes me think this is closer to the flavor profile of the Samuel Smiths Taddy Porter I had last night than the Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald or Tyranena Chief Black Hawk I'm pairing with it right now. The latter two are both much more chocolatey with a hint of roast and a hop presence and bitterness that just doesn't come through in the 5 Rabbit.

It's an enjoyable, drinkable beer, but I don't think this one should be classified with the likes of some of the more "robust" examples of Porter (i.e. Deschutes Black Butte, Anchor, Great Lakes, Smuttynose, etc).

Served in a tumbler.

Following the success of the Super Pils, I'm kinda actually looking forward to this one. It pours a clear midnight sienna topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises mildly-roasted malts, milk chocolate powder. a hint of treacle, and a bit of pumpernickel. The taste brings in more of the same, providing a nice, semi-mild example of a porter. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a near-creamy feel. Overall, a nice porter, one that deftly balances roast and sweetness in a rather drinkable package.
