Like drinking a chocolaty nutty beer cake. Very rich, very smooth, just as it says.

From bottle, pours a black colour with a hint of cola at the bottom of the glass when held to the light, it has a good tan head that disapates to a thin layer. Aroma chocolate, nuts, coffee, cocoa. Taste pretty much follows the nose.

Heretic Chocolate Hazelnut Porter

Look: Looks stouty. Pretty much jet black and opaque, with a dense, foamy head that coats the side of the glass when tilted, and the head settles into a long-lasting thin layer of tiny bubbles. One of the best-looking porters I've seen. 4.25

Smell: It delivers chocolate and nuttiness. To me, hazelnut beers and peanut-butter beers smells very similar and are difficult to distinguish. This one has a strong note of that general sweet nuttiness. Not a whole lot of malt or hops present on the nose. 4.0

Taste: Similar to the smell, but less bold. Sweet with a hint of chocolate and some general nuttiness. 3.75

Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue, mild carbonation, decent body for a porter. 3.75

Overall: An enjoyable dessert beer. 3.75

On-tap 6/24/2016 at Natty Greeneā€™s Tavern in North Attleboro, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains chocolate, coffee, hazelnuts, roasted malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of chocolate, hazelnuts and coffee. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is clean for the style.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.
