Very Good
Notes: “Folktour” Hot Cocoa Porter is decadent ale that blends dark malts and sweet chocolate into a hot cup of comforting nostalgia to warm your bones through the cold winter months.

Picked-up a single can as part of a mixed six-pack at Kappy's in Norwell for about eleven dollars. Have had a few brews from these guys before. This was pretty good, flavor was a bit muted.

Dark brown where no light passes through the edge of the glass. Modest head with very little spots for lace.

More than any other Porter, this beer has a strong milk chocolate aroma with a light cocoa touch.

The matches the smell. As the the bartender said, "this is like Swiss Miss with Marshmallows." The body is rich with a light carbonation level. The finish is cocoa and it lasts a decent amount of time.

16 oz can into modern pub. Dated 11/1/18.
Look is black. Smell is roasted malt. Taste follows with sweet chocolate finish. Feel is medium. Overall nice porter but not as much chocolate as I had hoped for

Great porter, literally like a cold hot chocolate with alcohol. Personally porters and stouts have a funky taste mixed in but this one not too much.
