Definite chocolate notes from this one. Hops were balanced well with the sweetness of the malts. Slight tang of bitterness
but not distracting. A very well made beer which I would get again.

In the glass it pours a brown in color. The head is a creamy beige color, nice lace. The aroma has chocolate, slight coffee malt, hops, and slight hints of caramel as it warms. The taste you get hints of the caramel, coffee, chocolate is dominate, hints of hops and dark malt. Semi sweet and smooth. Very drinkable, the flavors mix well together.

This is a very nice beer. A strong taste of bittersweet chocolate at the beginning. Not too sweet. Very balanced.

Little heavy for a session beer. I switched up after a couple of pints.

Definitely a beer I will have again when the occaison presents itself.

Pours a nice brown color, with a decent off-white head. On the nose I picked up good aromas of chocolate. The body is light-medium. On the palate the flavors consisted of a nice hop malt balance, hint of caramel in there, slight coffee flavor, a bit toasty, dark chocolate, grains, nice sweetness to it. Mouth feel is smooth. I'm going to have to find this in bottle. Overall a good chocolate porter.
