22oz bomber with no date. found a dusty bottle on sale for only $2.99. here's hoping it's not skunked out or infected.

i got lucky: not infected, not skunky. beautiful black look with great tan head and retention. smell is lactose sugar and not much more. taste is milky and sweet, with roasted coffee grounds and chocolate. lighter than a stout, but still flavorful.

Moylan's / Chelsea Moylan's Porter

I've enjoyed quite a few of the Moylan's beers...including THIS one. A very nice porter, in fact it is an exceptional porter. I was only able to enjoy HALF of the 22oz bottle because the other half was going into my authentic Texas Chili - which was a hit. The labeled promise of coffee and chocolate was not hyperbole. The coffee accent was not only forefront throughout including the aftertaste - but it even looked like a rich foam topped espresso.

HEAD/MOUTHFEEL: A two-three finger tan head predicted the creaminess - a very stout-ish porter!

POUR: an opaque dark brown with a distinct coffee aroma.

FLAVOR: Deep coffee and a sweet chocolate edge.

I definitely like porters that blur the stout style fence-line.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste begins with an earthy, smokey flavor, followed by some sweetness, and finishing with an herbal, chocolaty finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Overall a good porter, the smoke is nice, but there are better examples out there.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and cookie dough. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and very easy to drink.

Serving type is 22oz bottle put into what the box of beer glasses said was the right glass

Dark almost black pour with about a half finger head that is dark brown and dies off super fast and has very little lacing

The smell is outstanding , probally one of the best smelling beers Ive come across, very good roasted barley smell with chocolate and coffee overtones

The taste is ok , Im not a huge porter fan , but as far as porters go this one is on par for the course

Over all not a bad beer , if I was in the mood for a porter again I would purchase this for the price

Poured a deep dark brown with some amber highlights when held to some light,a half finger beige head atop.Deep espresso roast and sharp bitter chocolate in the nose,very earthy and old school.Dry and heavily roasted on the palate,underlying unsweetened chocolate with very mild molasses-like sweetness,again the roast and dryness is the main component of the beer.I think this beer rocks,it's old school and that's cool,I would love to have this on a nitro pour.
