5/04/2011: Boulder Black Diamond Chocolate Porter... Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee candy. Appearance: Medium Coffee brown color, looks opaque in the glass, thin beige crown. Flavor: Thin, watery, and sweet, lots of vanilla and tootsie roll like chocolate, light roastiness (mostly in the finish) and cocoa nibs with some herbal hops. Palate: Medium body, really soft and falls off quickly. Overall: Weak, watery, and disappointing.

Draught (5.5% ABV) at Dutch’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #18 for this beer.

On draft. Pours a deep black, creamy white head. Taste is sweet chocolate, a bit much on the sweet side, but overall not too bad.

illiniphil (122) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Had on draft at Old Chicago. Pours a dark brown with a decent and lingering white head. Chocolate, sweetness and burnt malts predominate. Nicely balanced and not cocoa overpowering. Liked it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (1576) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Draft at Old Chicago, Southgate. Pours a dark brown color with a 1 cm head that lingers a good while. This smells almost exactly like chocolate milk. Taste is very much like chocolate milk too with just a touch of light roasted malt. Medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Really good beer for fans of chocolate milk.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Draft at Ol Chi Rockford. Pours black with a good bit of dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate milk with a hint of coffee. Pretty sweet stuff, but not so sweet that I couldn’t drink it all night...because I totally could.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Kinda flat, but otherwise this is a great cocoa porter...they have managed to avoid the common problem of cloying sweetness and have a well balanced flavor between the burnt malts and the chocolate...very enjoyable

My word, had a glass at old Chicago, tastes like someone poured a Sunday’s work path of Hersey’s in the glass and stirred. I feel like I shouldn’t like, but such a guilty pleasure. The malt and the a bit of sharpness, with the hint of alcohol warmth make this a very drinkable beer. I need to share this with a non-craft beer drinking friend,
