Bought 4 bottles of this at the GGBF 2014. I found the 1st bottle disappointing, but thereafter i’ve found it to be pretty good. It’s not a stunner, but is a pleasantly chocolatey beer.

Bottle from Wally’s in Westwood - had an "enjoy by" date of October ’14 (3 months ago) - what’s up with that, Wally? Very dark brown, not quite black, with a tan head and nice lace. Aromas of malt, milk chocolate and cocoa powder. Tastes like what it says it is, just tons of sweet milk chocolate and cocoa, maybe a hint of coffee. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and chocolate, chocolate and chocolate in the finish.

On Nitro at the yard house... Pours an opaque black with a huge dense frothy creamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate, coffee, cocoa and a touch of roast on the finish that gives it a semi dry finish and makes this beer delicious and easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a one centimetre tan head. Aroma of ridiculous amounts of chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, figs and somehow, even more chocolate - smells just like a milk chocolate bar. Medium-bodied; Strong chocolate flavour with hints of coffee, earth, raisins and roasted malt, but the milk and chocolate flavours dominate, in a very good way. Aftertaste shows a good balance of bitter malt and earth and the pleasant sweetness from chocolate - great and well done. Overall, a great beer for the style with more chocolate flavour than I’ve experienced in a non (Chapeau Chocolate) gimmicky beer - a great example of a sweet porter, for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington at the start of a cold weather spree here at home on 23-January-2015.

Black with tan head. Cream color, great lacing, and decent head retention. Chocolate, mild roast, licorice...sweet malt dominant aroma. Medium bodied, sweet chocolate malt mild salt note, roast bitter, and mild cherry flavor notes. Decent balance, roast bitter, nice dry notes throughout and lite-medium bitter finish.
