Pours thick murky brownish with a big creamy bright beige head. Aroma is brilliant sweet milky caramel chocolate so pleasant in the nose. Body is so creamy on nitro with sweet chocolate flavors settling well with a tad of bitterness on the palate.

Talk about a Wendy’s frosty of beer. The chocolate notes hit your nose right away, with a nice coffee chaser. Very degree color on it. Would make an excellent dessert beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Blue Monk. Pours a nice deep black with a small white head. Kind of looked like instant coffee does. Aroma of chocolate and coffee hit the nose. Taste was similar to a chocolate shake. Smooth and creamy. On the lighter side for a beer. Not a bad offering at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: very dark brown, with ruby edging when backlight; half a finger of extremely creamy foam the color of a Wendy’s frostee; minimal lacing. Aroma: blast of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, heavy whipping cream, and hershey’s syrup; there is a hint of graham cracker and nuts. Taste: dark, bittersweet chocolate up front, then a blast of milk chocolate sweetness (like a pudding cup), vanilla, light toasted nuts and a hint of roast coffee. Finish: lasting sweetness, almost lactic, with chocolate flavors sticking around quite awhile. Notes: Palate is silky smooth and rich, flavors are chocolate-dominated and very sweet. Liked it quite a bit. Would have liked just a hint more roasty bitterness to balance, but it’s hard to find much fault in this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Standard 12oz bottle, bad label. Coffee pour, fluffy oatmeal head. Aroma is more parched nuts than roast and chocolate. Lot of bittersweet chocolate right up front - lightly sweet, cocoa-bitter, a bit acidic. Medium body, sometimes almost feels a bit light. Bitter cocoa aftertaste. For all its alleged complexity, it comes off as rather one-note and simplistic. Better than random average, less than expected. ABC, Betton.

Poured from bottle in mix six pack, pours pretty much black with a thin tan head and spotty lacing, aroma is heavy chocolate and roast, smells pretty awesome, the flavor has a lot of chocolate on the front end with some burnt malt in the finish, maybe a little bit of coffee, dang, good stuff

This is the most chocolate that I’ve ever tasted in a beer. This porter lives up to its name and has a chocolate shake feel to it. Creamy in texture with chocolate throughout. Finishes sweet. Excellently put together and I really enjoyed this one.
