Fatehunter (2058) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Picked up a bottle from the tap house in Ashland. Great pour, a finger of tan head on a dark brown body. The aroma is all chocolate. It smells great though. The taste is chocolate throughout. There’s a mild bitterness and the chocolate avoids being too sweet. Great balance and complexity. Smooth texture, low carbonation and medium body. A really nice porter, especially if you like chocolate.

Banksiz (77) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Smoky, chocolatey nose, with some coffee & vanilla. Medium sweet with a well-balanced bitterness, slight saltiness. Subtle cherry-raisin notes. Flavors soften and blend as it warms up and breathes. Medium-full, oily-creamy mouth feel. Bitter, slightly astringent finish, but with no harshness. Many flavor notes, but well blended. Excellent sipping beer, and at 8.5% not over-alcohilic.

Douberd (4403) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2016
(Caldera Mogli) Bottle 650 ml at home, white wax, served into a snifter, ABV 8.5% Dark brown colour on the body, almost totally black. Head on top is thick, a little bit lower than one finger, dark beige in colour. Quite good retention. Plenty of milky chocolate on the aroma, vanilla, light bourbon. Taste follows, lots of vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, light bourbon which I’d like more pronounced, light oak every now and then. Medium to thick bod, carbonation on the right levels, smooth on the palare and very drinkable. Very good, doesn’t justify the premium price though.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and dark brown with a small, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma is a delight - milk chocolate and vanilla with undercurrents of hazelnuts, cola nuts and sassafras root. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is very roasty and bitter, but also features a fantastic marriage of simmered chocolate milk and dark, luxuriant chocolate crème. Trends a little too bitter and carbonic for my taste, but damn this lives up to the billing!

mariuspoenari (1100) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle shared with friends at a weekend tasting. Thick dark brown pour. Aroma dominated by milk chocolate, with notes of vanilla, oak, bourbon. The taste follows the same notes, very heavy on the chocolate. Excellent beer.
