COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

Nitro at Oblivion Taproom. Aromas of roast coffee and sweet chocolate. Taste is smooth roasted malt with a bitter hop presence that plays nice with the dark chocolate sweetness. Creamy and smooth finish. Really good.

S_Side_Smitty (392) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On nitro at Brass Tap. Pours black with a medium creamy light tan head. Aroma is molasses like with some grains in the background. Taste is heavy roasted malts balanced well with some hoppy bitterness. Sweetness comes out in the mid and blends well with the other flavors. Finish is mildly bitter. Smooth overall.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Black pour with a persistent light tan head. Nose has a bit of roast and cocoa in it, with some very light coffee notes. Flavor is sweet and a little roasty with some dark bakers cocoa and a mild earthy sweetness, a touch of light citric coffee, and a semi-dry cocoa-ish finish. Pretty swell.

Fritz123 (808) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft in a snifter. Pours a jet black with a thin white head. Great little lacing around the rim. Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is the same with a little dark coffee and cocoa. Finishes dry and clean. No aftertaste. Another fine beer from CCB.

Advocate_Ames (390) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Nitro on tap at Tampa International. Pours a dark brown with a guinness like head, very thick and creamy. The aroma is very full of dark roasted sweet malts, wood scents, toffee, and a weak but pleasant hop aroma. In tasting I caught carmel, butter, slight bittering chocolate, and a pleasant roasty malt flavor. The finish is a weak bitter, rich in cooked malts, and with a touch of dryness. Overall a fine porter, very enjoyable.

MadRobin (1698) - Silver Spring, USA - JAN 23, 2014
[The ABV for Puppy's Breath Porter is now 6% in both cans and on tap at the tasting room. Previously, "Puppy's Breath Robust Porter" came in at 8%. Perhaps "Puppy's Breath Porter" and "Puppy's Breath Robust Porter" should be listed as separate beers.] On nitro 4 oz. sampler at the Cigar City Brewing tasting room in Tampa, FL. Opaque, black-brown with a creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of coffee, charcoal, roasted malt, toffee and molasses. Taste of chocolate, coffee, molasses, RN, toffee and charcoal. Medium/full body and low carbonization with a soft nitro mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
