COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The quintessential General Lafayette Inn brew, we carry on the tradition at the Crow of producing this rich, flavorful dark ale. Call it a Porter, call it a Stout, we call it delicious. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted flavors blend with an uncanny drinkability in this local legend.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 Poured an opaque black color with crimson hints around the edges, with a tan head and spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoke, chocolate and roast. Taste was lightly sweet, with chocolate and fudge, roast, and finished dry and smokey. The mouthfeel was thinner than I had expected, after having the Double Porter earlier this year.

On tap at the General Lafayette - listed as ’Chocolate Thunder Porter’ on their beer menu. Poured a dark balck with a brown head. Chocolate aromas. Light coffee bitterness in the taste. Smooth body.

This was a tasty beer. Very dark, even for a porter, with a nice brown head. Aroma is subtle of chocolate and sweetness, if thats possible. Flavor is robust with chocolate and hints of toffee. Medium bodied with nice smooth, soft mouthfeel. Alcohol is hidden well. One of the better beers at this microbrewery and perfect for dessert.

Very well made "robust" porter, smooth finish, alcohol content hidden well. Perfect beer for a cold winter night.

A very nice heavy porter, sharp dark malt initially, but finished smooth, packs a wallup!!

Wow - intense, rich, and chocolatey. Its like drinking a chocolate truffle. Slightly roasty malt flavors balance out the sweetness. Hearty body, and very dark black color that shows a hint of brownish red when tipped and help to the light.
