Notes of rich chocolate and coffee, a luscious creaminess and a roasted finish.Listed on the bottle, I would agree, looking for a bit more thickness, but would drink again for sure!

Black with light brown head. Red fruit, toasted malt and vanilla. Floral hops, chocolate and a bit cherry. A divine smooth and creamy palate. A rare 5 in that for me. A crisp after taste of dark chocolate.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicate, slightly smoky aroma, with chocolate and fruit notes. Taste is sweet & sour chocolate, with a bit of fruit and roasted nuts. Strangely enough, and in contrast with other reviewers, I get no coffee here. Reminds me most of something very specific - old-school chocolate sodas like my mom used to get at the local ice cream stand 30+ years ago, with the thin feel and light carbonation to match and the complimentary dollop of vanilla custard. Not as roasty, smoky, or coffee-infused as I expected, but delicious in its own right.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Porter Blind Tasting #4. Similar to a few others I get a bit of a fruity-tutti, banana character, which is amiss of porter but seems to be common as I go through this blind tasting. A mild roast character, a mild hop character. Tasted a lot like #1 but slightly better. A very safe porter.

Meh. Ok, a bit thin, more roasts than I'd expect.
