Bottled 15JAN14 Pours brown with a broken sheet of tan foam. Smells roasty and meaty with plenty of toasted malts. Flavor is milky, chocolate, some rye, some sweet dough and a little coffee. Medium to light body with a dry finish. Good beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. They declare on the label that this is not brew with coffee or chocolate but your senses will say otherwise. Ain’t that the truth? The pour is dark brown with a modest tan head that becomes a ring and laces. But the nose is alive with coffee and milk chocolate malts and a hint of butter or butterscotch. The body is light to medium. The taste is more sweet than anything else at first but the bitterness tends to evolve with each passing sip.

jgb9348 (5724) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a muddied glow of amber and a three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich pit fruit sugars coupled with a strong malty character. Medium-bodied; Earthy showing of malt up front with a lot of caramel, toffee and pit fruit sweetness right behind and a touch of chocolate noticeable as well. Aftertaste shows the malt throughout with a good full-bodied flavour and a smooth sweetness at the end. Overall, a very nice dunkles and a good example of the style - strong and earthy with a deep richness and complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia for US$2.99 sampled after a hockey game in November 2013 - Thanks Kev!

Pours deep deep read with a light brown head that fades to a thick 1/4" ring around the rim of the glass. Roasty chocolatey, rich bready malts, toffee, caramels, dark fruits. Flavor is roast, dark chocolates, dark fruits, raisins, cherries, floral hops, sweet malts. Pretty tasty.

Arthree (48) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
12oz bottle from trader joes, room temperature. Pours black. Jet black. Blacker than Toby’s you-know-what. Some beige head that disappears quickly and completely. Smells like chocolate and cola and figs and... acetone? The bottle says coffee too but I don’t detect any. First sip: figs, cola, roast. No coffee or chocolate. Bubbles dance on the tongue for a few seconds and then the mocha kicks in and lingers. A bit sticky on the lips afterwards. Very drinkable.

luttonm (4728) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2014
12oz bottle in Seattle. Quite dark, clean still pour. Soft sweet, chocolate-smoke malt aroma. Porter like malts but a nice fresh, full dark lager body. Not the bock that I think of but this is a really tasty beer. Lots of depth, sweet fruit but smoky dark malt too. Nice.

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle - deep dark brown pour, sticky mocha colored head with a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some nice date and molasses notes. Full-bodied flavor with nice chocolate notes, hints of dates and molasses, some sweet caramel notes in the finish. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Most definitely worth the $1.17 I paid for it - may need to go back and actually buy a six of this!

Special blend of stuff to bring forth chocolate and coffee notes. Finishes well. Dark chocolate in color. Not too sweet.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pours dark mahogany. Aroma of dark fruit, a little chocolate. Taste is wintery but without spice, slight coffee notes, dark dry fruits, fig. The palate is medium but towards the full side, a little creamy. Overall a nice winter brew. Smooth and enjoyable. Worth checking out.

Flavorful lager with notes of coffee and chocolate. Your mouth won’t insist there’s any actual coffee or chocolate in it, as the label claims it will (You can tell there isn’t), but there are definitely what we’d refer to in beer terms as chocolate and coffee notes that would be hard to miss. I prefer when brewer’s create tastes with basic beer ingredients instead of adding adjuncts anyhow (Yes, coffee and chocolate count as adjuncts). Good beer that achieves seasonal taste with malts and brewing technique versus tossing sugar, spices, coco, etc. into the brewing vat.
