650ml bottle. Super rich and chocolatey porter, not suffering form too low of a body either.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Un ballon presque noir bu au Brass Tap de Pembroke Pines. Une mousse peu généreuse. Des arômes riches de cacao, de vanille grillée et de notes joliment rôties. Une bouche complètement débile de lait au chocolat, de café aromatisé et de vanille fraîche. Un corps souple avec une texture crémeuse à souhait et un pétillement modéré. Une finale profondément chocolatée avec de belles notes rôties qui empêchent l’éclosion de notes trop douces. Une autre folle bière de Funky.

Bottle shared with Timfoolery. Smelled of cocoa. Had the texture of Guiness on the mouth, but more chocolate and full flavored. Decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Dunt’s Tasting (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich deeper blackish brown hue, well hazed with nice darker colors, good glow and frothy tannish head. Aromas are rich cocoa, roast and caramel. Big nib, touches of coffee. Initial is firm to strong nib presence, firm roast, toast, touches of coffee, faint creamy vanilla. Middle is a bit toasty, dry, sweet espresso coffee elements, a firmer body. Backend is dry, cocoa nib, touches of sweet caramel and cream. Finish is dry, roasty and toasty, big nib. Solid. A bit one dimensional.

Liter growler from beer_nerd305, thanks Adrian. Poured a medium density Tootsie Roll chocolate brown with an average sized foamy light brown head. Aroma and flavor of very light chocolate milk, cocoa powder, grains, brown toast. Nice medium body with average carbonation and a solid finish that is refreshing even though this is chocolate beer. Good beer but I was expecting a little more chocolate throughout.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong cocoa nib and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel with rich chocolate and light vanilla with sweet finish. Very impressive.

Although labeled as a porter by the brewer, I think rate beer has it right by classifying this under a sweet stout. This is really a decadent beer without being too cloying. The cocoa, vanilla, and almost milky creaminess combine together harmoniously while touch of bitterness comes around naturally, balancing the beer out. Overall this beer is rich but not too much so to have another.

32 ounce growler pours a very dark black with hints of reddish color. A tan head lasts about a minute. Big chocolate and vanilla aromas extremely full-bodied with residual sweetness chocolate and vanilla flavors with a nice amount of hop bitterness. Leaves a nice oil he feeling on your lips. Another very nicely done beer By Funky Buddha.
