Rich and decadent. This strong porter is perfect for sipping at the end of the day or to accompany full-flavored foods. The intense, roasty flavor comes from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. Whole vanilla beans introduced post fermentation add complexity and enhance the dessert-like qualities of this full bodied beer. Indulge yourself! Additional Information: This beer began life as our Panamanian Porter with the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and banana. A truly unique beer, we felt that all those flavors needed some smoothing out so we changed yeast strains and eliminated the banana flavor (Which came from the yeast strain). The Panamanian Porter did have many fans however, and there may be plans in the future to bring it back for a special occasion. Stay tuned…

I feel Hangar 24 is highly underrated. In the case of their chocolate porter it makes the A-list. The appearance is a rich dark brown to near black color with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is baker’s chocolate, earth, vanilla, and roasted grain. On the taste I get bitter cocoa, lubricated by vanilla with a long and strong bitter robust finish.

One of my favorite all-time beers! Tasty to the max, full-flavored, easy to drink and enjoy porters. All the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and banana are easily recognizable. Just a really good beer to enjoy.

rafax (132) - POLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, very clear with small head and pretty nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate, rosted malts and coffee, could have been stronger... Medium body with pleasant oily mouth feel. In taste rosted malts and coffee with bitterness in finish. Some sweet, vanila in the background. Very drinkable for it’s 8%.

Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Bottle @ home. Opaque dark brown color with a dark red glare coming through when held into the light, medium to full sized beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, cocoa, chocolate and a hint of dark grapes and raisins. Taste malts, chocolate, cocoa, a slight hint of vanilla and raisins, a slight hint of grapepeel and a decent bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. A bit thinner texture - wise as to what I had expected. Nice though.

Bottle from Whole Foods, Santa Monica. Dark brown with a medium head. Aroma of light chocolate, malt and some "earth". Similar taste, also with some vanilla. Drinkable but nothing special.
