COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark chocolate Porter is a very rich, roasty beer with top notes of chocolate derived from freshly roasted cacao. Strong but relatively smooth on the palate, it’s malty sweetness is evenly balanced with bitterness, and a slight dryness from the alcoholic strength. Look for solid notes of coffee, licorice, mild chocolate and more subtle hints of fruit and spices.

Slightly toasty porter with good chocolate flavor. Not that complex but very flavorful and smooth. Deep and dark color with very thin cafe colored head.

Beerdedone (2730) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma was roasty with chocolate, coffee and some smokiness. Smooth creamy flavor of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee and had a hint of smoke. Medium bodied low carbonation dry finish.

Ron (2681) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a beige head and little lace. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light notes of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a nice roasted malt and a good chocolate character in this beer. A smooth texture. A good beer.

Draft at Long Trail Brewery. Pours dark brown to black with generous brown head that lasts. Amazing porter, lots of chocolate and malt, but not overwhelming. Hints of fruit. No alcohol burn for such a strong beer. A lot of flavors and aromas that blend awesomely.

Slubgob (193) - West Hartford, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bomber into pint glass. Opaque dark brown, thin quickly dissipating mahogany head. Earthy chocolate dominates the nose, with a hint of typical porter roast. In the mouth, dry, a bit of bitterness. More cocoa powder in the backend, and a bit of alcohol heat. Very well balanced, drinks easily. Nice done.

Draft at Pony Bar. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Medium roasted malts, chocolate, moderate sweetness, and a touch of booze. Not bad.

An awesome blend of chocolate & coffee in the aroma draw you in! The pour is opaque w/ a thin mocha head that leaves good lacing. The mouthfeel is smooth yet complex. The taste is chocolate w/ a roasty bitter undertone that really comes out in the finish! This is one damn good beer!

BroSpud (1740) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Sweet malt flavors of coffee along with some chocolate and alcohol notes. Somewhat thin palate. Not bad but leaves me wanting one of the better impy stouts available out there.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose is coffee, cocoa, caramel and hay. Rich and creamy with a tang and some char. Taste is espresso, milk chocolate, licorice and prune. Lingering bitter cocoa. Great work by Long Trail.

Black is the night devoid of stars. Black glides effortlessly down the throat, velvety-sweetness not to be overlooked. Cold and absinthe, warm and dark. This winter is brought to you by this collaboration and artistic form. Just the right balance of carbonation at low temps to dance... Taste the dark chocolate and cocoa nibs. A dark at the back of the tongue perfection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
