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.

Deep dark brown with maybe a finger of beige head that dissipates quickly. Big bitter aromas of cocoa and coffee, a little vanilla and milky lactose sweetness as well. The taste is huge cocoa, dark unsweetened baker’s chocolate, coffee. I dig this, I don’t find it boozy at all, it definitely gets better as it warms. I like what they’ve been doing over in Long Trail, they’ve definitely been stepping it up lately.

Pours dark brown, no head. chocolate and licorice on the nose. Taste is sweet and loaded with roasted malts. Prety boozy actually but chocolate all of the way. wish there was a little vanilla in this.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some dough, and light notes of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a nice roasted malt and chocolate character, but the yeast or fruit note imparts something weird about this beer. Average to smooth texture. A pretty good beer, but just something a little off.

Pours a four finger khaki head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Chocolate nose and flavor is almost sweet chocolate, higher ABV is hidden. Light bitter chocolate finish. 22oz bottle $6.99 from Market Basket Concord, NH.

pete4999 (1129) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle, as pictured. Pours a nice deep dark brown/black. Taste is heavy on the chocolate with almost a little bit of smoke. Nice and deep flavor throughout...not light up front or on the finish. Another nice beer from Long Trail.

Drake (8991) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
With this beer’s name, I thought it would be appropriate to try this beer after entering a 200+ beer backlog. Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin frothy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, earth and a bit of green coffee notes. The taste is roasted malts, dark coffee, dark chocolate, mild earth, mild bitter hops, very faint vanilla and a bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. Good beer.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Dark chocolate aromas. Dry with sweet and dark chocolate upfront turning to espresso in the medium length finish.
