COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a rich, robust porter, cleverly crafted to integrate the aromas and flavors of espresso coffee malt and bitter-sweet chocolate malt. Inspired by owner Brendan Moylans’ daughter Chelsea, this is an American-Irish Style Porter that dark beer drinkers will love

Dark with a tan head. Tons of chocolate and coffee flavor along with a thick palate. A good porter which compares favorably with their Imperial Stout.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
On tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Looked pretty good upon pour. Very dark brown in color. Nutty flavor, but very thin bodied. Just left a little too much to be desired. I actually bumped up the rating 0.1 because I have a daughter named Chelsea.

Butters (3792) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Black pour with massive very dense sustainable light tan head. A little tart lactic acid nose. Roast and hints of coffee with more lactose it seems like. Reminds me of a homebrew quality I come across sometimes. Bitter dry finish. Maybe I’m just not digging this style. I do love dark beers, but this one isn’t for me.

joeneugs (3333) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 19, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It pours dark brown with a dense lasting tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolaty mocha and coconut. The flavor is very roasted with hints of cocoa, raisins and coffee/charcoal in the finish. A little light on the palate.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle from Bevmo: Created a thick formation of fluffy yet fizzy foam head. Has a rich chocolate and dark roast malt aroma that assured me that this would be a flavorful beer. The flavor is sweet and bitter and reminds me of cocoa powder or powered chocolate milk, but there are also notes of roast coffee bean in here as well. This is a tasty porter and it’s a relief to see that Moylan’s finally released a new beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Nearly black, moderate beige head, foamy, nice lacing.   Straight up roasted malt nose, slight lactose.   Smidgen of campfire.   A little charred wood and smokiness on the tongue, otherwise roasty.   Body isnt that big, seems a little thin even.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but almost on the thin side.   Lactose and roasted malts linger.   Wished this one was a little sweeter.   Lacks depth.   Needs more maltiness and sweetness to be anything real good.

alexsdad06 (5608) - Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2011
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99(?). Pours an auburn brown with a smaller off white head. The aroma was straight forward roasted malts with some dark fruits. The flavor was nice, but overly complex. Roasted malts with hints of coffee and mild bitterness. This was not overly robust, but fairly drinkable.

Davros (1994) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2011
Pours dark brown with a large fading head. Nose shows roasted malt, dark chocolate and big nutty notes. Also a faint savoury character. Pretty restrained. Flavours are more on the hoppy side, with prominent piny notes accompanying bold roasted malt and coffee. Pretty flavoursome. Could use a bit more carbonation.
