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

Bottle thanks to fata2683: Poured a black with tan head. Aroma is a gritty chocolate. Taste thin with grain and chocolate. Leave a dry dirty finish.

yackery (156) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2012
22-oz Bottle. Not much head but starts dirty-sandy foamy mostly dissolving in a minute with lacing that covers for a second but rusn too thin to be impressive over a coffee-colored, translucent body. Aroma is mainly roasted coffee but has notes of sweet chocolate and toffee and sugary malt. Taste is mildly sweet. Finish is mildly bitter. Effect is chocolate. Palate is a bit thin and light-bodied but refreshing with so many heavy beers out. Overall, very well-balanced and worthy of session and casual sharing - what a porter should be.

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 (3843) - 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.

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.
