3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 650 bomber. Thin Mocha colored Head recedes quickly. Too thin for my liking, (think bath bubbles). chocolate alcohol nose. Thin mouthfeel. Needs more carbonation. Body is appropriately a dark chocolate brown. Taste is okay. Hints of molasses. May appeal to some due the chocolate, but I find it comes off flat. Overall I'm disappointed, this was much better a few years ago.

On draft at the brewery. Brown pour, with a tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, and fairly sweet. Not my thing, but I’m sure some people would like it.

Dark and sweet with minimal carbonation. Really good use if the chocolate malt with almost hoppy bitterness. Thick head and light chocolate aroma with a very subtle lingering mocha aftertaste

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, coffee, light vanilla and light caramel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla and light roastiness with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

Big chocolatey taste but unfortunately I don’t enjoy porters. Phillips is amazing though!

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a solid black with a cream coloured head. Aroma is of chocolate with a touch of roasted malt. Taste is of cocoa with a slight bitterness. If you like chocolate you should try this beer.

Bottle bought in Vancouver, don’t remember where. Pours black with tiny biege head. Aroma: hints of chocolate, milk, alcohol and malt. Subtle. Doesn’t taste much. Little bit of carbonation. Mineral feeling. Way too thin. Disappointing, although it may have some potential.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (650 ml). Shared by BeerGolem, thanks! Gusher. Dark brown with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and acidic notes. Taste is very similar, not super expressive. Medium body. A tad watery. Chocolate finish. Short aftertaste. A bit thin and quite boring, but it’s not that bad considering the gusher and the acidic presence at first.

From a 650 ml bottle. Pour is black with a quickly disappearing brown head. Aroma is mainly milk chocolate. Flavor is lactic sourness and lots of milk chocolate. Low bitterness. Hints of roasted malts. Overall a bit too much chocolate for my taste.

Deep brown appearance. Aroma is chocolate. The flavor is Bosco, plain and simple. So is the finish. No roastiness, weird. Too much.
