Dark ebony with slight head. Lacing left behind. Medium Carbonation. Malty sweetness of chocolate and molasses with hints of vanilla when inhaled. Sweet on the tongue with a bitter lingering. Smoky coffee aftertaste. Smooth on the palate, leaving an effervescent tingle. An easy drinking flavoured porter.

Reeeally starting to like chocolate porters now, I think this was the best one yet. Pours black, with a medium sized head, little lacing. Aroma a taste of chocolate, dark coffee, and sweet roasted malts.

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 Iím 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 donít 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. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

BeerGolem (727) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle bought in Vancouver, donít remember where. Pours black with tiny biege head. Aroma: hints of chocolate, milk, alcohol and malt. Subtle. Doesnít taste much. Little bit of carbonation. Mineral feeling. Way too thin. Disappointing, although it may have some potential.

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 itís not that bad considering the gusher and the acidic presence at first.
