Pours deep, opaque dark brown, almost black with just a faint hint of garnet, with medium mocha head that leaves some skim. Great nose of milk chocolate, molasses, bread, coffee, light pine. Palate again leads with milk chocolate but adds darker cacao tone, plus a hint of orange. A bit of creaminess complements medium body. Clean, semi-dry finish with a bit of fizz balances the sweetness. Another good porter from River Horse.

odinstyr (667) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Pours a medium brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of chocolate, toasted white bread, cocoa. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter - strong chocolate flavor, a bit of malt - very dessert like.

skmikeg (1545) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Almost black with brown edges and a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, molasses, roasted malts, sweet malts, and light pine. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty Chocolate porter.

60minuteman (1145) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015
Heady brown pour. Aroma of coffee, malt, hops, citrus, oak. Flavor notes of coffee, pale malt, lemon and tree bark. It has the dark nature of a good porter but the taste is a little slimy and flavors don’t blend well.

EithCubes (5373) - New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle, mine 6.5% abv. Nose is light roast, some malt backbone, and deep, rich, luxurious chocolate mixing with light cocoa powder. Pours deep ruby which settles for mere deep brown in the glass, supports a dense and rocky tan head. Sweet, extremely rich taste (like good cake, icing included), red berry mixing with faint raisin, very strong milk chocolate, deeper truffle-like chocolate, some mild orange peel. Some actual, palpable, discernible malt character here, has depth and character. Medium body, malty feel, clean with no alcohol showing, delicious dessert all by itself.
