Bottle. It pours brown with a light brown head. The aroma is very chocolaty with cocoa powder and vanilla. The flavor is the same. Nice rich cocoa notes without being too thin or sugary, but not syrupy either. Pretty simple stuff, but crowd pleasing I guess.

12 ounce bottle. 6.5% ABV. Barely translucent dark brown color topped by a large rocky beige head. Rich chocolate malt nose. Like a chocolate cake glazed donut. Flavor follows nose. Sweet roasted malt and milk chocolate flavor. Medium bodied but on the thin side. Notes of mocha and cocoa powder.

River horse produced a respectable chocolate porter that has a nice nose, black color with a not so long lasting head, and a smooth coating on the tongue. However, it’s not as rewarding as Yards’ Chocolate Love Stout or Troegs’ Scratch Batch Chocolate Stout. I do realize that a porter is different than a stout, but based solely on flavor, I would sniff out another brew. Cheers!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
