I kno I have had this many a time, guess I never rated. Pours dark Amber, tan head. Nose of buttered chocolate. Taste is pure chocolate creamsicle. Silly velvet body. Luv a nice porter.

Color: The middle of the blood donation bag Odor: Hanging out by the coffee machines at quick trip after someone poured a ’nice’ coffee. Taste: Infact: The taste has a little gasoline too. Pretty standard stouty stuff.

From the winter sampler pack. Nice big roasty malt. Bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavors. Big flavors for a porter. Solid drink from these guys once again.

martjoobolut (876) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2014
0,35L bottle. Pours deep ruby-black with light tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is roast, fruits, spicy notes, hint of chocolate, notes of vegetables. Flavor is sweet, fruits, caramel, roast, some citrus. Finish is sweet and roast. Overall: ok brew.

An ok porter. There is a nice smokiness to it. I would have liked to see more power in it. For a subtle porter it's nice. I'll have it more like a brown ale.

Another quality brew from Chico. Nice roasted malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate notes. Body is a little on the weak side. Nice gentle coffee bitterness on finish.

Avgerage porter. Good but a little dull. Thin mouthfeel and a semi-watered down flavor profile for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fine porter. Red brown colour with creamy head. Strong typical porter flavours but with sharp clean after taste that many lack. Not overly strong at 5.6 but still a solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasant aroma of roasted malted barley that is fairly strong. Pours a rich dark red-brown in the glass with a tan head that fades to a lasting film. Some lacing. Feels very smooth in the mouth with soft carbonation. The flavour is fantastic, mostly malts and hops with a light bittersweet finish. Overall, this is a great dark ale.

Dark pour with tan head. Aroma is roasty and slightly smokey. Medium mouth feel with creaminess at the top. Flavors are roasted malts, chocolate and a slightly acidic finish. Very solid
