COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zombie Monkie is a dark, rich porter, carefully brewed for the post-apocalyptic world to come. Crafted with lots of roasty dark chocolate and specialty malts, then inoculated with enough hops to add a floral/citrus character in the finish. It’s hardy, complex, and interesting, because you might be drinking it for a long time.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste dark chocolate, roasted malt, hint of coffee. I thought this was ok. I wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can thanks to Bob. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with a finger of creamy khaki head. Aroma of roasted malt, old coffee, metal, caramel, and vanilla extract. Taste of burnt malts and earth up front, followed by bitter coffee beans and cardboard, and finishes with caramel and hints of vanilla.

It is a nice porter. Nothing really special about it to make it any better than another. Nice color, nice aroma...smooth drinking and not bitter.

16 ounce can into pint glass, best before 12/11/2015. Pours nearly opaque dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, dark bread, lemon/orange citrus, floral, light smoke/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/floral hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, dark bread, lemon/orange citrus, floral, light smoke/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate floral/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, light smoke/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/floral hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice robust porter style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate citrus/floral hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Black pour under a tall, frothy tan head. Nutty, roast malt aroma. The flavor has a nice balance of roast malt bitterness and sweetness then the sweetness fades leaving a dry roast malt finish.

GTAEgeek (1866) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2015
16 oz. can. Opaque black, with a very slight, ruby touch. Medium, tan head. The aroma is bittersweet chocolate, cinnamon, espresso, and toffee. Sweet and very malty, with no hint of sour or bitter flavors. Heavy body, chalky, velvety, and smooth. This is a nice, chocolate malt of a porter.

suprchunk (2936) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Dark brown, bordering on black, pour. Small tan head. No lacing. Malty roasty aroma. Taste is the same with some chocolate notes.

nuplastikk (5687) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Tap at Sidedoor. Deep brown-black body. Big fluffy beige head. Heavy on the specialty malts. Thick and heavy for the style. Bittersweet chocolate, caramel. Has a nice aroma, defined flavor, but the overall mouthfeel doesn’t really work for me...too dry, astringent, mineral. OK.

Can. A really good beer from a can. Dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is very strong dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate. Creamy, slightly sweet up front with a bitter chocolate finish.

Draft sample. The beer is a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate. Medium sweetness and roast, subtlety bitterness. Good stuff, but a little lackluster for the high ratings.
