3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle.The pour was a dark muddy brown with a slight reddish hue and a large (2-3 finger) light brown fluffy head that receded slowly, down to a nice thick cap which basically lasted throughout and produced some really excellent full sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a dark roasted malt and a bold leathery yeast with notes of molasses, milk chocolate, dark roasted coffee and a hint of ash.
The taste was extremely roasty and a little bitter sweet with a large malt presence and notes of molasses and chocolate pretty much throughout, progressing into a slightly bitterer taste with a strong milky coffee ending. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with a roasty choc-coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a carbonation that barely exceeded medium in intensity.
Overall this brew started with a delicious aroma and fantastic look, but ultimately tasted pretty average for a chocolate porter. Although I will say it was still a decently chocolaty and rather creamy, which made it and enjoyable and easy drinking beer... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyers, Wilsonville. $4.29
Dark mahogany brown body with a very attractive light tan head..that is thick and creamy.
Good and rich dark chocolaty aromas..along with roasted hazelnut and cream.
Taste is much the same as the aroma but more dark french roast coffee aspects..the chocolate remains strong though.
The mouthfeel however lets the beer down starts great and luscious than quickly fades to an almost watery finish.
Good beer however.
