starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Clear dark body, tan head, dry chocolatey aroma, terrible flavour. All charred malt, with a little funk & some sour milk. Acidic, nasty, biley. Ugh.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 27, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark sepia brown with an off white head. has great lacing. There’s not much of a chocolate aroma, but the chocolate flavor is very rich and nice. I like it.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pors dark with a one finger thick tan head. Aroma is sour, roast, and slight chocolate. The flavor is slight chocolate, funk, and roast. I thought i would have enjoyed this brew, it looked great, and i love porters, but this was not that pleasant.

radagast83 (5069) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Aroma initially started out fantastic, but soon got a slight sour/metalic aroma as it warmed. The same can be said about the taste, it was initally fantastic when it was really cold, but I let it warm too long (though it was only about half an hour) and it ended up being a chore to finish.

dumacub (18) - dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2007
an overall underwhelming affair. I too sucumb to the promise of cocoa goodness only to be once again dissapointed. It has a dark brown almost black appearance with a sweet aroma. fair mouthfeel if you can manage to get around the overpowering sour/metallic tastes that just sits in your mouth. not sure what to do with the other five.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 26th, 2007: The beer is a dark chestnut color with a medium thin and rather fizzy light brown head that dissipates right away. Thin and spotty lacing. Cocoa aroma similar to opening a can of the powdered mix. Not much else to the aroma. Medium-bodied and lightly roasty with cocoa dominating the flavor as well. The finish is sweet cocoa and is chalky at times. Pretty much a one-trick pony.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Pours turbid deep brown with fizzy, 1-finger khaki head. Aroma of scwarzbier, with the dark roast malt and slight dark chocolate and slight molasses and nuts. Tastes tart, with some fruity dry red winet notes, plus roasty malt. There is a definite lactobacillus presence here, which gives this one a sour flavor; a flavor which I am not sure was intended. Let’s rate this and just say I’ll rerate with a fresh sample later. For now, it tastes like a mixture of chocolate syrup and vinegar poured over and collected from my wife’s unwashed feet.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Dark brown color with a tannish type head, decent retention, good lacing. Aroma was cocoa and coffee. Flavor was nasy sour cocoa/chocolate mixed with coffee, lactic notes, sour citrus, and diacetyl. This sucker was pretty bad, acidic, astringent, sour, nasty weak mouthfeel. Another TK bust beer.
