Chief BlackHawk Porter is a robust black and sharply bittersweet ale. This style was traditionally the session beer consumed by the porters in London.

Bottled 12/7/12. Drank 12/19/13. Over a year old. Cap exploded. Scared the hell out of me. Pours oily black with a fluffy light off-brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee, vanilla, licorice, some dark fruits, bread. Taste is rich, bittersweet; dark chocolate, creamy, roast malt, licorice, hints of dark fruit; very tasty. Nice lacing. Chewy mouth feel. Medium-low carbonation. Really tasty. Nice. I enjoyed this beer a lot.

Deep black pour, ruby hue with a thin and fizzy khaki bubbly head .. aroma of sweet chocolatey and deep roasted malts with light coffee flavor .... taste is of roasted malts with light coffee, caramel and light chocolate malts .... finish is dry ... simple porter mouthfeel is a little slick and the body is thin

Paid $4.00 for a 6 oz. half pint at Hopleaf. Color is hard to see in poor lighting but it looks typical, with thin bubbly tan head. Nose is milk chocolate, roasted barley and caramelized sugar. The flavor is rather nice with the aroma reflecting the taste with the addition of small amounts of espresso beans and vanilla hints. Body displays some creaminess in texture yet, also has a thin watery element. Still after completing the half pint I realized that it was still rather nice to drink with good flavors.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is of chocolate, ashy malt, nuts and a bit of pepper. Taste is a medium to light body chocolate, roasty malt taste with some pepper as well. Not bad.

Pour is dark brown/black with a thinnish tan head. Nose is bitter almost sour. Very yeasty. Some hints of burnt coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Taste is more pleasant than nose. Nice roasted malt flavor with dry burnt coffee mouthfeel. Glass has nice lacing as I drink. Okay but glad it was part of a build your own sixer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rather impressive porter, with a dark, nutty robustness that steals the show. Pours a dark, almost oily brown to black, with a great profile and aroma. Nice one for sure.
