3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy light brown head. Retention is very good and a finger ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: As advertised, this has a big cocoa aroma from the start. Roasted malts, chocolate, layers of caramel, and molasses. A touch grainy with a solid neutral malt sweetness.
3.75 T: Tastes good too. Again, big cocoa with chocolate. Roasted malts, molasses, and caramel.
4.0 M: Medium body. Pleasantly creamy with good moderate carbonation.
3.75 D: My only issue with this brew is that it doesn’t hold up throughout the night. I had four of them yesterday but only really enjoyed my first two.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 ounce can purchased as part of a mix 6 pack at Dent Kroger, tasted on December 27, 2015. Opaque brown color, aroma off cocoa and roasted malt with some distracting chemical notes, cocoa/roasted malt flavor compromised by a medicinal taste. This beer seemed much better when I had it previously, and that was also from a can. Hopefully I can try this on draft in the future.

12 ounce can thanks to phaleslu. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam that has good retention. The aroma has a roasty, floral, and fruity character to it. A bit of ash. The taste is more toward the bitter side. Reminds me of a very dark chocolate. Medium body and medium carbonation.

A very nice Porter, with a good bitterness and burnt flavors, just a hint of cocoa and coffee flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can purchased at the Party Source in Bellvue, KY. West Sixth Pay It Forward Cocoa Porter is a dark brown liquid with a full head of small bubbles. Nose is delightfully roasted malt, cocoa notes and black coffee. Taste is a touch sweet at the beginning but dry at the end. Very odd. Flavors of dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Body is full and a bit creamy. A nice porter.

Can sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks AriSG. Very dark brown. Roasty, coconut and cocoa aroma, roasty, chocolatey taste, with soft bitterness. Medium body, long, lingering woodsy and chocolate finish with some vanilla.

Can shared at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks drfabulous for this can! Dark brown to black with a rather creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of roast, cocoa, and a bit of coffee. Sweetish flavor with cocoa, some roast, and a drier finish with a bitterish touch. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. Very nice.
