Very nice drinkable porter. Deep dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma is strong chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate. Sweet and bitter balance well.

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.
