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

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
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. ★ 661 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 08, 2014

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.

Dark. Full of chocolate, lightly roasted malt, decent bitterness, sweet. Medium bodied. Finish is dryer than expected. Solid.

DocJitsu (1587) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pours a dark cola brown with a narrow taupe head. Pungent coffee aroma. Chocolate notes as well. Astringent. Dark chocolate and dark coffee bitterness.

JStax (4992) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2015
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.

Panzuriel (1823) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2015
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.

Refrigerated crowler poured into a glass. Medium brown with no head. Aroma is coffee, medium body, no carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is coffee, cocoa, and slightly bitter finish.

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.
