Got two bottles as a gift.
As the label suggests, there is a hint of chocolate on the nose. slight smell of play-doh? Good bitterness and really smooth mouthfeel. Super small bubbles for the head. Slightly warming effect from the alcohol. Solid porter in a 12oz. bottle. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Tap] Jet black pour with a brown colored nitro foam head on top. Sweet and chocolaty aromas. Flavors of Belgian milk chocolate, cream, mocha, earthy hops and vanilla. Creamy consistency. Coating mouthfeel. A tad on the sweet side, but the flavors come together very well. Good stuff. Tasting notes from 8/2014. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Smooth Porter with hints of real chocolate and coffee.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Opaque, vey dark copper, forever lasting nitro mousse.
Light body, weak flavor, little acidity or alcohol heat, watery mouthfeel, good length but dilute finish.
Bitter and dry,
Unmistakable real chocolate, dark roast grains, missing malty sweetness.
Watery, avoid. TheBear11D (365) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Shake pours black with a thick foamy light tan head that lasts a long while. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee, however, what stands out is that the chocolate smell is the closest to the actual smell that I’ve ever encountered in a beer. The flavor is dark chocolate with small amounts of coffee and caramel. Again, the chocolate flavor is very well done and delicious. Overall this is a solid beer.

Sweet chocolate aroma. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Thin mouth feel. Sweet taste with a hint of mint. No bitter aftertaste. On nitro at Yard House Las Vegas LINQ. steez (34) - Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Looks like Porter smells like a chocolate phosphate but was pretty empty on feel. I didn’t get any chewiness or depth. I have a sixer to decide. ain’t no Anchor or Founders though. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is chocolate right away. Creamy, lightly burnt malt, bitterness at the end. Cocoa in the lasting after taste. Great lacing.

Poured from a bottle. Great frothy brown head, good lacing, a harbinger of smoothness to come. Surprising coffee aroma, not as much on the taste. Good beer, makes me proud to be a Buffalo. aracauna (3680) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Smells very much like chocolate milk. The main problem is that the flavor isn’t as satisfying as the aroma. A little thin.
