Sammy (11498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
A tasty though not great porter. Yes, chocolate and sweetness all whipped up, fluffy and granular malted milk mouthfeel. The bitterness is hops and I was Ok with it, although my 23-year old who shared the bottle thought it was a it metallic and not spot on the style.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle Clear, very dark lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet offers big-time chocolate and lesser notes of tobacco and cola. Full-bodied and creamy with kicked-back carbonation. The hearty flavor is sweet and chocolaty. Finishes bittersweet (more bitter than sweet). Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock!

Aroma of chocolate malts, earth, smoked wood, and toasted brown sugar. Flavor of chocolate and caramel malts, earth, coffee, wood, and some dark fruits (berries and plums). Finishes with a cigarette taste. Medium-bodied, with an earthy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Pretty unique beer.

More dry finish. Great dark chocolate, cocoa nibs. Light to moderate roast, mild coffee. Moderate sweet-plus taste, moderate bitter. A very solid assertive roasty baltic porter.
