Pours black with light brown head. A strong chocolate powder aroma. A chocolate taste that’s a bit watered down with some roasted malts. Not much of a strong aftertaste. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Black color, thin light brown head, quick fade. Aroma is milk chocolate and roasty malts. Thin medium body. Taste is mostly milk chocolate with some roast. Solid offering. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. It pours brown with a light brown head. The aroma is very chocolaty with cocoa powder and vanilla. The flavor is the same. Nice rich cocoa notes without being too thin or sugary, but not syrupy either. Pretty simple stuff, but crowd pleasing I guess. sinfull (1658) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2016

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - nice dark reddish color. Great chocolatey aroma and flavor. Tastes like dessert. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Chocolaty aroma. Smooth, cocoa and coffee, a little caramel and nuts. No bitterness, just a rolling finish. Not too thick or creamy, Very nice. gripweed57 (2463) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2016
12 ounce bottle. 6.5% ABV. Barely translucent dark brown color topped by a large rocky beige head. Rich chocolate malt nose. Like a chocolate cake glazed donut. Flavor follows nose. Sweet roasted malt and milk chocolate flavor. Medium bodied but on the thin side. Notes of mocha and cocoa powder. MacNJ (95) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2016
River horse produced a respectable chocolate porter that has a nice nose, black color with a not so long lasting head, and a smooth coating on the tongue. However, it’s not as rewarding as Yards’ Chocolate Love Stout or Troegs’ Scratch Batch Chocolate Stout. I do realize that a porter is different than a stout, but based solely on flavor, I would sniff out another brew. Cheers! Pumpkin87 (248) - - FEB 7, 2016
Pours deep, opaque dark brown, almost black with just a faint hint of garnet, with medium mocha head that leaves some skim.
Great nose of milk chocolate, molasses, bread, coffee, light pine. Palate again leads with milk chocolate but adds darker cacao tone, plus a hint of orange.
A bit of creaminess complements medium body. Clean, semi-dry finish with a bit of fizz balances the sweetness.
Another good porter from River Horse.
