COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zombie Monkie is a dark, rich porter, carefully brewed for the post-apocalyptic world to come. Crafted with lots of roasty dark chocolate and specialty malts, then inoculated with enough hops to add a floral/citrus character in the finish. Its hardy, complex, and interesting, because you might be drinking it for a long time.

Pour from a 12oz can. Dark brew with one finger of head after pouring, great head retention. Aroma is complex malts - sweet malts, chocolate, coffee, toast - with overtones of green fruit and floral notes. Interesting aroma with great character. Taste is sweet and rich malt up front - again chocolate and coffee - with an increasingly complex malt finish and hops notes subtly emerging at the very end. An excellent porter.

Aroma of cola from a dark brown pour. Long lasting tan head. The taste is flat grainy - not much malt, coffee etc. Medium light body. Overall, ok but not the flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16floz can,BBD 12.24.2016, paid a discounted $5 for a four-pack. Poured into a mug glass. Ive had this before, and enjoyed it. I hold it up to the light, and no light transfers. Theres a sticky head to complete the appearance portion of this review. Smells pretty similar to a dunkel, makes me wonder if dark German malts are incorporated. A straight forward bold porter, where roasted malts take center stage. Pumpernickel and dark chocolate over a heavy feeling medium body compose the palate. Well done.

12/22/16. On tap at a martini bar at home in the QC - Iowa side as I recall. Black pour with a small tan head. Light roasted malts aroma, hints of chocolate. Decent flavor, roasted malts, cream, chocolate, coffee. Eh.

heemer77 (5351) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Can. Perfectly black body with a fluffy light brown head. Nose of lightly roasted coffee and almonds. There is also some milk chocolate. This tastes like sweetened coffee and raisins. Notes of dark chocolate are also present. The finish has some bread crust and a little hint of toffee. The body is light for the abv. Solid porter.

Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of creamy malt and chocolate. Taste is bitter chocolate and dark roasted malt with a bit of sweet fruit. Slippery palate with light carbonation and a long darkly bitter finish.

Nice roasted malts, rich chocolate hints of earth, and some hoppiness. Flavor is about the same as the aroma rich, bitter chocolate up front with the bitterness changing to that of burnt coffee. Overall it a nice porter.

Dark brown with nice head that fell off fast. Aroma is raisin, metallic, with not much of a roasted smell. The taste however is loaded with roasted malt so not sure why Im not smelling it. Maybe this rapid changing weather is messing with my senses. Overall a pretty decent porter.
