Can. Deep brown body with a frothy tan head that rapidly diminishes. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, light metallic, ash, earthiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. A bit of a chalky finish. Taste of roasted coffee and chocolate.

kramer (6313) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is rather heavy on the cocoa with a chocolate and lightly roasted maltiness. The flavor is equally heavy on the cocoa nibs, with a slight citrusy twang up front. Some chocolate, burnt caramel, and a light leather note on the finish. A little licorice emerges on the finish after a while as well. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering cocoa finish. Pretty decent stuff.

willisread (2941) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Can from West Side (canned October 2015). Pours a deep brown to black with a small brown head. Deep roasted cacao, treacle notes with some Nutella and light soy sauce. Some bakers chocolate bitterness still in the finish. Hides the booze well for 7%. Holds up pretty well, will re-rate a fresh one when I can grab one.

Luvystypotables (1781) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Aroma of cocoa, and coffee with a hint of smoked mat. Pours a black color with a tan head. Tastes of cocoa and smoked malt with a light body and a mild bitter cocoa finish.

degbert (1741) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Can. Pours an opaque black with a high, creamy, fine-grained off-tan head. Nose is a bit subdued because of heavy head but has notes of vanilla, chocolate, roast nuts, and coffee. Much drier than the nose portended; smoke, baking chocolate, coffee, and fig predominant. Well structured and integrated. Finish is very very good; long, dry, piercing, and moving into licorice and espresso. Quite good.

overwhelmingly bitter, which is not my style. i could see some liking this if you like the more bitter side of beer, but im not a fan.

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 doesnt hold up throughout the night. I had four of them yesterday but only really enjoyed my first two. ★ 661 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 08, 2014

Drjohnrock (747) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2015
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.
