Aroma of hops and chocolate but the taste was all hops. Thick mouthfeel. Disappointing overall. Bottle. dwyerpg (6222) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Smooth beer with much more cocoa than hops. Interedting. Worth more exploration than the sample size I had. ben4321 (6547) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2017
12 oz bottle from jcos.
Dark brown, thin head. Light, spotty lace. Aroma of lots of chocolate. Nice hop undertone. Good mouthfeel. Blind, I said chocolate and a little hops, somewhere between a Black IPA and a hoppy Porter, and that seems just about as accurate as you can get here. Sorry to see these guys him the same dark side as this website... SudsMcDuff (8438) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2017

Bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Some earthiness, chocolate, and some roast.

On tap at City Taphouse, pours a muddy brown with some soft, white head. Nose has cocoa powder, cracked grains, some toast, a little earthy soil. Flavor has more malt, some cola here, dark chocolate. Dry finish. ordybill (1801) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a dark brown color with a medium sized tannish colored head. The aroma is roasted malt, cocoa and pine. The taste is cocoa , malt and pine hops. A very good porter. swesson (462) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2017
From a bottle. Pours a dark brown and makes a tan head with some good lacing. Aroma is of hops and a small bit of cocoa nibs. The bitterness of the cocoa and the hops present a very pleasant, but different taste than what I expected. This is cocoa, not chocolate, so there's no sweetness. Also a rich taste of roasted malts make this a unique, tasty combination.

1/3/17. Thanks, CORRRRALLLLLL! I was surprised that this not only worked but was quite tasty. Mild hoppy aroma, some chocolate. Great flavor, chocolate melds surprisingly well with the hoppiness and malts. Tasty! CObiased (507) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2017
12oz bottle - it’s a very dark brown but not quite black with a med to thin silky tan head. The aroma is faint but I do detect some cocoa powder, a whiff of pine and roasted barley. Not as chocolatey as I had hoped for but I do like the roasty character, milk chocolate and hop notes.
