On tap at Monkey Paw. Described as an Imperial Chocolate Porter aged on cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.
A: A dark brown bordering on black with a finger of light brown froth that lingers and eventually settles to a thin collar.
S: Decadent fudge and dark chocolate with accompanying vanilla (light) and earth. Roasted grains meet a faint dark fruit presence
T: Rich cocoa and dark chocolate with lighter notes of vanilla. Faintly earthy, with roasted grains and a lower bitterness. The cocoa is very nice but the vanilla is just a little too mellow to push it above a 4.0 for flavor.
M: Lower full body with lower medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and just a touch thin.
Overall: Another nice beer from Monkey Paw. A thicker mouthfeel and an increase in the vanilla presence would make this outstanding.
Serving type: on-tap
