Beer Review - Noble Brewer Nevermore Chocolate Porter

First beer review on the site since April of 2015?! Heresy!!

Noble Brewer - Nevermore Chocolate Porter

Beer Type: American Porter - 7.50% ABV

Appearance: 22oz brown bottle with the standard Noble Brewer label. Beer is a dark brown/black with a solid tan head that clings to the glass.

Big bitter chocolate aroma followed quickly by dark fruits and ending back on chocolate/hot cocoa.

First Drink:
Dark chocolate on the tip of the tongue is quickly smacked with roasted malts and dried fruit flavors.

Velvet smooth with a slightly sticky finish.    

Last Drink:
Getting more of the fruit from the chocolate now almost like chocolate cherry flavors. Can taste more of the ABV now as well.      

A big drinker and not something you will be pounding by the glass. A nice sipper.      

Noble Brewer features notable home brewers and their beers. This was originally brewed by Greg Tucker and was part of the Fall 2015 seasonal lineup. Had a couple in the cellar I just finished off for this review!      

5 out of 5. If you love chocolate and you love dark beer you'll dig this.
