Tommyknocker Cocoa Porter Winter Warmer
I picked up a bottle of Tommyknocker Cocoa Porter Winter Warmer at D's Six Pax and Dogz in Pittsburgh. The beer has a deep brown color with a light tan head. I was surprised to notice some yeast flakes floating around in the beer. It smells strongly of dark chocolate and the aroma can only be described as an amazing smell. The taste is full of dark chocolate flavor with hints of roasted malts. The alcohol content is 5.7% ABV. I thought that the beer might be a little sweet and maybe a little too carbonated, but overall I did enjoy it. I wouldn't buy a case of it, but I would buy another bottle.
