SanTan Brewing Company Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is SanTan Brewing Company Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter. This is one of the several beers I brought back from a recent trip to Phoenix, AZ.  

From the SanTan Brewing Company website: “Sex Panther 2013 Double Chocolate Porter is a late Winter Seasonal that is brewed with Colonial Rosewood Cocoa and large amounts of Chocolate malt giving this beer a huge chocolaty flavor combined with hints of truffle and molasses. White Wheat is added to give Sex Panther a smooth, creamy head that lasts all night! Perfectly paired with smoked meats and sweet treats, Sex Panther is 6.9% ABV and dark as Chocolate. Enjoy”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark reddish brown with a tan head and good lacing.
Aroma: Roasted and chocolate malt, molasses, roasted nuts, brown sugar and dark chocolate.
Taste: Cocoa, caramel, toffee, roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate.  Nicely sweet, nutty with just a touch of hop bitterness.
Overall: I completely enjoyed SanTan Brewing Company Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter and found it to be a solid Porter.  The lingering chocolate sweetness made this 6.9% ABV offering something that I wish I had around to drink more of.  I guess there’s something about beers that I bring home from trips.  The one off experience makes them all that more special to drink and savor. Check it out if you find yourself in Arizona.
