This is an extract version of my best of show Chocolate Porter. It is almost the same as the all-grain version, and much easier.
A chocolatey version of a Robust Porter, this also does extremely well in the specialty beer category.

Food Pairing

Great for dessert and a lovely Fall beer. This also pairs well with beef dishes
