Have had a chocolate stout before, but I think it was just extra dark malt; with maybe, maybe a little added cocoa? Can't remember.
Pleasant flavors and a thick mouth feel. The aftertaste reminded me of bitter molasses.
A porter sounds interesting, pity it's from Hersey's™ cocoa though...

There is a dark roasted malted barley called chocolate. It's about as dark as they roast it short of black patent malt. They both are commonly used in stouts and porters. Chocolate added to a mash doesn't seem out of the question though I never have done it.

Nice they brought it back. Had it before and I like how you can taste the chocolate syrup as you swallow it

I've had this beer a bunch of times before and my mother adores it. It's definitely a dessert beer that's a chocolate bar in beer form. It's a nice beer. I'll have to pick some up before mom visits me again.

had it a year or two ago when it first came out. as a Pennsylvanian I thought this would have been a natural to go along with our traditional foods such as pierogis, scrapple, and Middleswarth potato chips all eaten while standing in a pothole, but honestly the beer's just a solid meh. not terrible, just a slightly bitter Yuengling

/hungry for scrapple now

Maybe I still hold a grudge over the Trump support. Maybe I'm set in my ways. Either way, Sam Smith's is a superior beer.

Porters are gross.

I'm sure somebody's made a 'farked by a hop dildo' porter.

Yuengling & Hershey together in the same product?  Please, stop, I can't take so much mediocre-ness.

The best Chocolate Porter I've ever had was in Flagstaff, AZ.

PSA: Chocolate malt is a real thing.

I had a couple chocolate stouts before I found out I couldn't do the gluten and I liked them.  However, my favorite beer since going gluten free is a stout brewed with cocoa and coffee (Ingredients: water, millet, corn, candi syrup, hops, cocoa nibs, coffee, yeast):

One of my favorite brews I ever did was a chocolate &black raspberry honey mead.

Found black raspberry honey on sale at the local shop, went to a country grocers and found pure cocoa.

Proceeded to brew 5 gallons with some black malt for color (I wanted inky blackness) and to offset the bitterness from the high alcohol content, cocoa and black malt I went to town with some lactose.

I ended up bottling the thing in dark blue glass 750 ml bottles, so you could see the reflective blackness through the azure bottles, it was like watching nightfall in a bottle.

I think it ended up being like around 14% abv, and for as much as people in the field questioned the madness it came out wayyyy too easy to drink and was just absolutely beautiful in presentation.

Almost like chocolate milk if you pulled all the fat and protein out and replaced it with a dry mead.
