No date on the bottle, but purchased about one month earlier at an awesome joint in Jamaica, Vermont called Meuleman's. Opened 25 March 2014.

A: The Mogli poured a dark ruby out of the bottle, but was a dark brown in the glass. 1/2 finger of lightly tan head, which dissipates into ring. There is a tiny amount of scattered lace.

S: Deep Chocolate roast. Cocoa nibs, dark chocolate. Some milk chocolate too. Little bit of booze mixes things up. Maybe a little vanilla behind all that chocolate. Smells very good and I feel like I'm missing something obvious. It really reminds me of a chocolate egg cream. Although so chocolatey, its very well balanced.

T: Nice dark chocolate. Maybe a little oak, but I feel that the nose was more complex and interesting. I may be getting distracted by the mouthfeel though.

MF: While it may be standard for a porter, It comes across as thin for a porter this size. It can't support the flavors in the rest of the beer, which are so substantial.

O: This brew is so close to being fantastic, and I would definitely purchase again. I hope that Caldera makes a sister to the Mogli in which the feel of this brew is more substantial.
