A: very dark brown color with a nice head and decent lacing

S: strong chocolate aroma

T: nice chocolate flavor but don't sense any of the flavors from barrel aging. Otherwise a good imperial stout flavor

M: good carbonation. could be a bit thicker

O: overall a good imperial stout with chocolate flavors but the barrel aging doesn't seem to add much to this beer

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.

Thanks Jae!

A- Darker brown transparent around the edges. Thin lacing around the glass. No legs

S- More malt than anything. No real vanilla essence. Well, I guess a bit.

T- Vanilla in the front for me. Malts in the background. Leaves a weird aftertaste but a well done brew.

M- Kinda thin, creamy.

O- A well done porter with some nice adjuncts in there.

M-
