look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance- Opaque Black with a thin half finger of foam on top. Doesn't Linger
Aroma- roasty, chocolate grain, slight banana, earthy. I dont get hardly any coffee in the nose. As it warms I get more of a grassy hoppy aroma (not floral)
Taste- deep roast grain at the beginning some smooth chocolate and a slight coffee flavor in the middle with a sharper hoppy finish. I am not sure if this contains actual coffee. The hops are resin-y not unlike an Irish stout,
Mouth- it is silky smooth but also dry in the finish, I want this to have a fuller mouth feel, maybe lactose sugar, but that may take it out of the porter and make it more of a stout.
Overall- I like this beer because I think it is accomplishing a lot with just the grain. I don't know if it contains actual chocolate or coffee but The Term "Mocha" implies those two flavors, if not those ingredients. I like that attention is payed to the hops and keeps it all in balance. I would have this again.
