From 12 ounce bottle.

The first thing on opening the bottle is the sour smell that hits the nose!

The pour looks beautiful, deep brown/black liquid with frothy beige head that lasted well untill I took a taste!

I will not finish a brew that I do not like, so this was tossed after 2 mouthfuls! It tasted to me of rancid coffee and it left a nasty aftertaste that unfortunately lingered quite a while!

From notes verbatim on 10/8/10

A: Deep brown, spotting sheet of cream over beer. No visible rays of light.

S: Spicy cascade hops (surprise), touch of cocoa over the hoppy porter backbone.

T: Reminds me of leftover espresso grain that has been left behind. Not good to me.

M: Wish it was creamier or less combative on my tongue. I almost want to add sugar.

D: I don't care for this as a mocha beer. Need to tone down the carbonation.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

I don't know if I got an old bottle or something but this was very underwhelming. It looked good enough, dark and black, poured a decent head. No smell whatsoever. I see reviews saying that it smelled like coffee or chocolate, I just smell a very vague bitterness that has no real character.

The taste is extremely bland and very light. Again, no real character and to move on to mouthfeel, it's very very thin and there is basically no carbonation present.

It's somewhat drinkable because it's so inoffensive but that's not something I look for in a beer. I'll have to try this if I'm out in Oregon again but this time I was really not impressed at all.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured from the bottle into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer poured black but had a amber opaqueness to sunlight. The head was almost nonexistant.

Smell: I could smell toasty roasty coffee but nothing else.

Taste: The taste had a combination of coffee and chocolate no surprises.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: Overall this beer strikes me as being thin and watery.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Deep chocolate with dirty cream head

S: Medicinal, cough syrup, some coffee and roasted malt

T: Sweet and a bit sickly. Not flawed but not particularly pleasant.

M: Smooth though syrupy.

O: Not my style. Seems well enough made but there are lots of beers I look forward to drinking, this not being one of them.

2.48/5  rDev -35.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Dark mahogany brown, with a moderate sized tan head. Aroma has slight hints of chocolate, but no noticeable coffee. Flavor is mostly of chocolate with coffee highlights, and some roasted malt, but no hops. The surprising and overpowering sweetness of the flavor is offputting. Also, the mouthfeel is slick, greasy, and somewhat heavy. No need to come back to this one.

Serving type: on-tap
