Pours to a nice thick beige head and good lacing. Dark brown color. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and slightly espresso-like. Flavor is rich with dark chocolate, caramel malt, coffee and balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium heavy and good CO2. Overall a pleasant drinking experience.

Very dark in appearance the ruby highlighted Porter is lost to this blacker than night addition. The head was creamy but not particularly stout.

Lots of dry chocolate malt hits the nose with hints of coffee and roasted malt. The taste follows suit with dry chocolate leading the way and roasted coffee holding after the taste. Velvety smooth on the tongue and dry in the mouth, the feel is much like the taste in its composition.

Overall, this is really tasty and a great experience but I missed the Mocha portion that is held in the name. No worries, as the flavorful stout-like presence is more than enough to get you through.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a dark brown with a mocha colored firm head that was pretty persistent.

S: dark roastedness, fresh chocolate, nuttiness and some pine hopping.

T: For flavor there was dark roasted coffee, and sweet chocolate. The flavor was nicely balanced between the coffee and chocolate. The roasted nature was very smooth, dry and robust with some dark mocha beans.

M: creamy and lightly carbonated with a smooth texture and slickness on the tongue.

D: Hearty porter with a very good drinkability and enjoyment.

Pours a dark brown with a moderately creamy tan head that collapses unevenly. Opaque. Aroam is roasty, almost (but not quite) smoky, slightly sweet, like semi-sweet to bitter dark chocolate. Smells heavy! Flavor begins coffee-malty, the coffee-style bitterness really shows through. Finishes with a solid bite of hops, moreso than many porters I've had. Mouthfeel is moderate, maybe slightly thin, with decent creaminess. Drikability is very good in the right occassion (a cool evening).

The first few sips were amazing - lots of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. But as the beer started to warm up, these flavors became less prominent. Maybe it's because my palate became overwhelmed or the flavor just changes as it warms up. Anyways, still very tasty.

Thanks to Moniker for sending one bottle my way.

A: The beer is light dark color with some brownish/redish color on the edge. The head is brown but disappear rapidly.
S: Roasted malts with some notes of chocolate. Some hints of licorice.
T: Espresso taste like. The bitterness is one of the espresso types with some dark chocolate.
M: Very nice in the mouth, the taste lingers in the mouth.
D: So easy to drink.

Overall, an excellent Porter. Refreshing and tasty at the same time.
